Residency Policy

Wesleyan College believes in the value of the College community and the importance of both the curricular and co-curricular life of students. Therefore, residence hall living is considered an important part of the total education process. All traditional undergraduate students are required to live on campus during their enrollment.

Requests to live off campus will be evaluated based on individual circumstance, and a waiver will be granted to students who meet at least one of the following criteria:

  • Living with a parent or legal guardian within 30 miles driving distance of campus
  • Fifth year seniors (8 full-time semesters – fall and spring – of Wesleyan College credit)
  • Married students
  • Parents who are primary caregivers of their child(ren)
  • At least 22 years old at the time of the start of classes
  • Enrolled part-time in classes (fewer than 12 credit hours)

Students who do not meet one of more of these criteria but who have extenuating personal circumstances are encouraged to submit a Change of Resident Status form and a statement of their petition to be approved for a waiver.

All individuals requesting an exemption from the residency requirement must submit the appropriate paperwork to the Director of Residence Life by July 1 (Fall Semester) or December 1 (Spring Semester).
