Wabash College

College Degree Finder

In the past, coed colleges used to be an oddity. Not anymore. Now coed colleges are the norm and gender specific colleges are the oddity. Wabash College is one of only a handful of men’s colleges left in the United States. However, where most of the remaining men’s colleges have some sort of religious affiliation, Wabash College doesn’t. Wabash is simply a no-nonsense higher education institution that takes learning seriously. Its academics are geared towards preparing its male students for career success, and many enter the work force upon completion of their bachelor’s degree. Those who don’t immediately enter the workforce often go onto pursue graduate degrees in medicine, law, or another professional field.

In addition to a rigorous academic program designed to prepare highly trained and competent career professionals, Wabash offers its students a variety of extracurricular programs in business leadership and immersion learning to prepare them more real-world experience.

Many students at Wabash College receive financial aid in the form of federal grants, Pell grants, scholarships and other loan programs. Application deadlines for Wabash College vary depending on the type of application. Regular application deadlines for the next school year are on January 15. Early Decision applications are due on December 1 and Early Decision applications must be received by the college no later than November 1.
