UArts and DCAD Students

You are welcome at UD

The closures of Delaware College of Art and Design and the University of the Arts in Philadelphia have left many bright and creative students with a great deal of uncertainty about how to complete their education and explore their artistic practice. 


The University of Delaware is committed to providing a smooth transition and an accessible college education for all transfer students as well as those beginning their college experience in the fall.


Here at UD, our students explore their passions in a supportive environment with a dedicated faculty of practicing musicians, artists, designers, actors, dancers and educators.
