Program Fees

Wilderness Track: $750

The fee covers room, board, activities at HoneyRock, course credit, and transportation (van pick-up at O’Hare International and Midway airports and coach bus transportation to and from HoneyRock). Participants will be responsible for purchasing two course texts. The course texts can be purchased online from the Wheaton College Bookstore (see below). A $100 non-refundable deposit is required to reserve your spot, which is due during online registration. The remaining program fee balance will be charged to each student’s fall semester bill.

Students will not be charged additional tuition for this course. The cost for these two hours of credit is covered by the fall semester tuition payment, so participants receive a $2000 program for the cost of the program fee listed. Wheaton Passage is a great way to maximize your investment.

Course Texts:
Students must purchase two text books for the course. Embracing the Love of God by James Bryan Smith (either edition) and the Wheaton Passage Workbook. These texts can be purchased online or in person (after June 1) from the Wheaton College Bookstore >>.  


Students will be enrolled in CE 131: Introduction to Spiritual Formation and will receive 2 hours of credit. Prior, to their time at HoneyRock, students will complete multiple reading and writing assignments. Throughout the course, students will participate in many group experiences and discussions. Once on campus, students will be expected to write a final paper and participate in two group meetings.

We know you’ve already been a freshman, so we have made some modifications within Wheaton Passage that are geared toward you and your fellow transfers. Depending on the number of transfers, you will be in a small group with other transfers and your activities and discussions will be relevant to you and your experiences. You will make connections and share experiences with other transfers, while getting to know the other incoming students as well.

International Students

Wheaton Passage has been designed to work in conjunction with TCK/MK Orientation so you don’t have to choose one or the other. You can come be a part of Wheaton Passage and still be down on the Wheaton campus in time for your TCK/MK orientation activities.


Wheaton Passage enrollment is limited.
