Summer 2020 Classes Start Online

Dear Wilmington University Students, Faculty and Staff,

The State of Delaware announced recently that its Stay-at-Home Order would last until May 15, 2020, or until the public health threat caused by COVID-19 is eliminated.

Since both the summer semester and summer Block 1 sessions begin on May 11, both will be conducted online:

  • Block 1 Courses (7 weeks):
    All courses will be conducted and completed entirely online.
  • Semester Courses (15 weeks):
    All courses will be conducted online for the first 7 weeks, through at least June 28. There is a possibility that summer semester courses originally scheduled as face-to-face could return to their original formats beginning June 29 (summer reading week). However, we continue to monitor the Centers for Disease Control and the State of Delaware and will provide definitive information once restrictions are lifted, and everyone’s safety is assured.

Wilmington University’s Cyber Days remain in effect. As you know, the University implemented this teaching approach that shifts face-to-face classes to dynamic and comprehensive online learning experiences. We invite you to take advantage of the useful information on our web site at Cyber Days

Wilmington University will continue to operate all services and business virtually at least through May 15.

I hope you’ll find creative ways to enjoy spring break and the warmer weather ahead as you follow CDC guidelines of social distancing and wearing a mask.

Jim Wilson, Ed.D.
Vice President for Academic Affairs
