Welcome to the Wells community! This page contains helpful next steps for what to do after you have been accepted to Wells College. We're always happy to help, so if you have questions please contact the Enrollment Team through email or call 315-364-3264. Our office is open Monday - Friday, 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. You can also send an email to your admissions counselor for quick assistance.
1. CONFIRM YOUR ENROLLMENT BY SUBMITTING YOUR ENROLLMENT DEPOSIT: Your deposit secures your place in the upcoming term. This $300 non-refundable deposit will be credited towards your semester bill. Students who have confirmed their enrollment will receive access to important paperwork regarding campus housing assignments and early class registration. You can pay the deposit online through your Status Page in the "Payment Due" section:
2. SUBMIT YOUR FAFSA. We encourage all students to submit a completed FAFSA, regardless of financial need. Your FAFSA helps us determine additional financial aid and scholarships you may be eligible for. Send your FAFSA to Wells to uncover more funding opportunities!
3. ACCEPT YOUR FINANCIAL AID PACKAGE. Once you receive notification of your admission, you will also get a personalized financial aid package via postal mail. Review your Financial Aid Award Letter and sign to accept your awards, then upload the signed Award Letter as a scanned document or clearly lit photo through your Status Page. You can also send it to the Admissions Office through the mail. Remember to keep a copy for your records!
If you have questions or need further assistance, contact the Financial Aid Team through email or call 315-364-3289, Monday - Friday, 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
4. VISIT CAMPUS. Even if you've already been to our beautiful lakeside campus, come back and sit in on a class or request to spend a night in a residence hall with a current student host. Experience college living firsthand!
