Clifton Campus welcomes Wilmington College Cincinnati; Open House Jan. 28-31

Cincinnati State's Clifton Campus is the new home of Wilmington College Cincinnati.

President Monica Posey said the College is happy to welcome the Wilmington team to their office in Main 181 (formerly the Admissions Office).

Dr. Posey said, "Cincinnati State and Wilmington College have been great transfer partners for over 15 years. Locating the Wilmington College Cincinnati office in unused space in the Main Building provides a convenient option for students, and rental revenue for Cincinnati State."

Provost Robbin Hoopes said, "Wilmington College's presence on Clifton Campus is part of Cincinnati State's overall plan to provide access to a variety of 4-year college and university partners on our campus.”

"However, Wilmington College and Cincinnati State remain independent educational institutions," Provost Hoopes added.

  • Wilmington College Cincinnati has served adult and non-traditional students for more than 30 years, and has over 2100 graduates.
  • More than 400 Cincinnati State graduates have earned Wilmington bachelor’s degrees in accounting, business administration, strategic organizational leadership, education studies, or multimedia studies.
  • Prior to moving to Cincinnati State, Wilmington's Cincinnati Office was located in Blue Ash.

"We are happy to have our operations on Cincinnati State's campus," said Sharron Colon, Wilmington's Associate Director for External Programs. "We greatly appreciate the excitement and support we have received from everyone at Cincinnati State."

From Tuesday, Jan. 28, through Friday, Jan. 31, Cincinnati State employees are invited to an Open House hosted by Wilmington College Cincinnati in Main 181.

  • Office hours are Monday through Thursday from 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. The office phone number is 569-4580.
  • Open house visitors can check out the space (see photo below), and grab a light snack and some Wilmington College swag.

Wilmington staff and faculty members with offices in Main 181 are:

  • Sylvia Stevens, Vice President for External Programs
  • Will Bradley, Academic Advising and Financial Aid Director
  • Sheila Corcoran, Academic Records Specialist
  • Charlie Dick, Associate Professor of Accounting
  • Bernie Matt, Professor of Religion and Philosophy and English
  • Brian Snowden, Assistant Professor of Business Administration

Sharron Colon will continue to be based in the Cincinnati State Transfer Center (ATLC 221) with the same office hours as the WC Cincinnati main office: Monday-Thursday, 9:30 a.m.-6 p.m. and Friday, 9:30 a.m.-4 p.m.

Cincinnati State students interested in continuing their education at Wilmington should talk to Sharron in the Transfer Center, but prospective Wilmington students also can be assisted in Main 181.

Wilmington College also is using several dedicated classrooms on the third floor of the Main Building from 5 to 10 p.m. Monday-Friday and on Saturday mornings.

If you see confused Wilmington students looking for their classes, please direct them to Main Bldg. rooms 353 through 358, located on the hallway past the IT Services Walk-Up Help Window.
