Accepted Student Days
So you’ve been accepted but you want to learn more? Our Accepted Student Day visit events are just what you’re looking for. Come immerse yourself in the full Ripon College experience.
Tour a residence hall and explore various student organizations and volunteer opportunities. Participate in academic round tables and learn how Ripon will prepare you for life after college. Meet with admission and financial aid staff to get answers to any of your last-minute questions. And just as importantly, meet your future classmates.
File the FAFSA
Financial aid can come from federal, state, institutional and private sources. It can be in the form of gift aid (scholarships and grants) or self-help (student employment and low-interest loans).
We determine each student’s financial aid individually, and you may receive a combination of types of aid depending upon your eligibility. Ripon College awards financial aid using information from the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
This form is available online, from your high school guidance counselor or from the Office of Financial Aid. If you haven’t filed the FAFSA yet, visit www.FAFSA.ed.gov. The Ripon College FAFSA code is 003884.

Attend Summer Orientation
Concerned about making new friends at college? No worries. By the time you’re through Ripon’s orientation sessions, you’ll have a roomful. Summer orientation sessions are held in June for first-time students and transfers.
During summer orientation you can meet your academic adviser, plan your course schedule and be introduced to some of your new classmates.
