New Student Orientation

Welcome to the Wheaton College Graduate School! We're excited to have you be a part of our community. You will get an opportunity to meet your faculty, staff, and classmates during orientation, and will learn about Wheaton's resources that will help get your Graduate School experience started off right.

Some of you are continuing your education at Wheaton College after time away or recently finishing your undergraduate program and others of you will be joining the community for the first time.

We want to invite you to participate in All Graduate School Orientation, which is scheduled for August 26-27, 2019, to welcome you, celebrate this new season of life, and provide you with the tools you will need to flourish here. Orientation will include opportunities to meet staff, faculty and fellow classmates as well as interact with key offices on campus, like the Registrar and Financial Aid, to ensure that you are equipped to begin this new chapter of life at the Graduate School.

Non-residential modular students are more than welcome to attend the August Graduate Orientation if their schedule allows.
