POLICY

  • All eligible full-time employees may register for one course each term or semester without payment of course fees at Delaware State University or Delaware Technical and Community College. A reciprocal arrangement is available to eligible employees of Delaware State and Del Tech for courses at the University of Delaware. This program is not transferable to a spouse/same-sex domestic partner or dependent child.

Enrollment in the course must not displace a regular tuition paying student from the class nor add appreciable costs to the offering institution.
