Independent Minds, Working Together


College Fee

Fees for fall semester are due on August 10, 2012. International students have the same billing timeline as domestic students, so do plan ahead. It takes time to transfer funds from abroad or to clear a check of a foreign denomination. The fee for late payment can be as high as $300. Access to room and meals will not be allowed if you have a due balance. Your fees cannot be paid with a credit card. If you need to confirm the amount of your due balance, or you have special questions or requests, please contact the Accounts Receivable Supervisor Krista Way in the Business Office (330-263-2321).


The College of Wooster is a residential institution; students live on campus for all four years. Read about the residential environment at the Office of Residence Life, and be sure to submit your on-line “Housing Application,” “Signature Verification Page,” and “Myers-Briggs Personality Inventory” by June 1.

Health Forms

The Hepatitis B and Meningococcal Meningitis Vaccine Form (due June 1) is required, and so is the Student Health Form (due June 15). You will not be able to register for classes without completing these forms. Bring with you any needed medications and an original of any prescriptions so you can get your medicine in the U.S. If you have questions, contact The Longbrake Student Wellness Center or Ms. Esther Horst, Acting Director of Student Wellness.

A Tuberculosis (TB) Skin Test is required for all new students who have been living outside of the U.S. The test will be administered during Woo@First GLANCE. A recent intradermal TB test with documented results from your home physician will exempt you from the test at Wooster. If your test is positive, you will visit the Wooster Clinic for a chest X-ray and further care as appropriate.

E-Mail Accounts

The College will issue you an institutional e-mail account that typically will include your first initial, last name, 16 (representing your class year), followed by You will receive official notification of this from the Dean of Students, and you are responsible for accessing and using this account as soon as possible.
