Spring 2014 Admitted Student Checklist

Menu

Welcome to Wheaton! The days and months ahead are sure to be filled with new beginnings as you enter life at Wheaton. In order to make your transition to “Wheaton student” as smooth as possible, we need to make sure you submit all of the necessary information before coming to campus in the fall.

If you plan to enroll at Wheaton, you need to submit the following required items before enrolling:

  • An advance deposit of $300, along with the enrollment confirmation form, is due by the date indicated on your acceptance letter. Since the deposit reserves your place, your acceptance may be canceled if we do not receive it by the due date. The deposit is non-refundable. Upon enrollment, the deposit will be credited to your tuition.
  • A final college transcript if you are enrolled in any college courses. All coursework must be completed satisfactorily.

Students are encouraged to apply for financial aid and housing before they submit their deposit and enrollment confirmation form.
