Home away from home

Part of what makes Wheaton such a special place is the fact that nearly all students live on campus in either a residence hall or theme house (plus, many faculty and staff live in Norton or nearby). It makes for strong relationships, great conversations and feeling like they’re part of something important (which they are).

Meal plan

The campus features 19 traditional residence halls, including the brand new, super energy-efficient Pine Hall. Each hall has its own look and feel and is staffed by resident advisors who organize social events, intramural teams and other programs.

First-year students are enrolled in the carte blanche (all-you-can-eat) meal plan for the fall semester, which includes vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free and other allergen-free options. With this plan, students can enjoy unlimited meals in Chase Dining Hall and select from meal options in three additional locations (Emerson, Hood Café and the Davis Spencer Café). This plan includes $50 in Lyons Bucks per semester that can be used at Emerson and the two cafés (additional Lyons Bucks can be added to their account at any time). First-year students may change their meal plan to one of three resident plans for the spring semester. A description of these plans can be found at

Every weekend, and most weeknights, there’s something happening around campus: speakers, discussions, movies, open mic nights, concerts, dances and more— plus 21 NCAA Division III teams to play or root for. Need more? Check out Boston, Providence or New York City—just a short bus or train ride away.

Need a pick-me-up? Students can grab Starbucks, Green Mountain Coffee and Equal Exchange fair-trade coffee at spots around campus, or drop by The Lyons Den—our student-run coffeehouse with comfortable spaces to study, socialize and listen to live music.

Room details

In late spring, students will receive a new student information packet directing them to fill out an online housing survey. Based on that survey (due in late June), students will be matched to a room and roommate(s). We expect that they will receive assignments by the first week of August. Many roommates choose to connect by email, social media, or online during the summer. Regardless of how they meet, they’ll connect on Move-In Day in late August.


To Do: Get a room assignment Look for instructions on how to create your official student account in the new student info packet, arriving in late spring. Log in to the portal and take the housing survey. 5

To Do: Get to know your class Follow the Wheaton Class of 2026 official Instagram account, @wheatonma2026. Say hi. Introduce yourself. Start a conversation. Get excited.


You do you

Each student that we admit is a distinct and talented individual. So when students come to Wheaton, we want them to continue being that person. Luckily, we have more than 100 student organizations and club sports—plenty of opportunities to try something different and excel at being themselves. Theme houses

After the first year at Wheaton, students might choose to live in one of Wheaton’s more than 17 theme houses, with people whose interests are similar to theirs (or whose interests are discovering new interests, maybe). Themes change from year to year. Some recent themes: agriculture, arts, environmental sustainability, feminism, food insecurity, Hispanic/Latino culture, intercultural understanding, LGBTQIA, media and film, the outdoors, political science, social justice, STEM inclusion and violence prevention.


HOW ABOUT: academics, a cappella, anime, anthropology, archery, art, art history, Asian culture, astronomy, badminton, cancer prevention, chamber music, cheerleading, chorale, Christian fellowship, community service, computer science, cooking and baking, creative writing, debate, education, entrepreneurship, environmental education, the equestrian team, feminism, fencing, film, fitness classes, French, gaming, global health, recreational golf, gospel and R&B, Greek culture, health professions, hip hop, history, home building, ice hockey, improv, investing, Japanese culture, jazz band, Jewish life, knitting, Latinx/Spanish dance, Latino/Hispanic culture, LGBTQIA+, literature, math, media, medical anthropology, mental health, the Middle East, mock trial, Model UN, multicultural dance, news, the outdoors, peace, ping pong, philosophy, politics, psychology, radio, religion, robotics, rugby, sexual health, soccer, social justice, sociology, songwriting, step, spoken word poetry, steel drumming, student government, sustainability, swing dancing, tap, teaching English, tennis, theater, think-tank research, tutoring, ultimate frisbee, and world music. See the full list of current student activities online at 8

You’re part of our community Learn more and sign up for these clubs at the Activities Fair in September. If this list of activities isn’t enough, Wheaton students are encouraged to start something new! Wheaton traditions

It was a Wheaton student who had the idea of bringing a Hindu tradition to campus in the form of Holi, the Festival of Colors. On the last day of classes each spring, students gather on Chapel Field to mark the end of the academic year with color, fun and a little chaos.

Another Wheaton tradition: The Head of the Peacock Regatta, held on Spring Weekend. Students build boats using everything from bottles to old bathtubs and race to the other side of Peacock Pond and back (or just try to stay afloat). It’s wet and wild and very, very Wheaton.

Some traditions are official, like the March of the Acid-Free Paper and the Senior Hoop Roll (which you’ll learn more about later). Others are unwritten: things you should do before you leave Wheaton, like sled in the Dimple or study in the “Harry Potter Room.” All of these things and more make Wheaton the special place it is—a place that now includes you. Welcome.


