Great School and Staff! Always willing to go out of their way to assist with whatever is needed. Classes are usually small due to their online courses but if you are interested in taking a in-person class, it is wonderful!

Great school! Instructors are very helpful and professional. You basically get out of it what you put into it. If you want to be successful in your career you have to put in the work, time and effort. The bookstore prices however are outrageous. I think that for struggling college students the prices for books and school supplies should be a little more reasonable.
As a transfer student from UMUC, I have enjoyed my experience with WilmU thus far. WilmU offers many different ways to take classes including in-person, online, hybrid, and recently developed web-cam participation. Though I have had a couple of professors that I would not typically prefer, all of my classwork has been challenging and rewarding. I have taken all of my classes online so far, but I may attend an in-person class in the near future. Even with taking classes online, there is ample opportunity to participate in on-campus events and meet other students. So far, every class I have been in has required a video introduction, which has allowed me to connect with my classmates. There are several different clubs, groups, and sports teams. WilmU really wants you to be a part of the college experience, even if you are a distance learner. I have always been under the impression that my intellectual success is a priority to them. I feel like I am more than a number.
