"This school should 100% be rated higher, and I think they are working toward that. The finance program has boosted my earning power in the accounting field where I am already employed. The knowledge of have gained from the overall business program (as opposed to solely the finance core classes) has tremendously helped me expand my usefulness to my employer(s). Some of the online classes are better than others because some of the professors have surpassed others by using video lectures, Zoom meetings, written and presentative resources, and just overall did better than other professors. I think all schools probably have this fluctuation in consistency. I am completely satisfied with the education I have received and WilmU and equally as important, the cost was affordable enough where I could pay cash. This is an excellent deal for a quality education."

"I would recommend this school to future students. I had exceptional education and devoted professors. Most of my professors had careers in the field in which they taught in. This made it easier to learn the material. I obtained real life examples and first hand knowledge of the jobs I would be performing."

"I enjoyed my time at Wilmington! I feel that it was a great education at a very affordable price. I appreciated that the staff was always willing to help me and assist me when I needed them. The teachers were wonderful! I felt that I was attended to and assisted where and however I needed it. The online experience was thorough and the curriculum was excellent! Because it is online, it is accessible to anyone, anywhere , at any time. I have a very hectic work schedule so this was paramount to me and I appreciated the flexibility of the program so that my life was (for the most part) uninterrupted. I also was appreciative of the fact that the textbook prices were mitigated by the fact that the professors usually didnt require them. The most expensive book I ever had to purchase was 300$. Often times , there wasnt a textbook listed. My previous school was known for excessive book pricing so this was a huge plus for me. I remember how helpful everyone was at the online help desk, I often called several times because of some issues I had (that were my fault) but the staff was always willing to help. My teachers were very easy going and understood scheduling conflicts and worked their best to make sure that I was accommodated so that my assignments were counted and graded in a timely fashion. If you are searching for a great school at a reasonable price , check out Wilmington!"

"I was so impressed with the level of support I received as a graduate student at Wilmington University, I decided to continue my educational goals there after I received my Masters Degree. I am currently a doctoral student at the university and am receiving the same level of support and commitment from the faculty."

"I experience at Wilmington University was great. All my professors and staff were exceptional. I can't complain about any part of it. I learned the things that are relevant in today's business world so the knowledge was useful immediately. I would highly recommend Wilmington for anyone looking for a flexible, competetive undergrad program. I'm in the Master's program now and expect this experiece to by as good if not better than undergraduate studies."

"Wilmington University was a great school for me. The classes I needed to take were always available. This made it easy to finish my degree. There are also 4 different campuses that students can attend. This makes it so students do not need to make a far drive for class. Online courses were also available which makes it easier for students who have busy work and/or family lives. I would recommend Wilmington university to anyone interested on obtaining there degree."

"I have chosen Wilmington University as the next building block into my future. I have selected my graduate program through Wilmington University, because I had an exceptional learning experience, with this university, while obtaining my Bachelors Degree in the Science of Psychology. I thoroughly appreciate how caring and helpful the university staff members are and how the university itself continuously provides students with seminars, job fairs and general education in each work field, simply to build us as professionals in the best way that they can. In addition, the university professors are significantly knowledgeable, enthusiastic about educating their students and always prepared to assist in any way that they can. As for my experience with my peers, at Wilmington University, they are always very supportive, and being as the class sizes are typically very small, the encouragement began to feel almost family like. I made my decision to continue pursuing my education at Wilmington University, while finishing my Associates Degree in the Applied Sciences of Human Services from Delaware Technical Community College. Delaware Technical Community College and Wilmington University have a connected degree program and I knew that was the right program for me. This being said, I have all intentions on continuing my education with this university because I know that it exceeds adequacy in all necessary aspects."

"I came to this site to research a school of someone I might potentially hire, and saw that my school is under-recognized. Wilm ingtonU is a great school filled with helpful teachers. The degree I earned is nationally accredited and has gotten me a great promotion and a serious pay bump. I recommend it to everyone. Affordable, accessible, worth it"

"Wilmington University is a great place to attend school. I was always able to personally get to know my teachers. They were always willing to help or would know the right people to reach out to to help you. The degree program was very hands on learning which I loved. Your able to take the standard 15 week courses or for those like myself who wanted to get done sooner you have the 7 week option the hybrid option or the modular courses. My original major I wanted to take was communication, but at the time of this being a growing university that was not offered as a major. This is how I fell into studio production, however my advisor was very flexible to thw point she was able to change most of my courses to communication based classes. I enjoyed the entire experience I had there."
