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 be lengthy — 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

  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. Select Your Housing & Meal Plan

    Note that we are returning to our normal, largely on-campus/residential plan for the 2021-2022 academic year. Read more information on COVID preparedness.

    Select your Residency

    The majority of our students live on campus. Participating in the residential community on campus, while also working on campus, is a critical component to a WWC education. Students who live on campus have been shown to be more engaged in campus life, therefore contributing positively to their experience in college, identity development, and in most cases achieving higher GPAs.

    There are a few situations in which we allow new students to live off campus and commute to classes – these exemptions and policy details are available in the application linked below. Day Students do not have to pay Room & Board but are assessed a $500 fee per semester and billed per meal in campus dining facilities and/or may purchase flex dollars.

    Select a Meal Plan

    The cost listed below includes a standard, double-occupancy room. Note that North Carolina Sales Tax is charged on meal plans, per NC Statute – tax details are available in the application linked below.

    Plan Cost Gladfelter Cowpie Flex Dollars Sage Dollars
    PREMIUM Meal Plan $6,075 / semester Unlimited Meals 1 Scan / Meal $200 Flex $40 Sage
    PLUS Meal Plan $5,965 / semester Unlimited Meals 1 Scan / Meal $100 Flex $30 Sage
    OPEN DINING Meal Plan $5,875 / semester Unlimited Meals 1 Scan / Meal $25 Flex $15 Sage

  6. 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

    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 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 in your Coloring Book 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 (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 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

  8. Register for Orientation

    Available soon!

  9. Complete Your Student Health Records

    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.

  10. Register for an Online Group Advising Session

    The Group Advising Sessions will help you learn how the academic program and calendar work at Warren Wilson College and how to utilize available resources to build an academic schedule. All first-year students and transfer students, even those who have met with a major advisor, must attend one of these sessions. The earlier you join the group sessions and schedule an appointment with your Integrated Advising Coach (IA Coach), the more options you will have when it comes time to sign up for classes.

    The first sessions will begin on June 28th and options will be offered through July 14th.

    If you are a student-athlete or a transfer/early college student, there is a specific session just for you. But, if you absolutely can’t make it to one of those, please attend a general group session and you will need to discuss any missed information with your IA Coach.

    See all dates and to register.
