Putting Delawareans First

Commitment to Delawareans

The University of Delaware is committed to providing an affordable, top-quality education to the residents of our state. Historically, close to 86% of Delawareans who apply are admitted to UD, with approximately 65% gaining a place on our main campus and approximately 25% are admitted to the University’s Associate in Arts Program. 

Delawareans who apply for admission by the deadline of January 15, can be confident they will never compete with non-Delawareans for spaces at the University.

The best way to learn about UD's community


Test-Optional Admissions Policy

A new pilot program will give Delaware residents the ability to choose whether or not to submit their SAT/ACT scores as a part of their admission application. The program begins for those applying to enter UD in fall 2017.

We encourage all students to take the SAT/ACT seriously and do their best. The College Board's entire suite of assessments, along with free test prep from Khan Academy, is a valuable tool to improve college readiness.

Admissions Guidelines


First in Financial Accessibility

Our aim is to make a UD education affordable to all qualified residents of our state. Under our Commitment to Delawarean's Program we pledge to ensure financial aid is available to meet the full demonstrated financial need — up to the cost of in-state tuition, fees, a stipend for books, and on-campus room and board — of all Delawareans who file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by the deadline. Understanding how important it is to leave college with as little debt as possible, our goal is that no student will have loans in excess of 25% of the cost of a 4-year education.

This means a qualified student can attend the University with the assurance that their family will not be asked to contribute more than their Expected Family Contribution (EFC) as determined by the FAFSA. While students are asked to invest in their education by borrowing 25% of costs in loans each year (or pay if they decline to borrow). Our goal is to ensure that students graduate with debt that is manageable and the earning potential from their bachelor's degree far outweighs, over time, what they are responsible to pay back. The University commits grants and scholarships that will be made available to cover their remaining financial need.

For an individualized estimate of the financial aid you may expect from the University, please refer to our Net Price Calculator.

Dual Enrollment Program: Associate in Arts Program and the Margaret H. Rollins School of Nursing

Beebe Healthcare's Margaret H. Rollins School of Nursing and the University of Delaware have partnered in a new program designed to provide an educational pathway for nursing students in Sussex County through UD's Associate in Arts Program at their Georgetown Campus. 

Beginning fall 2017, students will dually enroll in the Margaret H. Rollins School of Nursing and in the UD Associate in Arts Program (AAP). They will earn both a Diploma in Nursing and an Associate in Arts degree. After successful completion of the Diploma program, students can work as a registered nurse while earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing.

For more information, please contact either the School of Nursing at (302) 645-3251, or the University of Delaware at (302) 831-8123.
