    Get your course syllabus online before your class begins using Canvas. Access Canvas via 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.

    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 or Verify Your Online Identity

    To safeguard your identity, our campuses, and our technology, it's important that we verify your identity. A WilmU ID card is required for access to all campus buildings and grounds, or an online identity verification meeting is required for online-only courses and services. You will need a government-issued identification card (valid driver's license, state ID card or passport) with you to obtain your WilmU ID card or verify your online identity.

  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.
