NCWC Adult and Professional Studies

Welcome to NCWC

A successful college career starts with a strong foundation. NC Wesleyan was founded in 1956 in Rocky Mount, North Carolina, by the Methodist church. In 2015 and 2016, Wesleyan was recognized as the fastest growing private college in North Carolina by NC Independent Colleges & Universities, and we are working to keep that pace. We are growing our student population, our faculty and curriculum, and our athletic programs. You can believe … there’s something for you today at NC Wesleyan.

About NCWC Adult Studies

Our nonresidential baccalaureate degree programs are designed to meet the educational needs of adult learners. The Office of Adult & Professional Studies allows mature women and men to tailor their degree to meet personal, career, and life goals. Because mature adults are highly motivated and capable of self-directed learning, adult learners can take advantage of 5-week, 8-week, hybrid, and online classes, as well as opportunities for earning credit through alternative options such as CLEP and DSST testing.  Whether you want to be more marketable in your organization, career, or life in general get the competitive advantage with NC Wesleyan’s Adult Studies degree programs.
