Rising high school juniors and seniors interested in attending Virginia Wesleyan University are invited to participate in this year's Virginia Private College Week from July 26-31, hosted by the Council of Independent Colleges in Virginia (CICV).

Prospective traditional and transfer students who visit in person or virtually will receive a $1,000 VWU Visit Grant, applicable to tuition upon enrollment at Virginia Wesleyan (Fall 2021 or later). Guests will also be entered into a CICV drawing to win one of five $100 Amazon gift cards.

Virginia Wesleyan, along with 22 other member institutions, will offer in-person and virtual information sessions about admission, financial aid, and academic programs. Enrollment counselors will also address common myths about the cost of a private college education. Those who take part in a visit either in-person or virtually at three or more participating colleges will receive three application fee waivers.

In-person sessions at Virginia Wesleyan will be held July 26-30 (Monday-Friday) at 9:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. On Monday, July 26, there will also be an evening session at 7:00 p.m. On Saturday, July 31, there will be one session held at 9:00 a.m.
