Delaware SEED Scholarship Program 

All students in the Associate in Arts Program receive dedicated advisement and academic support services. Students benefit from a low-cost education, close to home, with lots of personal attention. An AA degree can be a valuable intermediate goal, leading to a baccalaureate degree. Like all UD students, AAP graduates are eligible to pursue degrees in any of the University’s seven undergraduate colleges.  Coursework can be used to fulfill requirements to allow students to stay “on track” for a number of majors – with the exception of “highly structured programs” such as engineering or athletic training.

Areas of Study

  • Arts & Humanities
  • Business
  • Elementary & Early Childhood Education
  • Environmental Studies
  • Life & Health Sciences
  • Physical & Applied Sciences
  • Social Sciences

Career options

Associate in Arts Program graduates can pursue majors and careers across all disciplines, including:

  • Teacher
  • Fraud Analyst
  • Project Manager
  • Management Trainee
  • Copy editor
  • Nutritionist

What’s special about this program?

As an Associate in Arts Program student you will benefit from substantially lower tuition.  Eligible AAP students can take advantage of the state of Delaware’s Student Excellence Equals Degree (SEED) scholarship and pay no tuition during the fall and spring semesters in the program.  Enjoy small classes – with no classes more than 35 students.  Receive close advisement from full-time professional academic advisors who will help you prepare for your intended major of study.

Get Involved

Associate in Arts Program students are encouraged to attend sporting, cultural, and social events in Newark just like their Newark campus peers. AAP students can use the Morris Library or the Bob Carpenter Sports Center in Newark; they can join UD’s registered student organizations; and they qualify for student rates at UD theatre, music, or art events.  AAP students have the option to participate in study abroad, alternative spring break, and other programs offered on the Newark campus.
