North Carolina community college graduates with a 2-year degree, who enroll full-time at Wesleyan, are eligible for the 2+ Wesleyan Program. This program immediately allows those students to begin satisfying the requirements for their four-year degree.
Military Discount: All active duty and veterans of all branches of the military, including the National Guard and Coast Guard receive a 10% discount.  This discount will be applied as an internal grant towards the cost of attending after the drop/add period. The discount is for students only, and excludes family members.

Once you have been admitted to the college and your FAFSA has been received by our Office of Financial Aid, you will be sent a complete financial aid package.  You will automatically be considered for merit scholarships at the time of your acceptance.
