Plan Your Visit

A campus visit is the best way to learn about UD's unique community.


Why transfer?

Sometimes that was always the plan—to save a little money and get accustomed to the rigor of college before attending a flagship institution.

Which of my course credits will transfer to UD? 

Check out our Transfer Credit Matrix, which contains thousands of course equivalents from more than 800 institutions. The Matrix is also a useful tool for you when registering for additional courses at your current college. The UD Transfer Credit Matrix is an organic document, with representatives from UD's Office of the Registrar regularly working with students and UD faculty to evaluate and post University of Delaware course equivalents from other institutions. Therefore, if one of your courses is not listed, it generally means it has not been evaluated yet. Faculty may require you to supply a course description and a syllabus in order to have it approved.
