Top Ten List of Things You Should Know – or Maybe You Just Forgot!

  1. The Wheaton webpage has a comprehensive Academic Calendar. This means that you never have to miss a deadline.
  2. You can plan for your final exams when you pre-register. From the on-line Course Schedule, click on the letter next to the course under the heading EXAM; the pre-scheduled final exam is posted there. This means that you may know your final exam schedule in the prior semester.
  3. You have access to your complete academic transcript AND a degree audit (a.k.a CAPP audit) 24/7. This means that you should never be in the dark about your class schedule, your final grades, your transfer work, or where you stand relative to your degree requirements.
  4. There is a deadline for submitting a self-designed Connection proposal (check the calendar). This means that you can plan your strategy for developing a self-designed Connection and not miss the deadline.
  5. There is no published deadline for declaring an existing Connection. But we want you to tell us which Connection you plan to complete. This means that you can better plan your graduation requirements.
  6. The Registrar and Associate Registrar communicate with you via your Wheaton email account. These communications are typically pretty important. This means that you shouldn’t ignore them.
  7. You can request an official transcript 24/7 using our on-line “Transcripts on Demand” service available through insideWheaton. This includes requests for electronic transcripts. This means that you have the convenience of ordering an official paper or electronic transcript whenever you need one . . . even after you graduate.
  8. We invite/require rising seniors to meet with a staff person in the Office of the Registrar to review their CAPP audit in the April prior to the senior year to insure that they are aware of any deficiencies or problem. This means that we are actively working with you to graduate on schedule.
  9. We use a calculation to determine how much credit you will receive when we accept transfer work. This means that you should obtain the approval for the course ahead of time and if you need help calculating the amount of credit, you should stop in to the Office of the Registrar.
  10. We have made these tools and services as well as many forms available to you on-line to give you the convenience of having this information at your fingertips. This does not mean that we don’t want to see you in the office. If you have questions concerning your academic record, a process, your status, or anything else, the staff in the Office of the Registrar is happy to talk with you.
