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.
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 email@example.com.

Results that Matter
Just six months after graduation, 97 percent of Wheaton alumni in the six most recent classes have secured full- or part-time employment, are pursuing graduate/professional degrees or are gaining career experience through internships, fellowships or service opportunities.
Innovative New Curriculum
Our new Compass curriculum integrates greater flexibility to explore interests outside of a student’s specific major (more than 100 majors and minors offered at Wheaton), earn stacked mini-credentials that fuse coursework with internships, and receive ongoing, highly-focused mentoring.
Over the last five years, Wheaton College has increased aid from $39 million to close to $60 million and continues to increase aid to help make college more affordable.
