Slate (Admissions CRM) 

The Wheaton College graduate and undergraduate admissions departments have been working hard to complete the migration from Ellucian CRM Recruit to Slate. Slate represents the state of the art in student recruiting and application management. We are already seeing the fruits of this change. Applications have been coming in steadily and are being processed more efficiently. Slate’s portal functionality will also provide a better experience for admitted students. A complete transition from the old system to Slate will be done by March 2023.

BitWarden Password Manager

AIT encourages the use of a password manager for work and for personal use.  As a result of AIT’s investigation into the significant data breach that hit LastPass back in November 2022, AIT has determined that LastPass is no longer a viable password management solution for Wheaton College. Therefore, AIT will be migrating all current Wheaton College LastPass users over to our new password manager, BitWarden.



  • If you currently have a Wheaton College LastPass account:  AIT will be in contact with you directly regarding your account migration to BitWarden.
  • If you do NOT have a Wheaton College LastPass account and your department is in need of a password manager, you can submit your department’s request here and a staff member from AIT will be in contact with you.

All Employees and Students of Wheaton College

  • If you would like to use a password manager, we recommend setting up a free account with BitWarden for your personal use.
  • Step by Step Intructions can be found on the AIT Answers page.

Thank you for doing your part to help keep the Wheaton College community safe.  If you have any follow-up questions or concerns, please contact the AIT Service Desk at or 630.752.4357(HELP).
