Welcome to Spring 2023 Advising & Registration.

Congratulations on your admissions to Wheaton College!  The Academic Advising Office (AAO) is excited for you, as you begin your Wheaton College story.  Please follow the Five Steps below, which will prepare you for the registration process.  If you have questions, contact us at academic.advising@wheaton.edu.

CONFIRM your Wheaton account

  • Start, if you haven't already, by setting up your Wheaton account.  Instructions are found HERE.
  • Once your Wheaton account has been set up, you will have access to the Wheaton Portal.  The Wheaton Portal is your home page for student account access, campus announcements, resource links and Banner Self Service.  We will cover in Step 5 how to use Banner Self Service to register for your classes.
  • Important Note: Please use your Wheaton email account when communicating with our office.  If you need help setting up your Wheaton email account, please contact Academic and Institutional Technology (AIT)AIT.Service.Desk@wheaton.edu or call 630-752-4357. The AIT Service Desk is the first place to go whenever you encounter technical issues with your Wheaton account.

REQUEST your transcripts

Wheaton requires your final high school transcript as part of your admissions record. Please have your final high school transcript sent to admissions@wheaton.edu.  We also need any and all transcripts or score reports that may earn you credit at Wheaton. Here is a list of the kinds of credit we accept and where to send those transcripts or score reports:

  • Advanced Placement┬«(AP): request through CollegeBoard.org. The code for Wheaton College is 1905
  • International Baccalaureate: request results be sent to Wheaton College (IL)
  • Cambridge Level A or AS exams: we need the centre number,  candidate number, and date of test emailed to academic.advising@wheaton.edu so we can access your scores
  • Request any college transcripts and have them sent to admissions@wheaton.edu
  • If you have other types of credit, please reach out to academic.advising@wheaton.edu. We can work with you to have the credit sent to Wheaton College

Here is a list of the Advanced Credit by Testing and how the credit articulates to courses at Wheaton College. Please note: We will process the transcripts and score reports in the order we receive them.
