Transfer Credit by Testing Information

Review the Advanced Credit by Testing (PDF) for information on receiving transfer credit by testing. For additional information, please contact the Academic Advising Office at academic.advising@wheaton.edu or 630.752.7373.

How will my grades at another school affect my GPA at Wheaton?

Wheaton does not transfer grades, only credits, so your grades at another college will not affect your GPA at Wheaton.

Christ at the Core General Education Requirements

Here is a Christ at the Core (CATC) Gen Ed Checklist (PDF) of the general education requirements for the Christ at the Core curriculum which is the curriculum for all incoming students since 2016-2017.

When and how should I expect to hear how my credits will transfer to Wheaton College?

Accepted transfer students should expect to receive an official transfer evaluation by email from the Academic Advising Office in early April for fall applicants and late October/early November for spring applicants. For students accepted after the deadline, evaluations will be sent within two weeks of acceptance.

How can I register for classes?

  • Incoming first-year students and transfers will register over the summer. Details are sent by the Academic Advising Office.

Can parents have access to their son's 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.

Students: Review the Banner Proxy Access-Student Instructions for instructions on how to set up Proxy Access for your parents.

Parents: Review the Parent Instructions for Banner Proxy for detailed parent instructions.
