Happy Students

Congratulations again on your admission to Warren Wilson College!

Now what?

There are many things to consider as you decide whether or not Warren Wilson is right for you. We suggest the following:

Visit: Even if it’s your second or third time, weekdays during the months of March and April are ideal. We can offer you a student-led tour of our beautiful campus, invite you to take classes and join in on campus activities and service trips. You will also be able to meet other students and professors, observe work crews in action and stay overnight with a student host in her/his dorm room. Schedule a visit.

Financial Aid: File the FAFSA. Once you have filed and the information has been processed, please log in here to view your financial aid estimate or a final award, and see what other verification materials our Financial Aid Office may need. The Financial Aid Office awards need-based aid, which means that it is contingent on the results of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Your award will consist of the Federal Direct Loan (either Subsidized, Unsubsidized, or a combination of both) and the work earnings (Federal Work-Study, Federal Work College, or Institutional). In addition, depending on need, you may be eligible for WWC institutional need-based grant money, Federal grant funds, or state aid programs.

Scholarships: Scholarships are awarded upon your admission to the College. You do not need to fill out additional forms and there is not separate deadline. For questions about our scholarships, please contact your admission counselor. If you receive an outside (non-WWC) scholarship, please inform us by contacting our Financial Aid office, 800-934-3536 or email

Join us: Become a part of the Warren Wilson College Class of 2019, get to know the other accepted students and ask questions on Facebook. You may also join a group for a previous year (if you are graduating before 2019). The Class of 2019 group is for all of our new students to receive updates about orientation. Plus, who doesn’t need more friends?

Talk to a current student: Our admission office consists of students who would love to talk or email you about their WWC experience. They will give you their honest opinion and nothing is scripted. Just call 800-934-3536 or email
