TUITION AND MANDATORY FEES FOR 2017-18

Wesleyan is committed to enrolling a diverse student body - including those from wide-ranging economic backgrounds.  We meet the full demonstrated need of admitted students, making it possible to attend Wesleyan regardless of one's financial circumstances. 

Wesleyan is committed to reining in growth in the cost of attending over time. The University recently introduced a three-year option to make it possible for students to graduate in six semesters, with summer academic work.  This accelerated course of study is not for everyone, but it can save families about $50,000. 

A Wesleyan education can be surprisingly affordable. For more information, see our financial aid website.
