Advance Work and Syllabus
Check the advance work for each course as professors have varying approaches and due dates. What one professor expects is not always the case for every professor. A general guideline is that advance work is due on the first day of class, however, some professors ask for it the Friday before the first day of class, so please check the course syllabus. Course descriptions, syllabus and advance work are posted for you on our website. Look under your specific program to find the course you are taking.
Candidacy for Degree-Seeking Students
All graduate students must complete a candidacy form in their first semester (or before they will register for courses beyond 12 hours if they are part time) in order to continue registering for courses at Wheaton College. If you are nearing the 12 credit mark, complete this form before you reach 12 so that you will never have a hold placed on your account blocking your registration in the future. Graduate Candidacy Form can be found here.
Special Students (considered non-degree seeking by the Registrar’s Office)
Once you have taken 12 credits of classes, you can no longer apply classes toward the MA. Be sure to begin the full Wheaton College MA application process as soon as possible. You can apply online by clicking here.
Check your my.wheaton.edu email account frequently for important information that may impact you both academically and financially. It is important to respond from your Wheaton email account when contacting Wheaton campus departments. Academic forms and petitions will only be acknowledged from your Wheaton email account. Instructors (or their TA’s) may also send out information to your my.wheaton.edu account.
Email email@example.com to ensure all necessary immigration and/or VISA documentation is complete in a timely fashion. You can also find more information on the International Student website. This should be done by February 10.
Health Insurance Cards
ONLY Modular Students, including International & Canadian
- Please review the Student Health Insurance Card information in the Health Services site for important information relating the health insurance.
- Send a copy of your health insurance card to Health.Insurance@wheaton.edu by February 10. All modular students who are registered for classes must send a copy of their insurance card to Student Health Services. This proof must be a copy of the current health insurance card and can be in the form of a fax, email, or traditional mail. If a student does not have health insurance or fails to comply with this requirement, a fee anywhere between $150-$200 will be charged to their student account. This fee will cover the cost of health insurance for them while on campus. Temporary insurance is accepted but a copy of the insurance card is still required. The proof of insurance must be sent to Student Health Services each time you come to campus. For more information contact Health.Insurance@wheaton.edu.
- International (including those from Canada) modular students must purchase insurance through Student Health Services each time you come to campus. The insurance cost is billed at a daily rate for a minimum of ten days. For more information, email Health.Insurance@wheaton.edu.
