Wesleyan University High School Scholars Program

The Wesleyan University High School Scholars Program offers outstanding high school juniors and seniors the opportunity to take one Wesleyan University course per semester for credit, tuition-free. This is an opportunity for students to pursue advanced coursework not available at their high school and experience the intellectual rigors and stimulating dialogue that commonly take place in Wesleyan classrooms and is trademark of a Wesleyan liberal arts education.

To apply, students should have previously completed demanding coursework (AP, IB, Dual Enrollment, or maximum rigor offered by their high school) and have performed at a high level.  Students admitted to the program are expected to provide their own transportation to and from Wesleyan University and fulfill all requirements of the Wesleyan course they are enrolled in.

Interested students are asked to contact their counselor for more information.
