WilmU makes academic achievement affordable

A college education is an investment in your future, literally. Earning your degree at Wilmington University can help you make the most of that investment. WilmU is the most affordable private, nonprofit university in the Mid-Atlantic region.* Here’s how our budget-friendly academic programs enable you to build your goals into reality.

Maximize your return on investment. Earning a college degree can open the door to job opportunities and boost your earning potential over the course of your career. The competitive value of WilmU’s tuition rates — lower than other schools in the region, and the same rates for in-state and out-of-state students — mean that our graduates carry 40% less loan debt than the U.S. average. As a result, they’ll get to keep more of their projected earnings.

Learn while you earn. More than 130 of WilmU’s degree and certificate programs can be completed 100% online, so you can keep your day job, and your income, while pursuing your studies wherever you are and whenever your schedule permits. About 87% of WilmU’s students take advantage of our accessibility and flexibility to work full- or part-time while earning their degrees.

Earn credit where credit is due. Why pay tuition for the knowledge you’ve already gained? Our generous credit transfer policy and prior learning assessments can apply up to 90 previously earned credit-hours toward your bachelor’s degree, saving you time and money.

If you’re considering a college degree, Wilmington University is a wise investment.
