Welcome Admitted Students


Congratulations on your admission to Whittier College! Here's a checklist of things to take care of as soon as possible.

  • Submit your FAFSA and ensure Whittier College is included in your list of schools. Receiving your FAFSA will allow the Office of Financial Aid to prepare an accurate financial aid package for you.
  • Pay your Enrollment Deposit to hold your spot for Fall 2024. Your $400 non-refundable enrollment deposit can be made by credit card with just a few clicks. Enrollment deposits can also be made by check to the order of Whittier College. Please include the student's Whittier ID in the memo. Mail to: Whittier College, Office of Admission, 13406 E. Philadelphia St., Whittier, CA 90608. Be sure to contact the Office of Admission if the $400 enrollment deposit imposes a financial hardship for you and your family.
  • Request a deferment, if needed. It is possible for students to accept an admission offer but to enroll one or two semesters later than the term to which they were originally admitted. To request a deferment, complete the Request to Defer form in your Application Portal by May 1.
  • Visit Campus through our virtual tour and connect with our Admission Counselors.
  • Check your Application Portal for updates to your Financial Aid Award and contact the Office of Financial Aid for any questions related to your award.
  • ​​​​​​Review all emails and mail from Whittier College to ensure you are not missing important information from various departments on campus that will help with your transition as a new student.
  • Veterans/Students Eligible for VA Benefits, please contact Cristina Navaja (mnavaja@whittier.edu) to begin the benefit assessment process.

The Office of Admission is here to assist you with answering questions and serving as your liaison as you prepare to become a Poet.
