Information Sessions and More

Wesleyan University is currently open and welcoming a limited number of visitors per day.  Registration and proof of vaccination are required! Walk-ins are not permitted at this time. Visitors must wear masks when inside the Office of Admission and will not be allowed into any other buildings while on campus.

Our admission deans, students, and faculty are eager to meet and talk to you.

  • In Person Campus Visits

    On weekdays, visitors can register for either a morning or afternoon visit. The morning visit starts with a campus tour at 9:00 am followed by the information session at 10:30 am.  The afternoon visit includes a tour at 1:00 pm and information session at 2:30 pm.

    Beginning September 11, Saturday sessions will include an info session at 11:00 am and tour at 12:00 pm.  Sunday tours will take place at 12:00 pm.

    Space is limited to registered guests. (Due to present COVID restrictions, we regret we will not be in a position to accommodate unregistered visitors.)

  • Virtual Programming

    Online information sessions

    Our online information sessions are hosted by a Wesleyan admission dean and a current Wesleyan student who will provide an inside look at the Wesleyan community both academically and socially, as well as offer information about admission and financial aid.

    Information sessions are offered:

    • Tuesday at 4:00 pm EDT
    • Thursday at 7:00 pm EDT

    Sign up for a virtual information session.

    Tours

    Virtual tours will be hosted by a team of student tour guides.  They will 'walk' you through the campus using a PowerPoint presentation and will leave plenty of time at the end for questions. 

    Guests will be able to see the presenters and submit questions throughout the events using the chat function.  If you require closed captioning for a tour, please reach out to Jordan Nyberg, Assistant Director of Admission Events.

    Tours are offered:

    • Sunday-Friday at 9:00pm EDT

    Sign up for a virtual tour.

    If you are unable to join one of our live sessions, you can check our pre-recorded info session and campus tour video anytime! 

    Other Virtual Programming

    We are hosting many other virtual programs this Fall!  Check out the full list here!

  • Open House

    Wesleyan’s November Open House will take place on Thursday, November 11. 

    We will offer tours, info sessions, student panels and more!  To allow for distancing, registration is capped at 180 students (each with one guest).  Visitors must be vaccinated and remain masked while indoors. 

    Hope you can join us!  Register here!

  • Interviews

    Although interviews are not required as part of the application process, they are recommended. Interviews are evaluative, play a role in the admission process, and are a valuable opportunity for an exchange of information about both the candidate and the University.  

    Sign up for an interview here.

    • You do not need to have an application on file to request an interview. There are a wide range of times available including evenings and weekends between September 2021, and February 2022.
    • For transfer applicants, interviews are not required but highly encouraged. Interviews are offered Monday through Friday from June to the transfer deadline of November 15 for Spring Transfer or April 1 for Fall Transfer. Interviews for transfer applicants may be scheduled through Loreen Carta.
    • Interviews with Wesleyan alumni volunteers are viewed and evaluated in the same light as those conducted by our senior interviewers. Request an alumni interview.
  • WesChats

    WesChats are a great way for high school seniors to explore Wesleyan and learn more about academics and student life in a relaxed, informal conversation with a current student.

    WesChats are not formal admission interviews, but rather 30-minute video calls with one of our senior interviewers who will share some of their experiences at Wesleyan and answer your questions. These students can speak directly to your interests and describe campus culture and intellectual life. It is a great way to get a broad sense of student and residential life, academics, advising, research, faculty relationships, and the city of Middletown.

    No evaluation or record of the conversation is part of the admission application, and participating in a WesChat neither precludes nor necessitates an evaluative interview later in the process. 

    Sign up for a WesChat.

  • Chill&Chat

    Chill&Chats are an opportunity to connect prospective students with current Wesleyan students in a casual setting (no admission deans allowed!). These sessions are led by current Wesleyan students and are quite literally a chance to chill ‘n’ chat. See below for general conversation themes, prospective students are welcome to come to as many sessions as they would like. Join us on Tuesdays at 8:00 pm EDT to get excited about Wes!

    Register for Chill&Chats here.
