International students

Throughout its history, Wesleyan College has enjoyed a strong relationship with international students and welcomes their applications. The Office of International Student Services is available to help with all international students’ needs, from maintaining legal status to transitioning to college life in America. International applicants must submit the following:

  1. Application for admission: Complete all parts of the international application form and mail to: Wesleyan College; Office of Enrollment Services; 4760 Forsyth Road; Macon, GA 31210-4462. We prefer that you apply online.
  2. Application fee: There is no fee to submit an application online. A $30 fee is required to process paper applications.
  3. Standardized test scores: Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) results or American College Testing program (ACT) results should be sent to Wesleyan's Office of Enrollment Services by the testing agency or should appear on the transcript sent by the high school. Wesleyan's identification code for the SAT is 5895; for the ACT it is 0876. International students who earned an International Baccalaureate Diploma at the conclusion of their high school curriculum are not required to take the SAT or the ACT. A minimum of 213 (computer-based), 550 (paper-based), or 80 (Internet-based) on the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), sponsored by the Educational Testing Service. Wesleyan College will also accept International English Language Testing System (IELTS) scores, sponsored by the British Council, IDP: IELTS Australia and the University of Cambridge ESOL Examinations. Students must score at least 6.0 on the IELTS, with no subscore lower than 5.5. International applicants from IB Diploma Programs may satisfy the TOEFL or IELTS admission requirement by scoring 4 or higher in the Diploma Program higher-level or standard level English language examinations. Students who graduate from IB diploma programs with a grade point average of 3.0 or higher will receive the President's Scholarship. Students who earn the International Baccalaureate Diploma will receive the Trustee Scholarship. Consult with the Financial Aid office for more information. International applicants who graduate from an English speaking high school or have successfully completed at least 24 hours of study at an English speaking post-secondary institution may ask to have the language proficiency test waived.
  4. Transcripts: An official copy of the high school transcript; or college/university transcripts translated into English (if necessary), along with a course-by-course credit evaluation from a professional evaluation agency indicating credit hours and grades converted to the semester system of higher education in the United States. (Applicants may contact the Office of Enrollment Services for information regarding credential evaluation agencies.)
  5. School Counselor or Teacher recommendation: While optional, students are strongly encouraged to submit 1 or 2 recommendations. Recommendation forms can be found online at www.wesleyancollege.edu/apply.
  6. VISA Documents: An International Student Certificate of Finance, bank statement, and a copy of a valid passport.
  7. Deposit: If admitted, the student must remit the required $400 enrollment fee. The enrollment fee is refundable until May 1st.
 

While international students may be considered for merit scholarships, they are ineligible for most need-based forms of financial aid. Before an I-20 form can be issued, admitted students must demonstrate the financial wherewithal to cover Wesleyan's costs and complete all required medical forms. On the date that new students move into residence halls, the balance for comprehensive fees is by the due date established by the College and is to be paid by check or money order drawn on an American bank. International high school graduates may be required to provide verification of their high school transcript and supporting documents, if requested. Contact the Office of Enrollment Services for information regarding credential evaluation agencies.

International Student ProgramS

One of the largest clubs on campus is AXIS, the international student organization. Students from all over the world are represented, and all are welcome to join! AXIS hosts several events throughout the year, including an International Festival. AXIS is a place for international students to gather with their peers and learn about other cultures.

The Wesleyan College Friendship Families Program links international students with local families to share their cultures. Through activities with their Friendship Families, students learn about American culture and life in Macon. In turn, the families gain a greater understanding of world cultures. Learn more here.

The Office of International Student Services plans programs for international students throughout the year. Trips to international markets and festivals, sporting events, and other cultural events get students out into the community for fun activities, and something exciting is happening on campus every single day.
