Wilmington University is a private educational institution of higher learning, with its main campus placed in New Castle near Wilmington, Delaware. The University was founded in 1968 as Wilmington College and was granted university status in 2007.
The University is fully accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools and offers undergraduate and graduate-level degree programs, as well as non-credit adult learning programs in a diversity of career areas at six locations in Delaware and three in New Jersey.
The name changing from College to University helps to better reflect the concentration on baccalaureate and higher degree programs that distinguish Wilmington University from other community colleges as well as effectively communicate the full commitment and mission of the University.
The program of day, evening, and weekend classes serves both traditional high school graduates and non-traditional adult students in need of flexible scheduling. Classes are primarily offered in 15-week, 7-week, and weekend modular formats. Except of these face-to-face learning options, Wilmington University offers a wide array of online learning options, including fully-online degree programs and hybrid courses and programs (combining face-to-face and online learning).
Wilmington University generally serves commuter students and does not provide student housing facilities. However, the University welcomes all qualified students and assists those needing living accommodations by providing a listing of nearby rental opportunities.
The main task of the Financial Aid Department is to provide access to higher education for a diverse student population regardless of financial circumstances. Supported by a student-centered philosophy, the staff strive to guide and assist students in fulfilling their academic goals.
