  • An application for admission. Wesleyan accepts applications on-line (free of charge).
  • An official transcript from each institution attended showing all credits attempted at all post-secondary institutions attended.
  • A high school transcript certifying graduation and showing courses pursued and grades earned and SAT or ACT scores, if the cumulative grade point average is less than 2.5 in college.

Wesleyan will accept transfer credit courses compatible with its academic program. Grades and hours earned will count toward graduation. The College accepts no more than 60 semester hours of credit from a junior or community college. Students coming from a four-year institution must:

  • Earn a minimum of 120 semester hours of credit, at least 30 of which must be earned in residence.
  • Complete the general studies curriculum and an academic major as described in the Academic Catalog in effect at the time the student enters the College.
  • Achieve a 'C' average (2.0 grade point average) in all college work attempted at Wesleyan, and in each major and minor field of study.

Students who transfer to Wesleyan with an associate degree from a regionally accredited community or junior college may be admitted with the degree credited as fulfilling Wesleyan’s general studies requirements when the total educational background, including high school records, shows compatibility with Wesleyan’s general studies requirements. Deficiencies in general studies requirements, as determined by the Admission and Academic Standing Council, must be satisfied after enrollment at Wesleyan.

West Virginia Wesleyan College accepts transfer credit from regionally accredited colleges and universities in the United States, as well as from officially recognized colleges and universities from other countries. Credit earned in the arts, letters, and sciences, and selected professional disciplines are eligible for transfer to Wesleyan. Credit may be accepted by special arrangement from a non-accredited institution; however, credit will not be posted to the students permanent record until the student has completed an academic year of work at Wesleyan with an average grade of 'C' (2.0). The Admission and Academic Standing Council may require examinations to demonstrate proficiency in work taken at non-accredited institutions. The Office of the Registrar is responsible for the evaluation and acceptance of transfer credit. Wesleyan students may complete work toward a Wesleyan degree at another institution. However, they must receive approval for specific courses prior to enrolling in them to guarantee that they will be accepted by the College and will satisfy intended degree requirements. No more then 60 semester hours of credit may be transferred from a junior or community college.
