We BELIEVE in a Strong Foundation

A successful college career starts with a strong foundation. NC Wesleyan was founded by the Methodist church in 1956 in Rocky Mount, North Carolina. In 2015, Wesleyan was recognized as the fastest growing private college in North Carolina by NC Independent Colleges & Universities, and we are working to keep that pace. We are growing our student population, faculty, curriculum, and athletic programs. You can believe… there’s something for you today at NC Wesleyan.
