Dear Current and Future Students,
I am excited to announce that Wiley College will resume on-campus operations starting with our annual Summer Bridge program for first-year students and all students for Fall 2021.
Our Summer Bridge program for first-year students begins on June 21st, and the fall semester begins on August 2nd for all students. Do not forget to complete your admissions process, submit your financial aid documents, register for your courses, and submit your housing application. Submitting your documents timely will prevent any delays in your process. First-year -student move in day will be held on July 28th, and returning student move-in day will be held on July 31st. Several virtual orientation sessions will be held during the summer to prepare our new students for life at Wiley. We have diligently prepared for your return by implementing processes that are in alignment with COVID protocols and CDC guidelines. More information will be distributed at a later date via email and our social media.
Also, we want to provide additional support for our students who were unable to complete their education at Wiley due to financial constraints. We are offering debt forgiveness owed to the College for currently enrolled and past students who have a current balance and have not completed their degree. To be eligible for the program, you must qualify for federal financial aid, register full-time for fall 2021 and graduate from Wiley College. Those who are not currently enrolled must apply for Readmission to the College.
For more information regarding College debt forgiveness, call the Office of Student Accounts at (903) 927-3207. If you have any questions relating to readmission, call (903) 927-3311. If you need anything, reach out to your academic advisor, financial aid advisor, or student organization advisor, and someone will surely assist you.
To all of our graduates, I can’t wait to celebrate with you in person on May 1st! I encourage you to consistently review any communication sent to you through email and posted on the Commencement website.
Please be mindful that your graduation will be held outside and to follow all directives given regarding proper attire, mask-wearing, and social distancing for your safety.
If you are still considering Wiley, please know you won’t go wrong by choosing us as your extended family! We are a premier liberal arts institution with an intentional focus on social good and leadership. We are the most affordable accredited historically black college in Texas. We offer 17 academic programs, an award-winning A Capella choir, championship athletic teams, and leadership development programs to support your future community building and activism.
