What does



mean to you

Getting the promotion

I’ve worked so hard for.

Finding a way to


earning my degree with my busy life.

Being able to

afford my tuition. Being known

by my name,

not as a number.

Learning from instructors with

real-world experience.

Getting credit

for classes I took at my old school.

Earning the credentials to be

a leader in my field.

What does



mean to you

The chance to go after

my dreams.

At Wilmington University

opportunity means...

Transformation. Progress. The chance to pursue your career and become a leader. A teacher. An innovator. It’s not just about meeting your potential­—it’s about exceeding it. We’re different. And proud of it. Our focus is on making sure everyone has the chance to reach their goals and become leaders in their professions. We empower students to overcome obstacles and earn a degree in a way that fits their lives. WilmU® students have the opportunity to choose programs that emphasize in-demand skills that employers need. They benefit from the promise that their tuition won’t skyrocket from year to year. And they know that their potential is measured by what they do and who they are—not just by the score they earn on a standardized test. Experience the WilmU Difference



lt’s your education.

Make it fit your life. Our students have many commitments. From full-time jobs to kids and volunteer work, there’s always something else competing with schoolwork. We understand. That’s why we help you balance the responsibilities of everyday life with the rigors of earning a degree.

Courses start every eight weeks. Wilmington University courses are offered in seven-week, 15-week or weekend modular formats. Taking classes in seven-week block format means you can concentrate on fewer classes at one time, but still move quickly through your program. You can also choose from courses offered during the day, in the evening or over the weekend. Most programs offer options to help you customize your course schedule.

Online or in the classroom. It’s your choice whether you want to take courses entirely in the classroom, 100% online or a hybrid of the two.
