Wheaton College is closely monitoring the ongoing COVID-19 health crisis and after careful consideration has decided to now offer limited on-campus tours for prospective students. While we have developed a robust offering of virtual visit opportunities, we also encourage all eligible visitors to see our beautiful campus in-person at one of our scheduled tours. Though the tour will be limited to campus grounds only (no entry into buildings), we will be providing visual resources of the interior of each building on the tour. Registration for on-campus visits will only be available to rising seniors (high school class of 2021) at this time.
Current protocols include:
- Pre-registration is required with no exceptions. Walk-in appointments are not allowed.
- No more than one family (maximum 3 total guests) are allowed on each tour.
- All visitors are required to follow college health and safety protocols and Commonwealth of Massachusetts guidance, including wearing a mask or face covering at all times while on campus.
- All registered visitors are also required to complete a symptoms acknowledgement form prior to arrival on campus. Visitors will not be allowed to participate in the tour if they have not completed the acknowledgement form attesting that they are not symptomatic. This form will be emailed to registered visitors one day in advance of the visit. All guests visiting campus are required to complete the acknowledgement form.
- Wheaton College is following travel order guidance from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts that asks visitors to refrain from visiting if they have left their home within 14 days of their scheduled visit to campus. Visitors will be asked to attest that they are not arriving from a high-risk state prior to their campus visit, unless they have quarantined for 14 days prior to their scheduled visit. This includes any returning Massachusetts residents from travel in high-risk states. An exemption to this order is granted to individuals entering Massachusetts from a lower risk state designated by the Department of Public Health (DPH).
