The University of Delaware has a two-semester academic calendar,
but offers two "Special Sessions" each year as
Summer Sessions and the
are both optional terms - they are not required for
the completion of any undergraduate degree. They do, however,
offer an uncommon degree of flexibility for matriculated,
visiting, and Continuing Education students to get the courses
they want on the schedule they want. Most of the courses meet on the
Newark campus, but there are a number of programs that involve travel
within the U.S. as well.
Participation in the Summer and Winter Sessions neither requires nor implies admission to the University of Delaware. Anyone who wishes to take courses in these terms is most welcome to do so.
Winter Session is a term spanning approximately 5-weeks between the Fall and Spring semesters. It begins two weeks after the end of Fall exams, and will run Jan. 6 - Feb. 8, 2014. Registration for Winter begins October 28. Preliminary information about Winter-2014, is online now. More details will be added until the Registration Booklet for the upcoming Winter will be complete and available both online and in printed form by the start of the Fall semester. Meanwhile, the complete details of last Winter (2013) are also still online and would be representative of the upcoming Winter session.
The Summer is comprised of two sessions. The First Session of Summer 2013 began June 3 and the Second Session begins July 8. Most classes meet daily for 5-weeks. There are also a number of First Session classes that meet for 7½ -weeks. The typical schedule for those 7½ week classes is to meet two evenings per week.
Complete details about summer courses and registration are online now, and are available in print at the Student Services Building, at the Visitor Center, all College advisement offices and at Associate of Arts program sites in Wilmington, Dover and Georgetown. Registration began April 1 and continues through the start of each class.
