We want to see your app come in, stat!

You can now apply to both Vanguard and Wheaton College with the same application! When prompted on the Vanguard application, simply click the button that notes you also want your application considered for admittance to Wheaton College. 

  • Vanguard + Wheaton College: If a student is admitted to both Vanguard and Wheaton College, they can start their Wheaton College experience at Vanguard and continue to Wheaton College the following year. 
  • Vanguard Only: If a student only wants to apply to Vanguard, that's great! Apply only for the Vanguard Year. If things change, they can update the Vanguard application to be considered for admittance to Wheaton College.
  • Use the Common App: Once you submit the Common App to Wheaton College Undergraduate Admissions, simply email Laura Elliott. In the email to Laura, say you'd like your Common App to be considered for Vanguard.
