    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. Accept Your Financial Aid Offer in NetPartner

    If you haven’t already done so, log in to your Net Partner account to accept your financial aid offer and view any pending requirements needed to finalize your financial aid.

    Your financial aid cannot be applied to your student account bill until you accept OR decline each of your offer(s) listed and complete all paperwork. Please log in to Net Partner for more details. You can find more information about NetPartner and how to login here.

  4. Complete Your Health Insurance Waiver

    You’re required to have health insurance to attend, and Warren Wilson enrolls you in a CIGNA plan and adds the charge to your bill.  CIGNA health insurance provides coverage until July 31. CIGNA is the insurance company, and CHP / Wellfleet is the plan administrator (for managing benefits, claims, and communications).

    If you have health insurance already through a parent or guardian, please fill out the waiver to cancel enrollment and reverse the charge for our student health insurance.

    • Go to https://www.studentinsurance.com/Client/408
    • Choose Waive and then Waive Online. Follow the instructions to create an account.
    • Make sure to use your WWC email address, and you will need your WWC student ID number.
    • Enter your insurance information.
    • Waiving in the fall will waive coverage for the entire year.
    • It takes a few days for the insurance company to process the waiver. It’s a good idea to check back in and verify that the waiver has been processed.
    • Make sure you receive confirmation from CHP / Wellfleet that your waiver was approved. If the charge is not removed from your Student Account within 5 business days then your waiver has not been approved. Log into your CHP / Wellfleet account to complete the waiver process.

    NOTE: The waiver must be completed by August 17 for Fall enrollment or the charge will not be reversed.  For more information, email studentlife@warren-wilson.edu or call (828) 771-3800.

  5. Setup Your WWC Login Credentials and Email

    Your WWC username and temporary password have been emailed to you (if not, get in touch).  Once we have processed your deposit, your new network and email accounts will be created within 24 hours.

    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.

    Note that you cannot login to your new Gmail account until you setup your login credentials with the instructions below.

    Set up Your Credentials

    • Get your temporary login credentials.
    • Go to https://reset.warren-wilson.edu and click the “My Account” button. Do NOT click the “Forgot My Password” button.
    • Login and follow the instructions to setup your recovery email address, define your security questions, and change your password to a permanent one.  Now the temporary password we emailed will no longer work for any of the College systems — use your new password instead.
    • Give the system 10-15 minutes to propagate your new login credentials to Gmail.

    Setup your WWC Email

    • Go to http://mail.warren-wilson.edu (or you can just go to Gmail).
    • 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.

  6. Send Us Your Documents

  7. Complete Your Student Health Records & COVID-19 Vaccination Verification

    You must be logged into your Warren Wilson Google account before you can access these forms – we recommend you use a computer and not a phone.

    Student Health Record

    Before you begin, make sure that you have a digital/scanned copy of your Immunization History ready to upload.

    Don’t procrastinate! You may need to visit your doctor before this can be completed, and the Student Health Record is required before you can attend classes.

    Complete your Student Health Record online.

    COVID-19 Vaccination Verification

    COVID vaccination is mandatory for all students.

    In order to show proof of vaccination, the Health Center has launched the Vaccination Verification Form. ALL students must complete this form prior to moving onto campus for the start of the Fall 2021 semester. You can complete this requirement by either providing proof of vaccination or waive this requirement by providing proof of medical exemption or by claiming a religious exemption to the vaccination. As with all medical documentation, this form is private and will only be used by our medical personnel.

    Vaccination Proof:
    The form will ask you to upload a clear copy of the vaccination card you receive when completing the COVID vaccination.

    Medical Exemptions:
    The form will ask you to provide approved documentation from a licensed physician.

    Religious Exemptions:
    The form displays a copy of the North Carolina Immunization Law, North Carolina General Statute 130A-157 for you to read and electronically sign.

    The CDC has launched a Federal Retail Pharmacy Program for COVID vaccinations to provide assistance in finding access. This website: Vaccines.gov will also help you find vaccination sites near you, and could be especially helpful for college students who need a second dose in a different state.

    Please email studentlife@warren-wilson.edu with any questions.

    Complete the COVID Vaccination Verification Form

  8. Pay Your First Semester Bill

    Students enrolling for Fall will receive a billing packet in the mail that provides you with a statement for your first semester along with helpful instructions about ensuring your financial aid is applied, payment plans, and payment options.

    NOTE: Completing the Health Insurance Waiver (above) will reverse the charge for student health insurance.
