At this time, Wesleyan is moving forward with the planning of this year’s Fall Open House Travel Assistance Program (TAP). The University will continue to monitor the public health situation on the novel strain of coronavirus and will update applicants should any changes occur. Please check this page periodically for updates regarding TAP.


Fall Open House Transportation Assistance Program

The Wesleyan University Office of Admission funds the Transportation Assistance Program (TAP), which provides an all-expenses-paid visit to campus (including transportation, accommodations and meals) for a select number of high school seniors interested in participating in one of our annual Open House Programs. 

During the visit, students will have the opportunity to visit classes, attend panel discussions, spend the night with a current student, speak with faculty, and explore the campus community.

If you are interested in the Transportation Assistance Program, the online application and supporting materials must be submitted by the appropriate deadlines.
  • Dates & Deadlines.

    All deadlines for Fall 2019 Open Houses have passed.


    Columbus Day Open House October 13-14, 2019
        Priority Deadline - June 28
        Regular Deadline - September 6

    Veterans Day Open House November 10-11, 2019
        Priority Deadline - June 28
        Regular Deadline - October 8

    While the Open House Program is open to all, the number of students awarded travel grants is limited, so a timely response will be taken into consideration along with background and interest in Wesleyan.

    After you receive notification from Wesleyan you will have 5 days to respond and either accept or decline our offer.  If you accept, at that time you must also submit the Medical Permission Form and Statement of Financial Responsibility.

    We will book all travel for you and email your itinerary.  You must look over your itinerary and let us know immediately if changes need to be made.

    All details of your trip (plane, bus, train, shuttle) will be communicated through email after your tickets are confirmed.

    Tickets are nonrefundable.  Should you need to cancel your trip after tickets are already booked, you will be responsible for covering the cost of the ticket.
