Cost & Financial Aid

A Wesley education can open so many doors. Lead to so many opportunities. Result in truly great things. So when we make the decision to accept a student, it’s because we feel they belong here—and we’ll do everything in our power to make sure cost isn’t an issue.

That’s why we’re committed to helping every admitted student afford Wesley through scholarships, loans, grants, and more. We award nearly $9 million in institutionally funded financial aid every year—and we remind current students they can continue to apply for scholarships even after they begin. Read on…

    Perkins Loan

    Available to eligible students, this loan carries a 5 percent interest rate and does not have to be repaid while the student is enrolled at least half-time (6 credit hours).

    Unlike a loan, Pell Grants don’t have to be repaid. Amounts change each year; the maximum Federal Pell Grant award for the 2015-16 award year is $5,775.

  • Institutional Aid

    Admissions Scholarships

    Awarded by the Office of Admissions to new students admitted to Wesley College, these scholarships carry specific cumulative grade point average requirements for subsequent renewal.

    Wesley Need-Based Grant

    This is awarded to eligible students, in conjunction with other institutional scholarships and grants, who complete the FAFSA and demonstrate financial need as determined by Wesley College.

    Monthly Payment Plans

    For a small enrollment fee, families may budget the cost of tuition and on-campus room and board in monthly installment plans—with no interest charged on balances paid. Or, payments can be made in full each semester by cash, check, money order, credit, or debit card. For more information, contact the Business/Finance Office at 302.736.2331.

  • Work Study

    Federal Work Study (FWS)

    This allows students to work on and off campus, earning a specific award amount over a semester or academic year (two semesters). At Wesley, a student awarded FWS may have their earnings applied to any outstanding balance owed for tuition, room, and board.

    Work-Ship Programs

    Students not awarded Federal Work Study may be considered for this student work program funded directly by Wesley College. For application information and work program job postings, please contact the Office of Student Financial Planning.

  • Private Loans

    Alternative Loans

    Also referred to as private loans, these loans are offered by banks or lending institutions to creditworthy applicants. Most are borrowed in the student’s name, but some students may only be eligible with a creditworthy co-signer. For help comparing lenders and student loans, visit
