Support for Student Activism

Wheaton College encourages students to use their voices to speak out against racism and social injustices. As a result, your admission to Wheaton will not be affected in any way by disciplinary actions associated with participation in peaceful protests or other means of respectful freedom of expression.

Wheaton College is committed to principles of equal opportunity in admission of students, its educational programs and employment.


Admission to Wheaton is selective. However, we consider many things including academic achievement, writing ability, difficulty of high school curriculum and co-curricular achievement. So, don’t just apply. Show us who you really are. What makes you special and what drives you? Tell us your story!
