TUITION AND MANDATORY FEES FOR 2014-15

Wesleyan is committed to enrolling a diverse student body - including those from wide-ranging economic backgrounds.  We meet the full demonstrated need of admitted students, making it possible to attend Wesleyan regardless of one's financial circumstances. 

We meet this need through loans, grants and part-time employment.  And we ask students to borrow no more than a total of $19,000 over four years. We don't want Wesleyan students graduating with heavy debt burdens.

Wesleyan, which will not raise tuition rates in excess of inflation, is committed to reining in growth in the cost of attending over time. The University recently introduced a three-year option to make it possible for students to graduate in six semesters, with summer academic work.  This accelerated course of study is not for everyone, but it can save families about $50,000. 

A Wesleyan education can be surprisingly affordable. For more information, see our financial aid website.
