For Delaware families, the Commitment to Delawareans meets full demonstrated financial need and caps student loans at 25 percent of the cost of a four-year degree. This program benefits nearly 2,800 students from Delaware.
UD continues to win recognition as a "best value" institution based on metrics of quality and affordability. Earlier this year, The Princeton Review identified UD as one of 75 "best value" public institutions of higher education, based on academics, cost and financial aid. In addition, Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine selected UD as one of 100 “four-year institutions that combine outstanding education with economic value." Kiplinger's cited UD's "high four-year graduation rate, low average student debt at graduation, abundant financial aid, a low sticker price and overall great value."
