A Smart Investment 

UD is consistently ranked as one of the best values in higher education. UD students are more likely to earn higher salaries than their peers on graduation.  



Starting in their first year, students work with the Career Services Center to set a career path and build professional connections in preparation for life after graduation. Six months after graduation, 91.5% of our students are employed, in the military or service program, or pursuing further education.
