Wilkes University offers a full schedule of day classes during the fall and spring semesters. Evening, summer, intersession, and accelerated classes accommodate schedules of traditional and non-traditional full- and part-time students who cannot attend day classes or classes offered during the regular semester periods. A number of online courses and hybrid courses, which combine online learning with periodic classroom meetings and discussions, provide additional scheduling flexibility for traditional and non-traditional students.
Wilkes University welcomes part-time undergraduate students into all of its regular sessions and has established the Evening schedule to maximize scheduling possibilities for students who are not able to attend day classes. Evening courses generally meet one or two nights per week during the academic year and two nights per week during the nine-week summer Evening Session.
If seating is available, non-degree students may be admitted to classes for which they are qualified by virtue of their maturity, educational background, or work experience. Secondary school training is desirable, but not required, provided the student is qualified to meet the requirements for enrollment and the rigors of the academic course work involved. Direct all inquiries pertaining to continued learning opportunities to the Admissions Office at (570) 408-4400.
These flexible campus classroom and online offerings in a variety of disciplines provide the greatest possible flexibility of scheduling for full-time undergraduate students and enable graduates of accredited two-year institutions and returning non-traditional students to complete baccalaureate degrees in certain majors by taking courses beyond the regular daytime class meeting hours.
Full- and part-time undergraduate students should consult with their academic advisors concerning the various course formats and scheduling options and review the Schedule of Courses published each semester by the Office of the Registrar. Returning, non-degree seeking, and non-traditional students should direct inquiries to the Admissions Office at (570) 408-4400.
