Wilmington College accepts transfer credits from any and all regionally accredited institutions. A maximum of 67 semester hours credit is acceptable from institutions offering only an Associate Degree Program and a maximum of 97 semester hours credit is transferable from 4-year institutions. To determine what classes will transfer directly from your current institution(s), you are welcome to set up a Transcript Evaluation appointment with Pam Baessler, our Assistant Registrar, by contacting her via phone at 800.341.9318, ext. 322. Please note that she will require transcripts to be sent to the Office of Admission one week prior to an appointment.
The completion of 124 semester hours or credits of academic work is required for graduation. A minimum of 30 semester hour credits must be registered for and completed at Wilmington College in order to receive a Wilmington College degree. To determine an academic timeline in preparation for graduation, please contact the Office of Admission to schedule a campus visit or contact Pam Baessler, our Assistant Registrar directly to schedule a transcript evaluation meeting.
Transfer students with at least 12 semester hours of credit should have a minimum college grade point average of 2.0 and be in good academic standing from the previous institution. Transfer students who do not have or will not have attempted 12 semester hours of credit will be accepted based on high school academics and ACT/SAT scores.
The following application materials are needed for admission to Wilmington College:
All official, final college transcripts must be received before classes begin for the semester in which the student is enrolling. Students will not be permitted to attend class and class registrations will be cancelled if all official transcripts are not received by the deadline stipulated in the student’s acceptance letter. All documents should be sent directly to the Office of Admission.
Action will be taken on applications when all material is received. Notification of admission decisions is sent immediately. An acceptance is always conditional upon maintaining the standard of academic achievement and conduct through completion of the last term at another institution.
All need-based financial aid is determined by the filing of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This system ensures consistency and fairness in awarding financial aid to students with genuine need regardless of race, color, creed, sex or national origin. The FAFSA may be completed at www.fafsa.ed.gov. Students must be accepted to the College before a financial aid award can be determined.
Depending on the time of admission and the number of transferable credit hours, transfer students have the option of registering with their current class during the open registration period or schedule an individual registration appointment through the Office of Admission if class registration for their class year has already passed.
All degree-seeking students will be assigned an academic advisor. Students are typically assigned to faculty members in the students’ academic major of interest. Students will maintain the same academic advisor throughout their academic duration at Wilmington College unless a formal change is made by the student and the change has been approved by the proper administration. Students will be required to meet with their academic advisors each semester prior to registration.
All students are classified as either “regular” or “special”. A regular student is one who has been admitted through the Office of Admission as a candidate for a degree. A special student is one who is not seeking a degree from Wilmington College, but taking classes for professional development or for a special interest. These students may complete a Special Student application in the Office of Admission. A student may continue in the status of “special student” indefinitely and accumulate an unlimited number of hours. However, regardless of the number of hours accumulated, all special students must abide by the terms of the special student classification:
The Wilmington College Main Campus does not offer online courses. While some courses are offered during weekday evenings, all academics majors require a student to attend classes during the daytime.
Students only interested in receiving education licensure should contact the Wilmington College Education Department directly at 800.341.9318, ext. 274.
Any student who has been academically dismissed or suspended from his/her most current institution is not admissible at Wilmington College. It is recommended that the student investigate other education opportunities to strengthen skills through college level courses in English composition and college mathematics. It is also suggested that the student enroll in basic classes such as psychology, science, language, etc. Upon successful completion of one academic year of course work at another accredited institution, we will review the student’s application again. However, admission is not guaranteed at that time.
