All standardized testing is optional at Wheaton. That said, if a student submits multiple SATs and/or ACTs, we will consider the highest score on each section among all test dates. We do not use the writing score in admission decisions, and we report scores only scores on the critial reading and math sections; not writing.
Wheaton's academic calendar includes 2 15-week semesters: from late August to just before Christmas, and from late January/early February to mid-May. During the extended 5-6 week break between fall and spring semesters, Wheaton students typically pursue internships, paid jobs, and/or shorter courses that may not relate directly to their academic concentrations. Though no requirements exist around the January term, the wide variety of opportunities available leads the vast majority of Wheaton students to take advantage of this time to expand on their Wheaton liberal arts education.

Students sometimes wonder what course their lives would have taken had they attended a different school—perhaps a larger one in a city. And then the majority usually realizes it probably couldn’t have turned out any better than it was at Wheaton. In the course of four years, Wheaton allows students to discover who they are and what they love in life, and that is far more valuable to them than being super competitive with classmates and always worrying about grades.
Don't get the wrong idea: Wheaton is competitive, but there is an overall sense that there is more to life here than just people passing through to get a job. The school’s motto is, “That they may have life and have it abundantly,” and many think that it truly does fit the school’s character. Students aren’t a number on a sheet here—they are individuals who are looking for a path in life that will let them continue to learn, live, and love what they do. Many wouldn’t trade an outlook like that for anything.
