Admissions Deadlines and More Info

Early Action
Wheelock has non-binding Early Action admissions for first year students who want to receive their decision before winter break.  The Early Action application deadline is December 1.

Regular Decision
**UPDATED April 2017: Although the priority deadline has passed, the online application is still open.
Wheelock has a rolling admissions policy combined with a February 15th priority application deadline. Applications are received and acceptances are offered on an ongoing basis until the class is filled. Students who apply by February 15th will receive priority consideration for admissions and scholarships.

Beginning with 2017 applicants, Wheelock College will be following a "Test-Optional" admissions policy.
If you have already taken the SAT* or ACT, feel free to send those scores to us (SAT code=3964; ACT code=1934). If students elect to not send scores, they will not be penalized in any way.

Informational Interviews
We want to get to know you as an individual, and the best way to do this is for us to sit down and have a conversation with an admissions counselor. These can also be conducted via Skype or phone if you cannot come to Boston. Please contact us at 617-879-2206 or register online.

Wheelock College does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic or other school-administered programs.
