Wheaton College IL students on quad lawn

Each year, Wheaton College welcomes over 60 transfers from other schools, both two- and four-year institutions.

Maybe you attended a community college that was close to home to save money while you explored your interests. Or maybe God is calling you to a different college community with Christian and intellectual peers, where you'll find the career and vocational preparation you are looking for. No matter your story, we look forward to equipping you to discern if Wheaton College is the next destination on your college journey.
