Wesleyan College has one of the most flexible transfer credit policies in the country.

We will work with you early in the process to identify your transferable credits. In general, transfer credits must come from an accredited institution, be from degree-level coursework, and have a grade of “C” or higher.    

  • If you studied at a regionally accredited community college, you may transfer and apply up to 60 credits.
  • If you studied at a regionally accredited four-year institution, you may transfer and apply up to 90 credits.
  • If you have studied at more than one institution, we can accept your credits, provided the institutions are regionally accredited.
  • If you previously earned an Associate's degree at a regionally accredited college, you do not have to take additional general education courses at Wesleyan College to earn your bachelor's degree. 
  • When you apply, you will receive a full transfer credit evaluation. Your academic evaluation will show where your previously earned credit will fit into your degree and show what courses you have left to take. See listing of courses that will transfer to Wesleyan.

Robyn Nickerson '21

Robyn Nickerson '21 is an online business administration major. 

After a 9-year hiatus from her education, Robyn found Wesleyan's online degree program to complete her degree. The availability of her professors and the flexibility of the program has given Robyn the opportunity to complete her degree.

"Being a full-time mother of a three-year-old and a five-year-old, a full-time employee, and a full-time student seems impossible to most. Wesleyan has made it possible for me and I am proud to be a part of the Wesleyan family."

Aleah McClendon '21

Senior Aleah McClendon transferred to Wesleyan in the fall of 2018 in search of a small class environment where she "wouldn't get lost in the shuffle."

Aleah believes having professors that saw her potential has contributed to her success at Wesleyan.

"Dr. Bray's ethics class my first semester changed the trajectory of my college experience. It made me think deeper about my race, gender, and the world around me. It allowed me to ask the questions I couldn't imagine on my own and I will continue doing that for the rest of my life."

Aleah has direct advice for other transfer students at Wesleyan; get involved! "I made the mistake during my first college experience of going home every weekend and staying in my room. There is so much to do here at Wesleyan!"

Aleah is a resident advisor, chancellor of Honor Court, Black Student Alliance vice president, Campus Activities Board vice president, philosophy, religious studies, and social change major ambassador, and Philosophy Student of the Year 2020.

Her last piece of advice comes from her mother; "you only get out of college what you put in. Reach for the moon because even if you miss, you will land amongst the stars."

Amber Kazee '20

Amber Kazee '20 is a nursing major.

"After talking to friends from different nursing schools, I knew that Wesleyan’s nursing program would be a great fit for me. I like being in a program where the professors know you by name and are always willing to help you succeed."


Choose between 3 different degree programs: bachelor of arts, bachelor of fine arts, or bachelor of science in nursing.

Kametrea West
Transfer Student

I transferred to Wesleyan because I knew that it would be a good fit for me. Spending time at a big university kept me distracted from my studies. Coming here, I’ve been able to focus and have fun!
