Wheaton College Norton, Massachusetts


Early Decision/Early Action

Early Decision

If Wheaton is your first choice college, you may wish to apply as an Early Decision 1 or Early Decision 2 (ED 1 or ED 2) candidate.

Wheaton's ED 1 and ED 2 plans are binding agreements; you will be expected to enroll at Wheaton if you are admitted and withdraw all applications you have initiated at other colleges. Note that you, your high school counselor and a parent/guardian also must sign the Early Decision Agreement form, which is part of the Wheaton Freshman Application or at the Common Application Web site.

The deadlines and requirements for financial aid vary based upon application plan and according to whether or not you are a U.S. citizen or permanent resident. Please visit our financial aid website for details.

Early Action
If you're not ready to commit to Early Decision admission, but would like your admission decision before April 1, Early Action (EA) is a great option. Students admitted through EA have until May 1 to accept their Wheaton offer of admission.
