All the Details

  1. Newly Admitted?

    If you’ve been accepted to Warren Wilson and are ready to commit, please pay your $300 enrollment deposit online now. Your deposit is nonrefundable and will go straight to your first semester’s bill. Note that you will need to have or setup your WWC Admissions Portal login. Can’t get your login to work? Drop us a line and we’ll be glad to help.

    Once you’ve logged in, fill out the Offer of Admission Reply Form (if you haven’t already). After that, you will see a new item on your Application Status Page that says, “Enrollment Deposit – Submit Payment for 307.80 USD,” which is where you can pay online with a credit card. (The additional $7.80 is a 2.6% processing fee for credit card payments.)

    ​​​​​​​You can also send a check in the mail made payable to: Warren Wilson College. Send it to:

    Office of Admission
    PO Box 9000
    Asheville, NC 28815-9000

    Please put the student’s name on the memo section of the check. You’ll receive a confirmation email when we receive it.

  2. Complete Your Financial Aid

    Complete the FAFSA, and (if applicable) verification process and/or North Carolina residency determination.

    • If you have not completed the FAFSA, you will only be eligible for merit-based scholarships.  If you would like to apply for need-based aid, including federal, state, and institutional aid, then you must complete a FAFSA.
    • If you are selected for FAFSA verification, you must complete that process before you receive a final financial aid offer.  Note the verification process can can take weeks — don’t procrastinate!
    • North Carolina residents must complete and be approved for NC residency on the state NC Residency Determination Service (RDS) website before being eligible for NC need-based aid and the Warren Wilson College NC Free Tuition program.
    • If you’re accepting your students loans, you must complete all loan paperwork before funds can be disbursed.
    • For help, contact the Financial Aid Office (phone or text) (828) 771-2082 or email finaid@warren-wilson.edu.

  3. Setup Your WWC Login Credentials and Email

    Once we have processed your deposit, your new network and email accounts are created within 24 hours. When your account is created, your WWC username and temporary password are emailed to you (if not, get in touch). This is a different username and password from the one you use for the applicant portal!

    New students who deferred from a previous term may have already completed some or all of these steps.  If you’re confused or having trouble, we can help – email us at web@warren-wilson.edu.

    Set your password & account recovery options

    • Step 1: Change your password to something of your choosing!
      Remember, this should be at least 10 characters long and not easy to guess. Choose wisely as it affects how you sign into most systems at Warren Wilson.
    • Step 2: Wait about 5 minutes for your new password to get set throughout the WWC system, then set your personal phone/email so you can easily recover your account if you forget your password.

    Setup your WWC Email

    • Go to http://mail.warren-wilson.edu (or you can just go to Gmail).
      Your username for email and Google resources is the same as your email address, for example: jdoe.f22@warren-wilson.edu.
    • If you see a ‘Sign in’ screen here asking you to enter an email address to login, then continue to the next step.  If you’re already signed in to Google with a personal email, then sign out.  Note: If you’re using Chrome and want to access multiple Google accounts at once, you can add a new profile. Search “Add a person to Chrome” to find out more.
    • Use your full email address (your user name@warren-wilson.edu) and your new permanent password (the one you setup in the steps above) to sign in.
    • Check your email regularly.

    If you are having problems, or if you have not received your login credentials, then please email web@warren-wilson.edu.
