Evaluating & Committing to Warren Wilson

Congratulations again on your admission to Warren Wilson College! There are many things to consider as you decide whether or not Warren Wilson is right for you. We suggest the following:

Visit: Even if it’s your second or third time, a visit is the best way to get the feel for what Warren Wilson has to offer. Take a student-led tour, participate in classes and join in on campus activities. Schedule a visit.

Financial Aid: The first step in receiving a financial aid award is to file the FAFSA. If you have any questions about filing the FAFSA, your eligibility, or your award, please reach out to the Financial Aid office at 800-934-3526 or

Scholarships: Scholarships are awarded upon your admission to the College. You do not need to fill out additional forms and there is no separate deadline. For questions about our scholarships, please contact your admission counselor. If you receive an outside (non-WWC) scholarship, please inform us by contacting our Financial Aid office, 800-934-3536 or email

Join us: Become a part of the Warren Wilson College Fall 2017 Incoming Class, get to know the other accepted students and ask questions on Facebook. You may also join a group for a previous year (if you are graduating before 2021).

Talk to a current student: Our admission office consists of students who would love to talk or email you about their WWC experience. They will give you their honest opinion and nothing is scripted. Just call 800-934-3536 or email

Have you made your decision about WWC?

Reserve your place now by making a deposit. The deadline is midnight, May 1st. Your $300 deposit may be made before this date in one of three ways:

  1. Send a check in the mail made payable to: Warren Wilson College. Send it to the 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. Call us at 800-934-3536 or 828-771-2026. We can take your debit, Visa or Mastercard over the phone. We’ll email a confirmation to the student’s email.

Note that the deposit is non-refundable.

Defer: Ecstatic about your acceptance but determined to take a gap year, work, or travel? We are happy to defer your admission for a semester or year. To do so you must pay your deposit and then contact your admission counselor to request a deferral. If your request for deferral is approved, your deposit will hold your spot for the semester you choose to join us.

Withdraw: Please call 800-934-3536 to discuss or email your counselor. We’re sad to see you go, but we do understand. We’d love to know which college you did choose and why, or why not WWC?
