Now that you’re accepted, there are a few steps you must complete leading up to your first semester at Wilmington College.
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 “College Financing Plan” will be emailed to you on receipt of your FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) results. When filing your FAFSA, please list Wilmington College and our school code (003142), so that your results will be sent to us electronically.
Instructions on how to access the registration forms have been emailed to you. If you have not received them or have any questions concerning the registration forms, contact your admission counselor.
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 semester 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. 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.
