                                                    Spring 2011


Please use this form as you make plans to enroll at Wheaton College. It is very important to complete each requirement. Please keep this sheet for future
reference and make note of any deadlines.


Step 1 Set Up myWheaton Portal and email account
To find out the amount of your financial aid award you need to setup a new student account. [Current Wheaton College
employees who are first time graduate students do not need to create a new account] To activate your myWheaton account
and Wheaton email address, follow these steps:

     1.   Locate your five-digit Wheaton College ID number, which is printed on your Notification of Acceptance.
          You will need this ID number when you set up your account.

     2.   Go to the following website and follow the instructions to set up your accou nt: www.whea ton.edu/newaccounts

     3.   When the process is completed you will have a username and password and can log in to the MyWheaton portal
          which provides a single sign-on to the student database system, Banner Self-Service, http://my.wheaton.edu.

                            For help with your myWheaton account set up, please contact:
                Wheaton’s Computer Support Desk at computer.support@wheaton.edu or 630-752-HELP (4357).
                        Hours: Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Closed on weekends and holidays.

Step 2      Monitor the status of your Financial Aid award through my.wheaton.edu

     1. If you expect to receive th e need-based Wheaton Grant, you must submit a FAFSA ( http://www.fafsa.gov). Once your
        FAFSA has been processed you can proceed to the Financial Aid section in your my.Wheaton.edu account.

     2. If you have not submitted the FAFSA prior to receiving your admission letter you will not receive your financial aid
        award prior to the Enrollment Confirmation deadline set forth in your admission letter. Please contact the Graduate
        Admissions office to let them know you need an extension (Gradadm@wheaton.edu).

      3. If you filled out the FAFSA, your financial aid award will be presented as the amount of need-based grant you will
         receive, any endowed scholarships you have been awarded, and the amount of loan eligibility you have.

The image below points you to the student tab and the Banner Self-Service Folders. This will provide you with access to your
financial aid information.
