PreCollege Study at Wesleyan University:  
Two ways to participate

Residential Scholars

Wesleyan University offers a special 5-week college immersion opportunity for a select group of students during Summer Session II (June 30-August 2). Wesleyan PreCollege Residential Scholars take one of two intensive writing courses and an elective course in their area of interest. Beyond the classroom, students can participate in Social Justice Leadership training and benefit from faculty mentorship. Additional activities will be organized by Residential Advisors. Space in the PreCollege Study residential program is limited to 20 Residential Scholars. Applications open on December 1, 2017 and will be reviewed on a rolling basis beginning February 14, 2018 until all spots in the program have been filled. Students are encouraged to apply early as applications will only be considered until all spaces have been taken. You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting our Residential Scholars page. 

Local Students

Students who live locally can take a course or two during Summer Session I and Summer Session II. Courses meet daily and the homework expectation is high, so it is essential that students are able to attend all class meetings. Visit our Local Students page to learn more about PreCollege Study for commuters.
