You’re ready for The Wesleyan Way.

We review the whole person when making admissions decisions.  However, among the most important factors in the admissions decision is the academic record—courses taken and performance. Additionally, it is important that we learn more about leadership roles, extracurricular and service-related activities, talents, and ways you plan to contribute positively to the campus community through your application. By exploring Kentucky Wesleyan, we believe you are a student who will take full advantage of all the resources available to stretch your limits and make a positive difference in the world through your major focus area and career.

What are the application requirements?

The Kentucky Wesleyan College application is the best way for us to get to know you, your goals and your aspirations.  We want to know about your academic record and what you have achieved in your prior academic experiences, both in school and outside of school. For first-year, full-time students, admission decisions are currently test-optional. Students may still choose to submit a test score to be considered for admission. For transfers, previous college work is the primary factor, followed by high school performance and SAT or ACT scores.
