Consumer Information

At Wilkes University, we want you to make an informed decision to attend our University.

Many government agencies mandate that colleges and universities throughout the United States provide various types of consumer information to the students, prospective students, and (in some cases) the general public. We take pride in providing you not only the information required by federal law, but also additional useful information and disclosures on various aspects of our University. Therefore, we have gathered this material by category into a number of detailed web pages. These pages are linked below.

Of course, if you need more information or explanations, our staff is ready to help. Please contact any staff member in the Student Services Center for assistance with any of this information. Also, for detailed information about financial aid eligibility and programs, please visit the Financial Aid Home Page.
