Dear New and Transfer Parents, 

On behalf of the Parent Engagement team, welcome to Wheaton College! We are thrilled to welcome you to the Wheaton family.

I encourage you to spend some time on Wheaton’s parent website. Here, you’ll find relevant information, including contact information, a special Parent Announcements webpage, and an Academic Calendar which will come in handy in your planning throughout the year.

Parent Orientation begins with student move-in on Thursday, August 19 and Friday, August 20* and will be finished on Saturday, August 21 at 2 p.m. If pandemic restrictions change in Illinois and we need to update our plans, we will let you know as quickly as possible.

The Orientation schedule reflects the full Parent Orientation program. Events where parents are included are marked with a black icon, so pay special attention to those. As you make your travel plans, here is helpful information about lodging, directions, and a campus map.

If you have any questions, please contact us at parents@wheaton.edu or by phone (630.752.5047). We look forward to meeting you soon!
