    Get your course syllabus online before your class begins using Canvas. Access Canvas via the toolbar in myWilmU.

    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.

  3. 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.

  4. Get Your WilmU ID Card

    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 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.

  5. Get to Campus Early

    Parking lots at some of our locations fill quickly during the first two weeks of the semester or block. Be sure to arrive early to allow for plenty of time to get to class.
