Founded in 1836, Wesleyan is the first college in the world chartered to grant degrees to women.
Make your move
Women who start their college careers elsewhere often transfer to Wesleyan and find a place that understands their needs and puts them first. Our goal is to make your transition to Wesleyan as simple as possible. You will work one-on-one with your own personal transfer coordinator who has experience working with transfer students and will guide you every step of the way. We understand the importance of flexible office hours and are glad to schedule appointments after hours and on weekends.
Transferring is a breeze
Applying to Wesleyan is easy as long as you carefully follow a few steps and submit all materials in a timely manner. First, start your admission file by completing a free online application at wesleyancollege.edu/apply. Then watch for an e-mail with instructions and the address to send high school and college transcripts. The rest of the admission process will be handled in conjunction with your admission counselor!
We invite you to spend time on campus. Wander around, tour a residence hall, attend a class, and meet students and faculty. You can come to a special event or plan your own tour—it’s up to you.
Our beautiful 200-acre lakeside campus is nestled in a northern suburb of Macon, Georgia, just 90 minutes south of Atlanta. Our century-old trees are a beautiful contrast to our recently renovated residence halls; multimillion-dollar athletic, wellness, and equestrian facilities; state-of-the-art science center; three professional art galleries; and natural arboretum with outdoor learning laboratory.

Wesleyan offers undergraduate degrees in 28 majors, including the Bachelor of Science in Nursing; 29 minors; and eight pre-professional programs, including Medicine, Law, Engineering, Pharmacy, Seminary, Allied Health Services, and Veterinary Medicine.
Wesleyan also offers a dual-degree program in Engineering with Georgia Tech, Auburn University, and Mercer University.
At Wesleyan you’ll find a thriving residence life program, NCAA Division III athletics—basketball, soccer, softball, tennis, and volleyball—a championship equestrian program, and meaningful opportunities for community involvement and leadership.
The liberal arts
In today’s labor market, career paths are changing rapidly, and graduates must draw from a variety of skill sets to adapt to challenges and capitalize on opportunities. A liberal arts education means studying broadly—taking classes in many different subjects—and building skills that are geared toward more than just one profession. This type of education can develop intellectual ability and prepare you for many fields in today’s workplace. Wesleyan’s “From Here to Career” four-year plan is designed to help students make connections between a liberal arts education and success in the workplace. Students will be exposed to a wealth of opportunities geared toward preparing them for life after college, exploring professional and career choices, and developing and demonstrating the knowledge and skills essential for professional success in any field.
The majority of students at a women’s college earn their undergraduate degrees in four years and are almost twice as likely to say they were prepared for life after college than graduates of co-ed schools.
Graduates of women’s colleges are twice as likely to earn a graduate degree as a public university alumna.
Financial aid for transfer students may include federal and state scholarships, grants, and loans, including Georgia Tuition Equalization Grants, HOPE Scholarships, and Federal Pell Grants.
