Get Ready: Preparing for Your First Day

The secret to success is in the planning. Use the checklist below to help you prepare for your first day at WilmU.

WilmU ID Card

1. Get Your WilmU ID Card

A University ID card is required to be prominently displayed while at all WilmU locations and the Athletic Complex with the exception of New Jersey and Maryland locations. You will need to bring a government-issued identification card (valid driver's license, state ID card or passport) with you to obtain your WilmU ID Card.

3. Get Your Course Syllabus on Blackboard

Get your course syllabus online before your class begins using Blackboard. Be sure to review your syllabus for any advance readings or assignments that you may need to complete before your first class meeting. Most course syllabi are available about 2 weeks prior to the start of the term.

4. Get Your Textbooks at the Campus Store

Be sure to get your textbooks before the first class. Instructors often refer to textbooks and readings during the first class, so don't start off behind by not having the required textbooks.

5. Find Your Classroom using WebCampus

Avoid first-class confusion by going online to find out which building and classroom your class will meet. This information is usually ready and accurate about 1 week prior to the beginning of the semester. However, due to varying class sizes, we may need to make last-minute adjustments to classroom assignments, so also check the day before or early the day of your first class meeting.

After logging in to WebCampus, click "My Schedule" under "Registration" from the menu to view your schedule, including the classroom assigned to your course. If you don't have access to WebCampus, you can find this information on the public Course Schedule.

6. Avoid Parking Stress! Get to Campus Early

Parking at the New Castle campus during the first two weeks of the term can be limited. Be sure to arrive early to allow for plenty of time to get to class. If parking lots are full at New Castle you may be directed to our off-campus overflow parking which may take extra time.
