Congratulations! Among 6,000+ applications, you hold the academic know-how, varied interests and talents, empathy, and curiosity The College of Wooster seeks in future students. We welcome you and your family to our vibrant community of global learners.

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.

If you applied under the Early Decision agreement, please submit your deposit by December 1. We encourage all other 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 fully vaccinated before the start of their first semester. Students who have medical, disability, or religious reasons why they cannot receive a COVID vaccine may apply for exceptions to this policy. Fully vaccinated students should submit their vaccine record information prior to their arrival to campus.  Check out more details here
