About SWU

For more than 100 years, Southern Wesleyan University in Charleston, South Carolina, has been providing its small, Christian student body with biblically oriented academics and college life. Today, Southern Wesleyan also offers opportunities for adult learners as well.

Southern Wesleyan’s 42 programs of study feature majors in the liberal and performing arts, sciences, and such professional fields as healthcare.

Spiritual life is a crucial part of the Southern Wesleyan experience, both in the classroom and beyond where students may participate in:

  • Chapel services
  • Ministry groups
  • Bible study groups
  • Accountability groups
  • Fellowship

In addition to its traditional college programs, Southern Wesleyan also has a distinctive program for adult learners who wish to earn their bachelor’s degree in an accelerated period of time.

Traditional freshmen applicants should have taken four years of high school English and two years of science, social studies and math. Admissions also require a minimum GPA of 2.3 and a minimum SAT score of 860 or ACT score of 18. In addition to transcripts and test scores, applicants will need to submit an application with a fee.

Financial aid awards are divided into two categories. Need-based aid consists of federal aid awards like Pell grants, FSEOG grants and loans. There are also academic awards such as the Life Scholarship, which covers a substantial portion of tuition and requires a minimum grade point average of 3.0, a minimum SAT of 1100 or an ACT score of at least 24. There is also a tuition grant, which covers partial tuition and is designed for Education majors who plan to teach in understaffed schools.
