  • After successfully completing ONCAMPUS Boston’s first–year experience, you will have earned 28–32 credits and be on track to earn the 120 credits most schools require to receive a Bachelor’s Degree. Find out more about the University Transfer Program.

University Campus

  • Like most college freshmen, you will live in a residence hall (also called a dormitory or “dorm” for short), with a close-knit community of students, that is located right on Wheelock’s campus.  This is a mandatory part of ONCAMPUS Boston’s program because residence halls are an ideal place to make friends, socialize, and acclimate to college life in America.
  • You will share a room with another student of the same gender who may be American or another international student who speaks a different language than you.
  • Your floor will have a Resident Assistant/RA (also a student at Wheelock) who organizes social activities and is there to answer questions. There is also a Resident Director, a professional who is responsible for creating a safe and happy environment for everyone in the building.
  • A meal plan is included and you’ll find the dining hall and campus cafes are great places to socialize.
