     Wesleyan College

    • 11:1 student to faculty ratio: This means that your average class size at Wesleyan College is 11 students and a lot of the time, even fewer than that. It means one-on-one time with your professor, individualized attention and help from your professor, and meaningful, engaged classroom discussions. And all classes are taught by facult
    • 95% of 2014 undergraduates accepted into their first choice graduate school: 95%! Once you declare a major, you will work with the same advisor throughout your time here. There is no getting to your last semester and going through your degree audit only to find out you are missing one general education class that will keep you from graduating. There is no being turned away from a graduate program because you didn't take the appropriate prerequisites.
    • Study Abroad and International Recognition: Wesleyan offers students the opportunity to study abroad in more than 40 countries and maintains exchange agreements with universities in Korea, Japan, Russia, Ireland and China. In addition, Wesleyan faculty lead special study groups to various countries including Italy, Guatemala and Great Britain. Wesleyan women come from all across the US and more than 20 countries to experience a truly global education. Our Model UN team just won a national competition in Washington, DC! Plus, our new Global Scholars program is proving to be successful in attracting the best and brightest students to Macon, GA!
    • Student Life & Sisterhood: Wesleyan's vibrant 200-acre wooded campus has been host to all kinds of events ranging from the Cherry Blossom Festival finale to WESFest - a music festival sponsored by Student Affairs and held on our quad. We have 5 NCAA Division III sports teams and an IHSA Equestrian team. Our stables currently house about a dozen horses. You can bring your own horse, take riding lessons, or hold a work study job there! And . . . we have more than 20 clubs and organizations that are designed to enhance your college experience. If you don't find a club or organization that suits you, start your own!
    • Internships and Post-graduate Opportunities: Wesleyan College has established relationships with more than 70 organizations that provide internships. Our alumnae are also an excellent resource for students needing internships. Once you become a member of the Wesleyan family, you instantly gain hundreds of connections that could land you a job in places like DC, California or Alaska. With a little "networking help," our students have landed internships at NASA, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, Merrill Lynch and the CDC, just to name a few. Get connected now!

Confused by the application terms?


Rising Seniors need to be familiar with these terms:

Rolling-you can apply anytime (some are accepting applications now). You usually find out in 3-6 weeks whether you are accepted, denied, or deferred.

Early Decision-this one is not recommended unless your acceptance is not dependent on financial aid and you have absolutely no doubt that you want to attend the school. If you get accepted you are contractually bound to enroll.

Early Action-your application can be sent by an earlier deadline and you find out your status earlier. There are many advantages to this type. You don’t have to notify the school regarding your decision until the normal May 1st date. This is a great way to get ahead of the process. Worth mentioning, you should research the freshman profile of the most current class to see if your credentials are competitive and weigh whether you have a good chance of being accepted.

Regular Decision-A set date by which your application must be received by the college. This means your application scores in its entirety must be in by this date including the teacher recs, SAT/ACT scores, etc. Most colleges set this date towards the end of the year or the first of the next year.

OF special note: pay particular notice to merit scholarship deadlines and whether you apply for institutional (school specific) scholarships separately or whether your application for admission also serves as your scholarship application. Unfortunately this varies from college to college. Never hesitate to ask questions!!!
