Documents

Students that apply to Wesleyan and indicate that they will not be seeking financial assistance will not be eligible to receive Wesleyan financial aid until after the student has been enrolled for one year/two full semesters at the university.  If an incoming student would like to apply for financial aid after he/she receives their admission letter, they are encouraged to contact the Financial Aid Office to discuss whether we are able to consider their special circumstances.
