Wheelock College, a private institution founded in 1888 and located in Boston, Massachusetts, merged with Boston University in June 2018 and is no longer an independently operating college. Prior to the merger, Wheelock College specialized in education, social work, child life, and family studies reinforcing its dedication to improving the quality of life for children and families. Established by Lucy Wheelock, the college was set in a suburban environment with urban proximity, providing students with both a close-knit campus setting and access to the amenities of a major city. While the college operated, it was known for its selective admissions process. Wheelock College offered on-campus housing options, fostering a residential community for its students. Although the college placed a strong emphasis on its academic programs rather than athletics, before the merger, students may have known their athletic teams as the Wheelock Wildcats. As of the merger date, all references to Wheelock College pertain to its historical context prior to becoming part of Boston University?s Wheelock College of Education & Human Development.

  708 students are enrolled on a full time basis, and 182 attend part time. In-state tuition for 2022/2023, excluding room and board, is $34,950 plus fees of $1,400.
