Visit Campus

Visiting campus is the perfect way to learn all about Wilmington College! We recommend that you visit campus at least two times if your schedule allows – the first time by attending an open house to get a general feel for the atmosphere and to make sure we have what you are looking for. The second visit should be through an individual visit so that we can customize your visit to exactly meet your needs. We provide a variety of visit options for you. Take a look and see which ones work best for you. All programs include a campus tour, a meal in our main dining hall and information sessions on admission requirements, scholarship opportunities and financial aid.

Please Note: Reservations are necessary with each visit option and can be made via the web site, email, or telephone. You will receive a confirmation that your reservation has been received. If you do not receive this confirmation, you should contact us to confirm your reservation.
