Many colleges have a series of general education requirements. Wheaton’s Compass Curriculum and its embedded Mentored Academic Pathways (MAP) give you the freedom and flexibility to create your own unique academic journey. Whether you are a first-year or transfer student, building your first schedule is easy. You’ll work with faculty and staff advisors who will help you customize your academic schedule to align with your goals.

Building Your First Schedule

Prior to your arrival on campus, your Student Success Advisor will reach out via your Wheaton email. Together, you’ll discuss your personal and career interests, review course options, discuss AP or transfer credits, or any other questions you may have. Then, join us at Orientation to finalize your schedule and connect with our community.
