      3000 Frederica Street
      Owensboro, KY 42301
    • The Office of Admissions reserves the right to request additional information or a personal interview.



  • Step 3: Send ACT or SAT Scores

    • Request that your scores be sent to school code 1518 for ACT or 1369 for SATIf your scores are on your transcript, we consider those to be official.


  • Step 4: Send TOEFL Scores

    • Kentucky Wesleyan College requires English proficiency, so students should take the TOEFL and have scores sent to us. You must have a minimum score of 520 (paper based), 70 (internet based) or 200 (computer based).

      If you are from an English-speaking country, the TOEFL requirement is waived. However, you will be required to submit a 500 word essay to prove your English proficiency.

      If your SAT score is exceptional, Kentucky Wesleyan College may waive the TOEFL requirement.



  • Step 5: Provide Proof of Ability to Pay

    • Because International students are not eligible for federal or state aid, Kentucky Wesleyan College needs proof that students can pay for tuition, room, board and fees (about $33,000 USD).

      This can be shown with bank account statements sent to Kentucky Wesleyan College from your bank.

      Upon being granted admission to the college, international students are required to submit a $500 tuition deposit and an additional $100 housing deposit for residential students.  Once the student’s deposit is received, Kentucky Wesleyan College will issue the student an I-20 immigration form.
