Graduate Admission Policies

Wesleyan College admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the College. Wesleyan does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, loan programs, and other school-administered programs. No person with a disability is, on the basis of the disability, excluded from participation in, denied benefits of, or otherwise subjected to discrimination under any program, employment, or activity at Wesleyan College.

Admission Notification. The Graduate Program Director thoroughly reviews each file and makes admission decisions according to the guidelines established by the faculty. One of the following decisions may be made on a student's application for admission:

Acceptance: Students will be notified of their acceptance by a letter from the Office of Enrollment Services. The College reserves the right to withdraw an offer of admission if new information, such as a final transcript, is inconsistent with credentials submitted with the student's application materials for admission.

Provisional Acceptance: Students may be provisionally accepted to the term for which they apply prior to the receipt of official transcripts. In order to enroll for the semester, students provisionally accepted must submit official transcripts prior to the end of the semester in order to be eligible for the second semester.

Denial: The College recognizes that the process of selecting students for admission cannot predict perfectly students' level of academic ability and motivation or general fit with a college. The College cannot offer admission to all students in a competitive pool of applicants.

Waitlist: Some competitive applicants may be offered an opportunity to be on a waiting list for admission.

Note: The College reserves the right to change policy. Students should contact the Office of Enrollment Services or refer to current publications for updated information on programs and policies. Satisfying requirements does not guarantee admission.

International Students. Throughout its history, Wesleyan College has enjoyed a strong relationship with international students and welcomes their applications. International students must submit the following:

Competency in English: 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 who graduate from an English speaking post-secondary institution may ask to have the language proficiency test waived. An International Student may also demonstrate English competency by taking China’s National College Entrance Exam (commonly known as the GAOKOA Exam). On the G7 version of the test, the student must score a minimum of 100 on the English portion. On the G5 version of the test, the student must score a minimum of 67 on the English portion. In addition, GTEC scores of at least 1190 as proof of English proficiency at the B2 level. Wesleyan College also accepts DuoLingo English Testing with a minimum score of 100.

Transcripts: An official copy of the 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.)

VISA Documents: An International Student Certificate of Finance, bank statement, and a copy of a valid passport.
