( — May 9, 2013) Seattle, WA — Online College Courses, an online education information website, has selected Wellesley College as their College of the Month for May, 2013.

Erica Simpson, website manager for Online College Courses, explains, “Wellesley is the type of school that could be considered for almost any type of excellence award when you are evaluating top universities. As an institution, they rate amazingly well, plus they have a great student body and a terrific history.”

Located in Wellesley, Massachusetts, just outside of Boston, Wellesley College is a private liberal arts university that devotes itself to the education of about 2,400 young women students each year. 

“I think there is a definitely a role for schools that operate as women-only,” Simpson continued, “And I believe that some women really thrive and develop exponentially in that type of environment, more so than they would at a traditional college campus environment.”

Simpson noted that the tuition at Wellesley is high when compared to most other universities, “Yes, tuition is very high at Wellesley, but the actual amount that a student will eventually pay is highly variable, so I advise most prospective students to apply anyway and then determine the actual cost before making up their mind,” said Simpson. 

Online College Courses allows site visitors to browse various colleges and schools, enabling them to evaluate various course offerings, degrees and potential opportunities.

Simpson continued that if someone is interested in enrolling at Wellesley, they should honestly examine their chances of being accepted, but at the same time, not be afraid of being turned down either.  “A good student shouldn’t be afraid of rejection,” Simpson concluded, “She should fill out her enrollment application as best she can and send it in.  As long as you have a few other schools as backup, you should just go for it.”
