You’re ready to navigate the college application process. Don’t panic. We’re here to help.
We make it easy to apply by offering freshman applicants a choice of the Wheaton First-Year Application or the Common Application (both applications will be available in August). If you’d like to be notified when the applications are available, please let us know. Each application is valued equally by the Admission Committee; please use whichever application is easiest for you. Transfer applicants should apply using the Common Application.
The application fee is $60 and may be paid online as part of the application process or by personal check, made payable to Wheaton College. If the fee is a burden that will prevent you from applying, please see your guidance counselor to inquire about a Waiver or indicate that it is a hardship when you submit your application.
If you have questions after looking through our website (or if you just prefer human contact), send us an email or call 508-286-8251.
Don’t forget these important admission application dates:
Please note: All deadlines are by 11:59 p.m. in the time zone from which you are submitting the application.
