Students who are not in the Honors Program and have grade point indices of 3.0 or higher may request an open seat in an Honors course. Please see the Honors Course Information page at
www.udel.edu/honors/registration to learn more about registering for an Honors course. Further information on the UD Honors Program is available at the UDHP office at 186 South College Ave., by phone at (302) 831-1195, and online at www.udel.edu/honors.

Undergraduate Research Program

University faculty accept undergraduates as their assistants or junior members of their research teams in the belief that unusually well-motivated students should be given the chance, while they are still beginners, to see and have a part in what is happening at the frontiers of knowledge.
        The Undergraduate Research Program helps interested students and faculty to meet and discuss apprenticeship possibilities. Most students earn academic credit for the apprenticeships; qualified work-study students may earn grant money doing research. Projects are available in all University departments and areas of research. The Undergraduate Research Program also administers the senior thesis program for the Degree with Distinction. For further information, see:
urp.udel.edu
For assistance in locating a project, visit the Undergraduate Research Program, 180 South College Avenue, (302) 831-8995, or email undergradresearch@udel.edu.
