Admission COVID-19 FAQ

What if I have questions about my financial aid offer? 

The Office of Financial Aid will still be available to answer your questions. We encourage you to contact us at (920) 748-8358 or [email protected] between the hours of 8 am – 5 pm. You can also get in touch with your admission counselor with questions. Should students’ family financial situations change now or in the future, Ripon is ready to assist with a special circumstances review process. 


Are there opportunities to meet with Ripon College admission counselors during this time? 

Register for a virtual visit appointment with a Ripon College admission counselor to have a personal conversation about your path to becoming a member of the Ripon College Family. Time slots are available Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., and 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. (excluding Friday evenings).

We will be offering limited in-person visits on campus. Register for an on-campus visit today. For the safety of our campus community and our guests, all visitors are required to wear a mask while on campus, remain socially distanced on tour, and may be subjected to digital health screenings (i.e. temperature checks) during their visit.  Prospective students visiting campus are able to bring up to two guests who reside in their household to the campus visit. Please contact us at [email protected] or (920) 748-8709 if you have questions on our commitment to safety.


My high school/college or university is allowing me to take my course work for the Spring ‘20 or Fall ‘20 semesters as pass/fail. Will this impact my admission or scholarship decision at Ripon College? 

No, taking courses pass/fail for the Spring 2020 or Fall 2020 semesters will not have a negative impact on your admission or scholarship decision from Ripon College. This will hold true for students applying for future terms. All deposited students will still be required to submit their final high school transcript prior to enrolling this fall. Per the Department of Education, Ripon College must be able to verify the graduation of each enrolled student in order to remain compliant with federal student aid. The high school transcript with a graduation date included can serve as that documentation. 


I am not able to take the ACT or SAT this year, will that affect my admission to Ripon College? 

For all future Ripon applicants (2020 and beyond): As you know, Ripon has been a test-optional school since 2016, so we are very flexible if students are unable to take (or choose not to take) the ACT or SAT. Ripon College is test-optional for both admission and scholarship decisions.
