INFORMATION SESSIONS

Join an admission dean and a current student for a one hour discussion on the distinguishing elements of the Wesleyan experience, an overview of the admission process, and an introduction to financial aid at Wesleyan.  Information sessions are offered from mid-February through December 7, 2019 on:

  • Monday through Friday, at 10:30am and 2:00pm.

In light of the fact that class visits are not available on Saturdays, our Saturday information sessions are tailored a bit differently and feature different faculty members as well as a current student.  You'll be able to hear directly from members of our community while also gaining a brief introduction to the admission and financial aid processes at Wesleyan.  For the fall semester for 2019, we offer a Saturday information session on:

  • Saturdays, September 7 through December 7, at 10:00am. 

TOURS

Student-led tours are offered three times each weekday and once on both Saturday and Sunday.  Tours last approximately 75 minutes and are available:  

  • Monday through Friday, at 9:00am, 12:00pm, and 3:00pm
  • Saturday, at either 11:00am, 12:00pm, or 1:00pm (Note: please confirm time on our admission calendar as Saturday tour times vary seasonally.)
  • Sunday at 12:00pm

GROUP VISITS

We request that groups over 10 people notify our office ahead of time.  Our maximum capacity for groups is 60 people during the academic year and 35 people during the summer.  Due to high demand, we are unable to accommodate middle school tour groups.  To schedule a group visit, please click here (you will receive a confirmation email from our staff shortly to confirm your visit).

**Please note that tours, information sessions and group visits may run on a reduced schedule during holidays, exams, school breaks and during academic transition periods.  Please be certain to register in advance of your visit and confirm details of your visit.**
