We will nurture their

Moms, Dads, grandparents, older siblings…whoever you are, if you’re looking out for the best interests of a student who is eager to expand their knowledge and determined to do well, you want to be sure they choose the right college for them. One that will nurture their growth, cultivate their leadership skills, and set them up for a career they can be proud of. (Not to mention, one that offers plenty of financial aid opportunities.) Welcome to Wesley.


With a commitment to student-centered learning, Wesley’s dedicated faculty teaches the subjects that are in demand by employers, from accounting and nursing to business, kinesiology, and beyond. Students “learn while doing” through internships in Dover and along the I-95 corridor, and solve real-life problems in small, hands-on classes.

Life @ Wesley

Families always ask our tour guides about security, campus living, and social events. The truth is, our students feel safe at all times—whether they’re running down to Spring Lake or hanging out on campus. They love our suite-style dorms, and there’s always, always something to do.

Our personal visit with Coach Mike Drass sealed the deal. Nancy and I left that meeting saying Coach Drass gets what it feels like to be a parent with a student starting a new journey… The Putman family made the right choice in choosing Wesley College.

How Will You Make Sure My Student Succeeds?

When we say Wesley offers a transformational experience, we mean it. Here are just a few ways we broaden students’ horizons and hold them to the high standards we know they can exceed. To learn more about additional ways we encourage student growth, call us at 302.736.2400.

  • Academic Advising

    All full-time students entering Wesley are assigned an academic advisor to assist them in transitioning to the college experience.

  • Accountability

    When a student is unexpectedly absent from a class, his or her professor will find out what happened. Our faculty members are passionate about more than just their topic; they’re dedicated to their students’ growth and future.

  • Leadership Development Programs

    Wesley’s philosophy on leadership is that leaders are made, not born. Leadership roles at Wesley take all kinds of shapes—orientation leaders, RAs, Executive Board members, athletic team captains, and more.

  • Scholars Day

    An annual tradition that the entire Wesley community looks forward to every year, Scholars Day is an event comprised of oral and poster presentations by students on topics of their choosing. It’s anyone’s chance to present to their peers and faculty, and receive a certificate and T-shirt at the reception that follows.

  • Summer Advantage

    To help students stay on track or get ahead and graduate early, Wesley offers summer courses for a low tuition rate.

Cost & Financial Aid

Wesley is committed to affordability. Every year, 98 percent of full-time students receive financial aid in the form of scholarships, institutional grants, federal and state grants, student loans, work-study, and on-campus employment.
