When to submit your application depends on a couple of things. But generally, we say, "Why not submit it now?" Applying to Wesleyan online for free.
Early Decision Applicants
If Wesleyan is your clear first choice, you’ll want to apply under Early Decision, which is a binding decision. Applications (and all supporting documents) must be received by November 15. You’ll hear from us by December 15; if admitted, you’ll be required to withdraw applications from all other schools, and pay your enrollment and housing deposit at the time we notify you of your acceptance.
Regular Decision/Scholarship Priority Applicants
Regular Decision/Scholarship Priority applications and supporting documents must be received by January 15. Applicants meeting this deadline will have first consideration for Wesleyan’s merit scholarships. You’ll hear by February 15, and will have until the national reply date of May 1 to pay your enrollment and housing deposit.
