Summer Classes at Wilmington College

Summer classes are a convenient way to stay on track to graduation, get ahead, or take an interesting class that may not fit into a traditional semester. Wilmington College offers an abbreviated Maymester as well as a summer semester that runs from June to August. These classes are open to Wilmington students and other community members. In addition, Wilmington College students who are headed home for the summer are encouraged to consider taking classes at one of our two branch campuses in Cincinnati.

Student Life

Room and Board:

Students can elect to live at Wilmington College over the summer if they are taking classes here or if they are working in the local community. Applications are available in the housing office starting in early April. All students are housed in Marble Hall and move from their spring assignments into Marble after cleaning and damage inspection is complete.

Over the summer, A/C is free and we expand the microwaves in the kitchen. In addition, alcohol is allowed for students who are 21 and older as long as their room door is shut and no minors are consuming alcohol. The TOP is closed from the last day of spring semester until the day before classes start in August.

If a student is taking classes or staying on campus while working elsewhere, housing costs $100.00/week for a double or $150.00/week for a single. Students who work on campus for 35 hours a week are only billed the taxable fringe off their wages, usually $25.00 to $50.00 per pay cycle.

Student Resources

Pyle center, including the lounges and weight room, are open from 6:30am to 10pm every day over the summer. The library is open from 8am to 5pm Monday through Friday. All three computer labs are open 8am to 5pm Monday through Friday.

Quaker Fit will continue to run over the summer according to student interest. The Quaker Fit schedule can be found under the current students tab of the website. The QRC and weight room in Herman Court will not be open over the summer.

Work

Any student can apply for summer jobs on campus. Listings can be found on WHOLELink. Many departments will be hiring in April for summer positions so the student can be trained before summer begins. Job listings are updated daily so check back frequently. Some on-campus jobs lower the cost of on-campus housing. This benefit will be listed in the job description. Students are encouraged to stop by the Career Services Center for help finding or applying for a job.

Branch Campuses

Our branch campuses offer a unique opportunity for students from the Cincinnati area to continue their education over the summer. Classes are offered once a week to accommodate work schedules. Non-accelerated classes run from May until August. Accelerated class schedules vary. A full list of classes can be found on the branch campus page of the website under academics. To register for classes at our branch campuses, talk to Academic Records.
