    • Our Online Program Application is quick, easy, and completely free to submit.
  • Submit your official transcripts.
    • All secondary school and college/university level transcripts must be submitted for review. The transcripts must be official and in the student’s native language.  Students will also need to provide another official transcript that has been translated into English by their secondary school or college/university.  Kentucky Wesleyan College recommends World Education Services (WES).  Please visit the WES website at wes.org for details and instructions and list Kentucky Wesleyan College as the receiving institution. Photocopies, scanned images or faxes will not be accepted.
    • College/university transcripts from institutions outside of the United States will be evaluated for transfer credit.  To insure that you receive the most transfer credit possible, they may choose to have your transcripts evaluated by a professional credential evaluation agency.  Kentucky Wesleyan College recommends World Education Services (WES).  Please visit the WES website at wes.orgfor details and instructions and list Kentucky Wesleyan College as the receiving institution.
  • All official transcripts (secondary and post-secondary) must be submitted to:

  • If you have not earned post-secondary credits, you will submit your ACT or SAT
      • A minimum ACT score of 19 or minimum SAT score of 990 is needed for admission to Kentucky Wesleyan College. KWC’s ACT code is 1518 and SAT code is 1369. If your score is printed on your high school transcript, we consider it to be your official score.
  • Submit English Proficiency scores.
    • International students are required to submit an exam score that meets Wesleyan’s minimum English proficiency requirement. Exception: International students whose primary and secondary education took place in Australia, Canada (English-speaking provinces), United Kingdom, Ireland, New Zealand, or the U.S. are exempt from this requirement; however, you will be required to submit a 500-word essay to prove your English proficiency. Students born in one of these countries yet educated elsewhere are still required to satisfy the English proficiency requirement. We accept official TOEFL results. The minimum TOEFL score of 70 (iBT) or 520 (paper-based) is required for admissions to Kentucky Wesleyan College.
  • Submit your tuition deposit.
    • Once you have submitted all official documentation, an admission decision will be made and you will be notified promptly. At this time, you will submit a tuition deposit to activate your student records. The $500 USD tuition deposit will be applied to your first tuition bill. Your deposit will be submitted online https://kwc.edu/deposit/or by contacting the cashier’s office at (270) 852-3108 or cashier@kwc.edu.
  • Confirm your schedule for the upcoming semester.
    • An advisor will register you for the courses needed to receive your bachelor’s degree from Kentucky Wesleyan College. The cost of tuition or regular fees is the same for all Kentucky Wesleyan Online Degree students, with your textbooks being an additional cost. Full-time online students take two 3-credit-hour courses every 7-week term.
  • Sign the Financial Responsibility Form.
    • Payment for each course is due the first day of the course. If a student owes a balance, a 1% financial charge is added at the end of the month. At this time, we do not ask for any “ability to pay” documentation. You are expected to have a $0 balance before starting courses for your next term.
  • IT Department will send log-in credentials and directions to access online learning resources to the email address on file.

Please feel free to ask questions.
