Permanent residents of Norton (must have valid ID with Norton address) who are high school seniors or older and who are not degree students at Wheaton are eligible to take one course for academic credit per semester, for an overall maximum of four courses for a reduced rate of $150 per course. Norton residents may also audit courses (no credit granted) for a fee of $15.

The first step in the process of taking a class is to seek faculty permission for the class one wishes to take. A detailed schedule for each semester can be found here. Once permission is granted (via an e-mail or a signed Course Exception Card found in the Office of the Registrar), one must come to the Office of the Registrar and fill out some forms so that a student record can be created and registration is complete.
