Campus Orientation & Registration Experience
Welcome to Wheaton! The Wheaton community is dedicated to making you, new students and families, welcome. With a large team of students, faculty and staff who love this college and all it stands for, we are here to orient and assist you in any way. We are also excited for you to join us for our new and improved orientation program, Campus Orientation & Registration Experience (CORE). The CORE program has been designed in a two part series in order for new students and families to better connect to all facets of Wheaton.
Spring Semester Admission (January 2017)
A small group of students are accepted or transfer in to Wheaton during January each year. This group of students is welcomed by student leaders, staff and faculty. Because it is such a small group we try to provide a unique introduction to Wheaton, while sharing resources and quickly acclimating you to campus.
Fall Semester Admission (August 2017)
The first part of the CORE program is in June, where new students (Class of 2021) will register in advance to attend workshops, advising sessions and register for classes. This program features an overnight component in order for you to spend quality time meeting faculty, staff, current students and other new students.
Continued summer outreach to our new students will happen via our OnBoard@Wheaton program. This program is administered through Academic Advising and host various components to help your during the summer months before your arrival. Watch fro more info!
The final part of the general CORE program is in August where all new students will move into their residence halls and officially become part of the Wheaton community. During these three days there will be a host of activities to introduce new students to the first year at Wheaton.
This is a very important transition in your life and we are here to make sure you succeed! CORE will help all new students feel connected and comfortable on their new campus.