The Wheaton edge on the competition

A Wheaton education is personal—it looks different for every student, and students discover what their path looks like with the help of the many people and resources available here. Their education, both in and out of the classroom, will help them think critically, forge connections, develop professional skills and build a network for life. Learning at Wheaton happens in classrooms, labs and studios, on the field or court, in student clubs and activities, and through campus jobs and volunteer opportunities around our community. All of these opportunities and experiences make up what we call The Wheaton Edge and gives students an edge in the fast-paced, competitive, increasingly global world we all live in.

A few Filene Center services: • Workshops on resume and cover letter writing, interviews and jobsearch skills

One part of this edge is the guaranteed access to a funded internship (office, field, research or otherwise), before the start of the senior year at Wheaton. This guarantee may come in the form of an award or scholarship stipend, The Wheaton Edge junior summer stipend or other programs.

• Networking opportunities with alumni and other professionals

Wheaton invests more than $1.2 million toward this effort annually. The staff at our award-winning Filene Center for Academic Advising and Career Services will work with students from day one to find and make the most out of these experiential learning opportunities, and to understand how they fit into each student’s plans for the future.

• Annual internship showcase highlighting experiences from the past year • Panel discussions on specific career fields, such as English or computer science • Conferences designed for mid-career sophomores and graduating seniors



The world is about to get bigger

It’s not too early to think about studying, volunteering or interning abroad. Wheaton tuition, including financial aid, can be applied to 100+ programs in 45+ countries around the world. Possible destinations include: Argentina, Australia, Austria, Bhutan, Bolivia, Botswana, Brazil, Cambodia, Cameroon, Chile, China, Costa Rica, Czech Republic, Denmark, Ecuador, Fiji, France, Germany, Ghana, Greece, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Jordan, Madagascar, Mongolia, Morocco, Netherlands, New Zealand, Panama, Peru, Russia, Serbia, Samoa, Senegal, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Switzerland, Tanzania, Tunisia, Turkey, Turks and Caicos, Uganda, United Kingdom (England and Scotland), U.S. Virgin Islands and Vietnam.

1,700 students 40 countries 40 U.S. states

The Center for Global Education will help students find a program that matches their career interests and goals. They can spend a semester taking classes at Royal Thimphu College in Bhutan. (Fun fact: the King of Bhutan went to Wheaton!) Conduct biological research with the School for Field Studies in Costa Rica or Kenya. Study for a year in Australia. Create music and art during a summer in Ireland.

Whether or not a student chooses to travel, at Wheaton they will be part of a global community. Our community members’ diverse backgrounds and perspectives make Wheaton a fascinating place to live and learn and set students up for success in a global world.

Financial aid FAQ


We recognize that cost plays a major role in the college selection process, and we want to provide helpful information as you plan for a Wheaton education. Below are some of the most commonly asked questions, and answers, about financial aid. How is eligibility for financial aid determined?

also uses our own Wheaton financial aid application, Institutional Methodology (IM).

Other colleges may choose to use FM to administer all of their funds, or might use FM only for some students. Some colleges use their own IM but have modified the formula to be more or less stringent. Colleges’ aid policies are generally based on institutional philosophy, resources and priorities. Some offer only need-based aid, while others incorporate merit into their awarding policies.

The need-based financial aid program at Wheaton assumes that the family has primary responsibility for paying college expenses; financial aid then supplements the family contribution. Wheaton’s program also considers a student’s academic history and potential when awarding funds. Using a uniform and equitable formula, we first calculate a family’s ability to contribute toward college expenses. We then compare this amount to the total cost of attendance. If the calculated family resources are less than the total cost, you have demonstrated eligibility for need-based assistance. Based on the demonstrated need of the entire pool of admitted applicants, Wheaton distributes institutional grants and campus-based federal and state aid funds. These resources are finite; demand and demonstrated need across the pool prevents the college from meeting 100 percent of the calculated need of all students.

If you believe that your aid differs because of errors in your aid application or a significant change in family circumstances, please send the Office of Student Financial Services (SFS) updated information to assess the impact on your aid offer.

Why does Wheaton require financial information from the non-custodial parent?

Wheaton believes that both parents are responsible for supporting their child’s education, regardless of their marital status. In order to determine eligibility for campus-based and institutional funds, Wheaton first considers all resources available to the student and their family. Regardless of the marital status of the student’s biological or adoptive parents, each parent’s ability to contribute to college costs is calculated before we commit need-based institutional dollars. By completing the noncustodial Wheaton Application for Financial Aid, that parent helps the student to complete the aid application to determine eligibility for funding; it does not bind either parent to paying a specific amount toward the student’s education.

