Monday, June 15-Thursday, June 18, 2020

This year, Summer Orientation for first year students will be held as a comprehensive online program designed to introduce new students and their families to Wheaton and to each other.

Through a series of four virtual sessions, students will join Orientation Leaders who will guide students through life at Wheaton, planning their academics, class selection and getting to know their future classmates. Summer Orientation will provide you with everything you need to be ready for your first semester at Wheaton.


Registration is required for Summer Orientation. All new students will receive an invitation via their Wheaton email address in the coming weeks. We’ll be offering these sessions at four different times in order to pick a session that best fits your schedule. Each session will be offered through Zoom Video Conferencing and is expected to last 30-45 minutes. If you cannot attend at these times, we will host a make-up session the week of June 22, 2020 and there will be many other opportunities to connect with us throughout the summer!

Parents and families—don’t worry there is content for you as well. There will be sessions that cover academics and social life and how to be the support system for your students’ transition to college. An invitation will be sent to register to the email address on your students’ application.

Transfer Students

The Transfer student Summer Orientation is on Thursday, June 25, 2020 at 7pm.  Coming to Wheaton with prior college experience makes your needs a little different.  During this session you will learn more about how to start this part of your journey, meet some returning students who transferred to Wheaton, as well as your fellow new classmates.

Registration information will be sent to your Wheaton email.
