students studying in the classroom

Welcome to the Wellesley application process! 

(It's free, so why not?)

We are interested in who you are and how you think, and in assisting you through this process.

We hope you'll find the college application process to be an enjoyable educational journey in its own right. We expect that your application and supporting credentials will convey to us your academic abilities and intellectual accomplishments, as well as your personal achievements and aspirations.

In short, to apply, you must complete the Common Application. It's free to apply! We want everyone, regardless of ability to pay, to feel they can apply.  

Please note: We will also be accepting the Coalition Application beginning in the summer of 2017.
