Anyone may participate in Summer Sessions. Registration in Summer Sessions neither requires nor implies admission to the University of Delaware. There are some courses which are designed for special student populations. Such courses may have enrollment restrictions or give preference to certain registrants. Students are advised to read the notes in the course listing section of this site, and to register early since courses are assigned on a first-come first-served basis subject to registration restrictions.
This booklet contains certain information which relates only to the Summer Sessions. Additional information about the University of Delaware can be found in the current editions of the University Catalog, and the Student Guide to University Policies. The University reserves the right to withdraw any course, to limit enrollment, or to change instructors, class meeting times, or locations.

Once you have received your Certificate of Eligibility letter, please submit a copy of the letter, and the completed UD Veterans Educational Benefits Enrollment Data Form to UD's Veterans Services Office. Once all of the required documents are received, UD's VA Certifying Official will electronically submit a 22-1999 enrollment certification to the VA to initiate payments.

The web [www.udel.edu/library] of the University of Delaware Library is accessible globally and was recently redesigned. The redesigned Library web is the place to begin using the Library online and it provides thousands of links to all types of information including access to DELCAT Discovery, databases, electronic journals and newspapers, electronic books, Research Guides, finding aids for Special Collections and many other types of information and services.
DELCAT Discovery [delcat.worldcat.org] is a new online, cloud-based service that provides information about and access to the physical and electronic holdings of the University of Delaware Library. (It supersedes the online catalog DELCAT.) DELCAT Discovery was implemented in mid-2014 and includes information about the Library collection and also provides links to electronic journals, electronic books and other resources. A user can limit searches to only those items physically held by the Library or a search can be done of the entire WorldCat database that encompasses over 320 million titles in over 72,000 libraries throughout the world. Items held by the University of Delaware Library appear at or near the top of the results display. Items not held by the Library can be requested via the interlibrary loan link that automatically generates an interlibrary loan request.
More than 370 licensed databases are provided by the University of Delaware Library for use by students, faculty and staff. Each database allows searching of many thousands of publications at once. Many databases are general in nature and cover virtually all disciplines, and others are specific subject-oriented. Some databases are "full text" and include entire articles and some databases include citations and summaries. The Library web [www.udel.edu/library] provides a direct link to "Databases." Remote access to licensed databases is available only to University of Delaware students, faculty and staff.
The University of Delaware Library subscribes (in addition to over 1,500 print journals and newspapers) to over 70,000 electronic journals which cover all disciplines and are licensed for use by University of Delaware students, faculty and staff.

The Library web [www.udel.edu/library] provides a link to electronic journals and electronic books.
Numerous electronic services are offered by the University of Delaware Library. Examples of electronic services are:
The University of Delaware Library has an Institutional Repository called "UDSpace" which uses open source software to capture, store, index, preserve and redistribute the intellectual output of the University of Delaware original research of faculty and staff in digital form including technical reports, scholarly articles, working papers, conference papers, images and more.

The Center offers the space, software, equipment and expertise for all steps of multimedia creation and for practicing presentations. The Student Multimedia Design Center with its focus on multimedia creation is the largest such facility in an academic research library in the nation.
