  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)

What Students Are Saying

3.55 Average Rating
North Carolina Wesleyan College is a great school if the student wants a great education. This school also offers one-on-one with the teachers meaning the teachers know you by name. Also, the teachers make sure the student learns the curriculum.
Monica from Alton, VA
North Carolina Wesleyan College is a great school for adults who live a busy lifestyle. I work two jobs, but since Wesleyan provides night classes, I am still able to work and go to school. I am truly honored to be a student at North Carolina Wesleyan College and I'm very thankful they provided me a chance to further my education.
