Join our supportive community of academically-driven students for an enriched college experience. You’ll engage and learn with like-minded, high-achieving students and distinguished faculty across all disciplines. The Wheaton College Honors Program will challenge, inspire and motivate you to achieve your academic and personal goals.


Incoming students are invited to join the Honors Program based on previous academic rigor, extra-curricular activities and volunteer experiences. Eligible students are automatically admitted to the program and notified in their Wheaton College acceptance letter.

We believe all students develop passions and goals at their own pace. Current students are also eligible to join the Honors Program based on their first-year achievements at Wheaton.
