Wellesley to accept future Coalition Application
Wellesley is among the diverse coalition of colleges and universities nationwide that in the future will also accept the new Coalition Application. It will not replace the Common Application or the QuestBridge Application at Wellesley; it will simply provide applicants with an additional option. 

"Best College Values"
Finance publisher Kiplinger named Wellesley #1 in Massachusetts and #3 nationally in its ranking of "Best College Values." They ranked 100 schools, considering factors including lowest sticker price, need-based aid (grants, but not loans), low average debt, and low number of students who borrow. See article.
