Planning Your Class Schedule

At the CORE session in June, faculty and staff will work with you to develop a preliminary class schedule for the fall, and help you begin the class registration process.

In the fall, you FYS advisor and preceptors will help you finalize your fall course schedule.

In the meantime, start browsing. Start exploring. Learn more about the Wheaton curriculum. We recommend starting with the sections on "The Foundations," "The Major" and "Connections."

Once you have familiarized yourself with the Wheaton curriculum, look at "Selecting Courses" and the online Course Schedule. When you are ready, complete a Course Planning Worksheet.

Please print out a copy of the Course Planning Worksheet and bring it with you to your CORE session in June.

If you cannot attend a June CORE session, it is still important to complete the Course Planning Worksheet. You will not be at a disadvantage in terms of course selection, and you will still have an opportunity to speak with advisors. 

Option #1:  There will be a CORE Express session scheduled in late June or early July for students in the region who were not able to attend an overnight CORE session. That date will be determined at the conclusion of June CORE. This session will only cover course registration and does not require an overnight stay.

Option #2:  After the conclusion of June CORE, students who attend neither June CORE nor the CORE Express session will schedule a telephone appointment with an academic dean. Students will be prompted by telephone and email to schedule an appointment with an advising dean. We will use your Wheaton email address to contact you.
