Wheelock College Admissions Requirements:

- Official college transcripts (if applicable), translated into English by a recognized agency.
- Guidance counselor recommendation

- TOEFL or IELTS score (if English is not your native language). The minimum TOEFL score is 79 iBT or 550 PBT; the minimum IELTS score of 6.5
- Provide financial certification. International Applicants must complete the Financial Verification Form to show evidence of their ability to pay educational and living expenses while studying in the US. The documentation must demonstrate ability to pay the annual cost of approximately $47,360 and be certified by a bank seal. All documents must be in English and documented in U.S. Dollars. The U.S. Consulate will require the same documentation; we suggest you obtain two (2) original letters, one for your records and one for us. We will not accept photocopies or faxes of financial documentation.
Please send supplementary materials (transcripts, recommendations, etc.) to:
Boston, MA 02215
Once your application is complete, admissions will notify you in writing of the decision. If you are accepted for admission, you should plan to submit your enrollment deposit as soon as possible. After receipt of your enrollment deposit, your file will be forwarded to the Office of Student Success who will issue you a Certificate of Eligibility for Nonimmigrant (F-1) Student Status (SEVIS Form I-20) for a program of study at Wheelock College.
International students may qualify for partial merit scholarships, but Wheelock does not grant full scholarships. Need-based financial aid is not available to international students. More information is available here.
We highly encourage international students to apply Early Action. If you submit your application and credentials by December 1, you will be notified of the admission decision before December 24. The deadline for submitting the decision and tuition deposit is May 1.
Regular Decision/Rolling Admissions
After the Early Action deadline, Wheelock has rolling admissions where acceptances are offered on an ongoing basis until the class is filled. You will be notified of a decision within four weeks of completing the application. We give priority to applications submitted by March 1.
- Early Action: December 1
- Regular Decision Priority Deadline: March 1 (applications will continue to be accepted while space remains available)
Obtaining a student visa and entering the U.S.
International students must obtain a student visa to enter the United States to attend Wheelock. This process requires additional paperwork and is explained in detail on our Student Visa Information page.
Video Essay (optional)
You can take the optional opportunity to share your voice and help the admissions team get to know you better. Be creative!
Wheelock College prepares students to make a difference in the world, but the work they do is not easy. It requires passion, determination, inner strength, and perseverance. Please submit a brief (2-4 minute) video essay that shows how you plan to inspire a world of good.
Please upload your video to YouTube, Vimeo, or Tumblr. If you submit a video essay, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your full name and the link to your video. By submitting a video essay, you grant permission for your video to be viewed by the admissions team and the general public.
