The Value of a NC Wesleyan University Education
College is the gateway to a lifetime of opportunities for graduates. Cost & Aid can be overwhelming, but North Carolina Wesleyan can guide you down several pathways to an affordable college career. In fact, 100% of our traditional students receive financial assistance from a variety of sources such as grants, scholarships, work-study, and student loans.
Study shows some students end up paying less at a private college than a public institution due to the increased availability of merit and need-based scholarships.

Net Price Calculator
What is Net Price Calculator?
Net price calculators are available on a college’s or university’s website and allow prospective students to enter information about themselves to find out what students like them paid to attend the institution in the previous year, after taking grants and scholarship aid into account.
What does Net Price mean?
Net Price is the amount that a student pays to attend an institution in a single academic year AFTER subtracting scholarships and grants the student receives. Scholarships and grants are forms of financial aid that a student does not have to pay back.
