Congratulations again on your admission to Warren Wilson College!
There are many things to consider as you decide whether or not Warren Wilson is right for you. We suggest the following:
Visit: Every weekday during the months of March and April is Accepted Students Day, but we welcome your visit anytime. Ideally, you should schedule your visit to be between Monday and Friday so that we can give you a 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 a dorm room or in our charming guest house (pending availability). 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 (not including scholarships) 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) and the Warren Wilson College Financial Aid Application (WWCFAA). 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: The deadline for our competitive scholarships (honors, work, service, sustainability, art, creative writing) is March 15th. Apply by logging in here, and don't forget to send or email in the essays and other materials necessary for consideration. For athletic scholarships, please contact the coach directly.
Join us: Become a part of the Warren Wilson College Class of 2017, get to know the other accepted students and ask questions on Facebook. Who doesn't need more friends?
Talk to a current student: Our admission office has seven students who would love to talk or email with you about their WWC experience. Yes, we pay them, because admission is their work crew, but they will give you their honest opinion and nothing is scripted. Just call 800-934-3536 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Where the stalwart pioneers built their highland homes,
Still our college presses near frontiers yet unknown.
Gold of sun across a sky cast of mountain blue,
Glorious banner, heaven high, calls us to be true.
Take your place and do with us what tomorrow needs of you.
When the shadows sweep the light from the face of day,
Songs of freedom break the night. This is what they say:
God who raised our hills of home guard our fortress still,
Walk with us along the way, teach us wisdom 'til
Like a thousand stars by night we shall faithfully lead the way.
