Coronavirus Update - All Courses and Services Continue Online Through August 23

Dear Wilmington University Community,

While Gov. John Carney has lifted certain restrictions in the State of Delaware, calling this Phase 1 of Delaware’s economic reopening, most establishments are operating at 30 percent capacity. Clearly, it is not safe to resume business as usual.

We choose not to take chances with anyone’s health. We have decided to continue conducting all face-to-face (in-person) and hybrid courses online at least until the end of Summer II, which is Aug. 23, 2020. All University campuses and sites will also remain closed with all services and business conducted remotely through Aug. 23, 2020.

Your academic goals are of utmost importance to us, as are your safety and well-being. Your coursework will not be interrupted. Our faculty and staff are here for you, and they will continue to provide the same personalized services and educational tools you need to succeed.

Please bear in mind that outdoor gatherings still require strict adherence to social distancing and other public health guidance from the Delaware Division of Public Health and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. It is natural to want to see family and enjoy the warm weather. But please stay safe. As challenging as it is, remember that wearing a mask and avoiding face-to-face contact with others is the best way to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

We will continue to monitor COVID-19 updates and keep our lines of communication open. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