Wheaton also offers merit-based awards at the time of admission. If you are the recipient of an award, it is included in calculating your remaining eligibility for need-based funds.

What’s included in the “cost of attendance”?

The cost of attendance is an estimate of all expenses you are likely to incur over the academic year. It includes tuition, room, meal plan and mandatory fees for which you are billed by the college. For financial aid purposes, it also includes an estimate for books, supplies, and personal and miscellaneous expenses.

Why does a financial aid package differ from one school to another?

Wheaton uses Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) data and the Federal Methodology (FM) to determine eligibility for most federal- and state-funded financial aid. To determine eligibility for federal and state campus-based and institutional funds, Wheaton 17

Our family’s financial situation has changed. What should we do?

How do we calculate how much we will have to pay, based on my financial aid package?

First, try to determine the financial implications of the new situation. Is it temporary/voluntary? Is the impact one-time or sustained? Once you determine the overall effect on your family’s income, write or send an email to Student Financial Services (SFS). We will request supporting documentation and ask you to complete a Request for Review form. We will review your new information and determine if there is eligibility for additional financial assistance for the academic year. Financial aid increases are contingent on the availability of funds.

Using your financial aid package and the Wheaton Payment Worksheet available at wheatoncollege. edu/go/sfs-forms and on page 27, you can calculate your billed charges minus financial aid. Do not deduct Federal Work-Study from billed charges, as students are paid for their hours worked on a bi-weekly basis. If you would like to use an educational loan to cover a portion or all of your family contribution, you should begin the application process in June. At that time, we will provide detailed instructions regarding financing options and procedures.

Will my financial aid package stay the same every year?

When are payments due?

Recipients of need-based financial aid must reapply each year, providing updated family financial information. To the extent that your family’s financial situation does not change, your aid will be consistent from year to year. This means that your Wheaton grant and scholarship funding would be renewed at the same amount from one year to the next. For financial planning purposes, families should expect an increase in comprehensive fees each year in the range of 3–4 percent. This is not covered by Wheaton’s institutional need-based grant program. Federal Direct Loan limits do increase from the first year to sophomore and sophomore to junior years, enabling students to cover some of the increase in comprehensive fees through the Federal Direct program loan limits. Wheaton scholarships and awards do not change from one year to the next; renewal is contingent upon the student remaining in good academic and social standing.

In mid-June you will receive an email from SFS to notify you that your fall semester charges and pending aid are available online through the Nelnet portal. This statement will itemize tuition, fees, room and board charges, and health insurance charges for the fall semester and note any credits (reductions to what you owe) for anticipated financial aid or other payments— for example, your enrollment deposit. The Wheaton Payment Worksheet will allow you to calculate the final amount due, deducting any forms of aid that have been awarded but are not yet credited to your account. See the financial aid timetable at right for deadlines.

How will receiving private scholarships impact my financial aid?

Outside sources of funding can significantly reduce your debt burden and work commitment over the years. For those reasons we encourage students to investigate as many alternative funding sources as possible. If Wheaton has not been able to meet the full amount of your eligibility, outside scholarships may be used to replace any unmet eligibility. If the scholarships exceed the amount of unmet eligibility, we will reduce the amount of loan funding and employment funding (self-help) in your aid package. Only after all self-help has been eliminated will we reduce Wheaton grant funding.

The greatest change in a student’s aid eligibility occurs when the number of people in the student’s household or the number of siblings in college changes. Families often do not anticipate the impact this has on aid. Because a student’s aid eligibility is significantly higher with siblings in college, it can be dramatically reduced as those siblings graduate or choose not to enroll for a period of time. If you anticipate that a sibling will start or leave college during your enrollment at Wheaton, we would be glad to forecast the impact of that change on your expected family contribution. Contact SFS to set up an appointment to speak with a counselor.

The college does not mail printed statements to enrolled students.

Wheaton College Student Health Insurance

According to state law, all students must be covered by a health plan that is comprehensive and comparable to the plan offered through the college. To ensure that all students have adequate health coverage, Wheaton initially charges all students for the Wheaton College Student Health Insurance Plan. To waive enrollment in this plan, and to have the initial charges reversed, complete the Student Health Insurance Plan Waiver, available at after June 1. The deadline to complete this waiver is August 1 for students enrolled in the fall semester and January 1 for students enrolled in the spring semester only.

For international students: Any student with health insurance provided outside the United States will be required to enroll in the Wheaton Student Health Insurance Plan. This policy complies with Massachusetts state insurance regulations and ensures timely and quality health care while attending Wheaton.

Health and Immunization Records

New students must submit records from a recent physical exam and an immunization record by July 15 for fall admits and by Jan. 5 for January admits. If the required information is not received by the due date, your course registration may be at risk. Full details of the requirements are at health-forms.


