We hope this information is helpful to you as you arrange for your new educational experience. You are encouraged to re-read it and carefully note the items that pertain to your situation. Please pay careful attention to your requirements and obligations. To summarize:
- Make sure your travel documents are in order. Do not finalize your arrangements until you have your passport, Certificate of Eligibility, and visa stamp. You may enter the United States only if your Certificate of Eligibility is endorsed to the institution in which you intend to enroll.
- Take care of your financial obligations and arrange for proper monetary transfer. Carefully review requirements for obtaining foreign exchange. Make sure you have adequate funds.
- Plan to arrive on campus on the date designated.
- Be prepared to discuss your academic plans and interests. Do not rely on others to plan your program for you, but at the same time d not register for classes without seeing an advisor during the orientation program.
If you do not plan to enroll at Wheaton College in the semester for which you have been admitted, return the Certificate of Eligibility to the Office of International Student Services and notify the Admissions Office of your decision.
Again, we wish you a warm welcome to Wheaton College. If you arrive on campus after working hours (after 4 pm) and need emergency assistance, please call the Wheaton College Public Safety Office at 630-752-5911.
