Now that you’re accepted, there are a few steps you must complete leading up to your first semester at Wilmington College.
All first-time freshmen students accepted to Wilmington College are invited to celebrate with us and be recognized on April 18, 2020.
To confirm your acceptance of admission and be eligible to register for classes, you must submit your enrollment deposit online through WILpay. If you plan to live on campus, you may pay your housing deposit at the same time. Instructions for receiving your WILpay password and student ID number can be found inside your acceptance packet.
Financial aid is awarded on a first-come, first-served basis to all accepted students beginning in January. A “Financial Aid Award Notice” will be emailed to you on receipt of your FAFSA results. When filing your FAFSA, please list Wilmington College and our school code (003142), so that your results will be sent to us electronically.
Beginning on Accepted Student Recognition Day (April 18), housing and Summer Registration information will be given to all students who have paid a deposit. Instructions on how to access the registration forms will also be mailed and emailed.
Your offer of admission is contingent upon receipt of your OFFICIAL, FINAL high school transcript. If you have taken college courses through PSEO, CCP or dual enrollment, you will also need to send your official final college transcript(s). Transcripts must arrive in a sealed envelope. Faxed transcripts are not considered official. All transcripts must be received by the day you move into the residence halls, or for commuters, the first day of classes.
You must complete the steps required by the Student Health Center by July 15.
New incoming students will receive an electronic statement through WILpay. The statement will be available to view and make online payments for Fall 2020 by July 1. Students have the option to pay in full or set up a 5-month Installment Payment Plan (IPP) with the first payment being due July 20, 2020. Students will re-enroll in the IPP each semester. Students will need to add a Parent Pin to allow parents to sign in to make payments, view their student’s account, and receive email notifications.
Your admission counselor will keep in touch with you throughout the year and you may reach out to them at any time. Visit Meet My Counselor to find your counselor’s contact information, reach out to the Office of Admission at firstname.lastname@example.org or 937.382.6661, ext. 260.
