SCS cares about caring for you well

The Student Care Services C.A.R.E.S. system is now active through the Wheaton portal!

The system provides a C.A.R.E.S. Connection for our campus community. The C.A.R.E.S. Connection represents Care, Advocacy, Resources, Engagement, and Support through intentional and on-going connections for student retention and success.  SCS seeks to partner with each student as we strive to provide the best care and support for their success.

The Student C.A.R.E.S. Connection link can be accessed through the Student Care Services C.A.R.E.S. System by clicking on the student “undergraduate” or “graduate” tab of the Wheaton portal.  The following form is available for students.

The Support and Resource Request Form – Designed to encourage students to self-advocate for their needs as well as request resources necessary for their success during their time at Wheaton College. This form have options of support and resources aimed to help students with their overall well-being and to foster academic success.  When a student submits their form, the SCS office staff will follow-up to work with the student regarding their request.
