About NCWC

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. NCWC invites applications for admissions from students whose personal and academic record reveals intellectual ability and educational achievement.

The College 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, sexual orientation, disability or national or ethnic origin. To promote the exchange of ideas and values, the College seeks a diverse student body, admitting students of different backgrounds, interests and talents.

My Wesleyan Experience

When I chose Wesleyan, I never thought that it would impact my life so much. Faculty and staff were always there when I needed it, and I knew I could count on their help. I truly felt like I had a family there, which was really important for me to have because I was so far away from home. The different organizations, that I was part of, truly helped me for my professional career. Being part of the board for Impact and IBA, as well as helping the BGA with some marketing gave me experiences that I added on my resume and I actually use these experiences in my current job. The professors were a huge help. They were always willing to answer my questions in depth and to give additional materials to help me with my understanding. They gave me confidence in myself and I was taught that curiosity and tenacity is the key to succeed. I don’t regret choosing this college; I would never be the person I am now without the years spent there.Chloé Delmas
