Wheaton College graduate students and undergraduates can borrow at the circulation desk by showing their current Wheaton College ID card.

  • Special program students may need to have their ID card activated or renewed by a circulation supervisor.
  • Students enrolled in Wheaton courses but living away from campus should see the Students at a Distance page.
