Welcome New Wellsians!

We can't wait to meet you!

Get ready to start your Wells adventure!

Welcome to the Wells family! You’re about to join a vibrant campus community and more than 7000 proud alumni who have made Wells their home and a launchpad for future success.

Now that you’ve sent your deposit, we encourage you to finalize your financial aid as soon as possible and review these next steps. 

There’s no need to stress. We’re here to make it easy. Please reach out to the Office of Admission with any questions!


Finalize your financial aid

After you receive your letter of admission, you will also get your personalized financial aid offer in the mail. This mailing includes your financial aid offer, which details all scholarships, awards, grants, and other funding you are eligible for. Review and sign this letter to accept your financial aid, then upload the signed Award Letter as a scanned document or clearly lit photo through your portal (under the “Upload Materials” section). You can also send it to the Admissions Office by postal mail, or take a photo of it and email it to us. Remember to keep a copy for your records!


Visit us this spring!

Now that you know you’re in, we bet you’ve got new questions and curiosities about student and academic life at Wells.

Schedule a personalized visit to get the inside scoop on life as a Wellsian from our current students, faculty and staff — we’ll be happy to tailor it to your interests and academic goals!


Register for Summer Orientation!

Wells College is excited to host two Orientation weekends for admitted students and their families this year. 

During this required overnight program you’ll socialize with your new classmates and complete other important tasks for fall arrival, including placement testing and academic advising. We have some fun activities planned for parents, too. To cover the cost of meals, housing, and other activities, there will be an additional fee of $200. 

July 7 & 8 and July 21 & 22


Activate your Globe ID

We begin sending instructions and log-in credentials for The Globe to incoming students in mid-May.

The Globe at Wells is our student portal where you will take many important actions, including registering for classes, setting up your Wells email, reviewing your housing assignment and paying your tuition bill. 

Please refer to the email sent to you with the subject line “Your Globe ID is ready” — you will need your ID number to log in and activate your account.

NEXT STEP (Mid-June)

Choose Your Housing

Housing is assigned on a first-come, first-served basis depending on the date you submitted your deposit. 

You’ll find the Housing Preference Form and the Roommate Questionnaire in your admission portal. Housing and roommate assignments will be  posted to the Globe when this process begins in early June.

If you have concerns once you receive your assignment, don’t panic! Plenty of things shift around during the summer and requests for housing changes are typically granted before move-in day.

Eligible students may also request a housing exemption. See your portal for more details and a separate form. 


Complete Final Paperwork

Be sure to refer to your checklist in your admission portal often to see what paperwork or forms we need or may still need to be finalized. In addition to the steps above you must also complete the following forms online or upload these PDFs to your portal:

  • Important Contact Information Form
  • FERPA Release Form
  • Proof of Health Insurance – students who are US citizens or permanent residents must upload a copy of the front and back of their health insurance card.

We also need you to submit the separate Health Report below.

Woohoo, You Did It!

We are so excited to be a part of your Journey.
