Live Local? Study Local!

High school juniors and seniors who live within commuting distance of Wesleyan are welcome to apply to the residential program for the full PreCollege Study cohort experience, but they may also choose to enroll in courses held during Session I and Session II. Local students can take one or more courses during the Summer Session period. All summer session courses are offered for full college credit, and are taught in small seminars. Even biology and chemistry - which at some universities may have hundreds of students in class - are limited to no more than 20 participants. Most classes are even smaller. 

Wesleyan Summer Session students receive individualized attention from faculty and develop the supportive intellectual bonds with professors and fellow students that exemplify the Wesleyan experience. The emphasis on individual academic inquiry and research is enhanced by the outstanding resources and facilities available at Wesleyan. 

Summer Session tuition for 2018 is $3,260 per course.
