Wesleyan University offers the opportunity to take undergraduate courses on a non-degree basis as a Community Scholar during the fall and spring semesters. 

Community Scholars live within a commuting distance from the University and take courses on a per-credit, non-degree basis. Individuals accepted for this category may enroll in up to four courses per semester with the instructor's approval as long as their enrollment does not displace a degree-seeking student. Students wishing to participate as Community Scholars for more than one term should write to nondegree@wesleyan.edu to discuss continuation.

Housing and meal plans are not currently available to Community Scholars.