Alternative financing options Wheaton offers a variety of financing options in addition to traditional financial aid programs. These options give families the opportunity to spread out payment of Wheaton’s comprehensive fee anywhere from 12 months to 25 years. Educational financing terms are in many cases better and more flexible than options that may be available privately to individual families. We urge any family examining how to pay for Wheaton to give these programs serious consideration. Many families have found that a combination of payment and loan plans work especially well for them.


Interest-Free Monthly Payment Plan

Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan

Students who are not eligible for the Subsidized Direct Loan program are eligible to borrow a direct loan without the federal interest subsidy. Although repayment of principal is deferred during enrollment, interest will accrue. The student borrower has the option of making interest payments while in school or having the accrued interest capitalized (added to the principal borrowed prior to the start of repayment). First-year students may borrow up to $5,500 for the year, sophomores up to $6,500, and juniors and seniors up to $7,500 per year. The interest rate is currently fixed at 3.73 percent and is reset annually on July 1. Students who wish to apply for the Unsubsidized Direct Loan must complete a FAFSA.

Offered in partnership with Nelnet, the monthly payment option is an alternative to large annual or semester payments and helps limit borrowing.

This option is available each semester and includes: convenient, interest-free, monthly payments; 24-hour automated account information through Family InfoLine; and personal account service Monday through Saturday. To enroll or inquire further, call 800-722-4867, or visit

Supplemental loan programs

Most educational loan programs allow for early prepayment of principal without penalty and require the borrower or co-borrower to have U.S. citizenship or permanent residency.

Private Educational Loans

Wheaton researches the educational loan market and collects information on a variety of loan programs. Visit for information on private educational loan programs available to Wheaton students. The list is not exhaustive; you may find loan programs with favorable terms offered to residents of your state or through other loan providers. Wheaton will certify loan eligibility for any loan program or lender you select.

Federal Direct PLUS Loan

The Federal Parent Loan for Undergraduate Students (PLUS) program enables creditworthy parents to borrow through the Federal Treasury. The interest rate is currently fixed at 6.28 percent and is reset annually on July 1. Repayment of principal and interest begins after disbursement or may be deferred and continues for a maximum of 10 years. Eligibility for the PLUS loan takes into consideration the total cost of attendance less any other aid received. The Federal PLUS is the most flexible of these parent financing options. A brief credit check is performed to confirm a favorable credit history. If the loan is denied due to unfavorable credit history, the student may qualify for additional funds from the Unsubsidized Federal Direct Loan program. Parents who wish to apply for the Federal PLUS must complete a FAFSA for the student.


Award and scholarship FAQ


If you received an award or scholarship, as noted in your admission letter, you probably have questions. Here are answers to some frequently asked questions.

How was I selected to receive an award/scholarship?

How does this fit into my financial aid package?

In choosing students to receive awards and scholarships, the Admission Committee considers a number of factors including the individual’s potential to impact the Wheaton community. Some of the qualities considered include co-curricular accomplishments, community impact, leadership, intellectual inquiry, academic prowess, commitment to diversity and inclusion, and global experiences, among others. While many of our applicants present compelling qualities, our limited scholarships and awards are extended based on the strength of each candidate within the context of our applicant pool.

Your award or scholarship both acknowledges your talents as an applicant and is intended to help make attending Wheaton possible. Students with financial need greater than the amount of the award or scholarship may be considered for additional needbased resources.

Can my award/scholarship be applied to a study abroad program?

Awards and scholarships at Wheaton may be used for study abroad programs that are affiliated with the college (i.e. where fees are paid directly to Wheaton). Contact Wheaton’s Center for Global Education or visit for a current list. If you choose to attend a non-affiliated domestic or study abroad program, you will forfeit your award or scholarship for that period.

Will I receive my award/ scholarship each year? Yes. Fifty percent of your annual award or scholarship will be applied each fall or spring semester that you are a full-time student at Wheaton, up to a maximum of eight semesters. If you complete your degree requirements in fewer than eight semesters, you will forfeit any remaining scholarship eligibility. Your award/scholarship is for use toward Wheaton tuition expenses only. You must remain in good academic and social standing to continue receiving the award or scholarship.

How can I use my stipend, if I received one?

Wheaton’s top merit scholarships come with a $3,000 stipend to be used in the summer following sophmore or junior year. The staff of the Filene Center for Academic Advising and Career Services will work with you to obtain an unpaid and non-credit-bearing, out-of-class experience (and use your stipend as payment), or you can create a position of your own that would otherwise not have been a paid opportunity. This experience may be an internship, research project, student-faculty collaboration, professional development opportunity or community service endeavor. If you have not applied for your one-time stipend by spring of your junior year, your stipend will revert back to the college’s stipend fund.
