Because of ongoing local and global concerns about the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), Wheaton College officials have decided to cancel most in-person Admission programs for now. This includes preview days, information sessions, open houses, on-campus interviews and informal visits. We have resumed in-person on-campus tours on a limited basis.

Tour registration is available here.

Please check back to this page for updates. For now, we encourage prospective students to attend one of our virtual information sessions or open houses, which include a video tour of campus.

We’ve developed ways for you to experience Wheaton virtually, to assist you and your family as you make important decisions about college. If there is something specific you’d like to see or learn about virtually, please let us know: Call 508-286-8251 or email
