Why Wilkes University Online

For more than 80 years, Wilkes has been dedicated to the success of our students through academic excellence, educational access and return on investment.

What Makes Wilkes University Unique? 

Wilkes’ campus is beautiful. The lush green grass, blooming trees and sturdy, brick buildings make it a picturesque university. How does that translate to our online learning experience? The type of students and actual faculty members who congregate in that grass, under those trees and within those lecture halls are the same you’ll be interacting with, and learning from, in every course. It’s the people who make Wilkes what it is: A small university that offers big opportunities, and that’s just as true on its virtual campus.
