How to Register

Information about dual enrollment

In general terms, most introductory dual enrollment courses taken for college credit will transfer, with the exception of Wellness/Fitness for Life/Sport Activity, College Algebra/Trigonometry/music lessons and vocational courses. All credits accepted for transfer will still go toward the total hours needed to graduate, even if not meeting a specific requirement. Wheaton College has a transfer cap of 40 hours earned from all sources (AP, IB, SAT II, Dual Enrollment, etc.) earned prior to high school graduation. A maximum of 4 categories in the Thematic Core can be met by transfer credit.

Can parents have access to their son or daughter's grades or other information online?

Yes, after August 1, Banner Proxy allows students to authorize parent access to specific academic, student account and/or financial aid information.  The student completes the Banner Proxy information in their Wheaton portal and the parent is sent an e-mail with information on how to set-up their own log-in information to view what has been authorized by the student. Current Wheaton students have been sent an email detailing how to set up access (a two-minute process).
