For most of your academic career, grades have been the all-deciding factor when it comes to measuring accomplishment. While Wilkes University is far from a non-grade institution, our educational approach is designed to focus on the bigger picture. That is, we view academia as a tool, not as ink on a résumé. You'll take classes taught by teachers and professors genuinely interested in your personal growth and success. That means you'll have the support, guidance and encouragement to find the course of study that best capitalizes on your abilities, while being encouraged to explore those skills through practical, hands-on experiences. This unique approach to education is invaluable, yet surprisingly affordable.
