Wilmington College and Southern State Community College have teamed up to make your educational experience affordable and convenient. We have partnered together to offer students an opportunity to study in a growing academic area as well as have the campus experience!
Students interested in the science field have the opportunity to study Biotechnology at Southern State Community College and live on-campus at Wilmington College! This opens the door for students to save money and still have the college experience.
Wilmington College and Southern State Community College are partners in education. Once students complete their Associates of Applied Science Degree they can seamlessly transfer to Wilmington College to complete their Bachelor’s Degree.
Biotechnology is a growing industry that implements the use of living systems and organisms to develop or make products. By using principles of biology and technology in the lab to solve scientific issues, this branch of science is used to advance technology in the agriculture, food production, forensic, pharmaceutical and medical fields, and more!

The Student Life division has two primary missions: first, to support the academic mission of the College by fostering a community atmosphere that cultivates success while offering co-curricular opportunities that complement the classroom. Second, to implement programs to create experiences that promote student involvement, personal growth and development, and integrity. We embrace the differences that make us individuals while celebrating the traditions that make us a community.
The Housing and Residence Life Office is located in Pyle Center and is staffed from 8 a.m. until 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. The residence halls at Wilmington are more than just places to sleep and to study. They are living-learning environments that promote individual growth and development.
