Enrollment Deposit

Become a Scot! Log-on to your student application portal to pay the non-refundable $400 enrollment deposit, which secures your place in the Class of 2026.

We encourage all students to submit the enrollment deposit before, or on, May 1 so we may provide important next steps about housing and course registration.

Make sure you use your email address and password created after you applied (parents – please don’t try to create an account separately). Or, you can mail a check (payable to The College of Wooster). If all else fails, call our office so a staff member may assist you at 800.877.9905.

All Wooster students will be required to be Up-To-Date with their COVID vaccines before attending an in-person ARCH session or the start of their first semester (whichever on-campus event happens first). Currently the CDC defines Up-To-Date as having received all recommended vaccines, including any booster dose(s) when eligible. Students who have medical, disability, or religious reasons why they cannot receive a COVID vaccine may apply for exceptions to this policy. Up-To-Date students should submit their vaccine record information prior to their arrival to campus.  Check out more details here
