North Carolina Wesleyan University, founded in 1956, is a private co-educational liberal arts college, affiliated with the United Methodist Church. Wesleyan offers both undergraduate and graduate degree programs, and prepares students for professional advancement, lifelong learning and responsible participation in their communities. NCWU invites applications for admissions from students whose personal and academic record reveals intellectual ability and educational achievement.
The University considers applications under the rolling admissions system; therefore, applications are reviewed when all information has been received. Admission is granted to qualified applicants without regard to race, religion, color, sex, age, marital status, disability or national or ethnic origin. To promote the exchange of ideas and values, the University seeks a diverse student body, admitting students of different backgrounds, interests and talents.
My Wesleyan Experience
Becoming a Bishop.
NC Wesleyan seeks students with a commitment to learning, creativity, strong academic potential, intellectual curiosity, and a desire to contribute to a community based on our main Core Values. Admission to Wesleyan is based on academic record, including courses taken, grades earned, and class standing, followed by SAT or ACT test scores. Achievement in extracurricular activities, community participation, and a motivation to get involved and contribute to the Wesleyan campus community are also taken into consideration.
At North Carolina Wesleyan University, we deliver education that is personal, practical and purpose-driven.
