You must have a valid Wheeling University email address before registering on Med+Proctor.

If all four (4) of the items mentioned above are entered by the end of June, or by the middle of July; then the student will not be rushed to find, or go to the Dr. to get what they may need. This makes the students’ transition into Wheeling University go much smoother.
