Stay home when you’re feeling sick. Participate honestly in periodic health screenings. Keep at least 6 feet away from others, both indoors and outdoors. Wear masks or cloth face coverings in classrooms, laboratories and all common areas; masks should be worn outdoors when a 6-foot separation may not be possible, such as walking on The Green or riding public transportation. Wash/sanitize your hands frequently, cover your cough and practice good personal hygiene. Additional detailed guidance is available for employees.
Working with the Delaware Emergency Management Agency, the University has served as a pilot site to provide COVID-19 tests to University employees as well as members of the general public. The University will continue to work with DEMA and other public health agencies to provide additional periodic testing opportunities on campus. The process for testing students for the fall semester still being finalized and an announcement will be forth coming.
Since the bulk of courses will be delivered online, the density of students and faculty on campus will be significantly lower than normal. For courses requiring in-person instruction, classrooms will be arranged so that students remain at least 6 feet apart. Classrooms, labs and other instructional spaces will be cleaned twice a day; high-touch surfaces will be cleaned more frequently.
For the limited number of students living on campus, UD Residence Life and Housing is developing a comprehensive plan that provides for appropriate social distancing, frequent cleaning of facilities, signage and other steps. This plan will be available before students return to the residence halls.
An enhanced sanitation program will use CDC-approved sanitizers and disinfectants and includes frequent cleaning of all surfaces with special emphasis on high touch areas like tables, chairs, doors and condiment stations. Handwashing and hand-sanitizer stations to promote hand hygiene will be available at dining locations. PPE will be used as much as possible when not eating. Directional signage, arrows and floor markings will promote one-way foot traffic in, out, and through dining locations and to maintain proper social distance where lines can form. Seating inside dining locations will be limited to align with required occupancy limits and to follow social distancing guidelines. Current capacities and wait times for the dining halls will be posted online and near their entrances. Additional outdoor dining areas will be also available on campus.
Are the ventilation systems in campus buildings sufficient to help prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus?
UD’s facilities and health teams are reviewing ventilation systems throughout the University and will take appropriate steps as necessary. There have been no documented cases of COVID-19 spread through recirculating air in an HVAC system.
What steps will be taken when someone either is infected with COVID-19 or thinks they’ve been exposed to someone who has? What’s the difference between isolating, quarantining and self-monitoring?
The University will notify the campus community about positive cases of COVID-19 and will reach out to those who may have been exposed to someone with the virus. Individuals who have tested positive for the virus must be in isolation, staying in one room of their home and using their OWN bathroom. If they need to leave their room, they MUST wear a mask. The University has facilities for students who need to isolate. Individuals who have had direct contact with someone who tested positive will be required to self-quarantine for 14 days. Quarantine means that they will not report to work or class. They should wear a mask at all times when out of their bedroom. Individuals who have had direct contact with someone who tested positive will be required to self-quarantine for 14 days. Quarantine means that they will not report to work or class. They should wear a mask at all times when out of their bedroom. Individuals who believe they have been exposed should self-monitor for 14 days for COVID-19 symptoms including fever, cough, shortness of breath, chills, body aches, loss of smell or taste, diarrhea or abdominal pain.
The University's decisions will be driven by the specific circumstances of a positive case or cases. UD has plans and resources for tracing and the isolation or quarantine of patients, if necessary.
COVID-19 is a new disease, and there is limited information regarding risk factors. Based on currently available CDC information and clinical expertise, older adults (65 or older) and people of any age who have serious underlying medical conditions might be at higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19. See CDC Guidelines. If you need to take extra precautions, requests for accommodations should be made to the Office of Disability Support Services (DSS).
Anyone experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 (including cough, fever and shortness of breath) should self-quarantine. Students on campus should call Student Health Services at 302-831-2226 to discuss their symptoms before visiting in person so that they can be routed most efficiently to appropriate care. Students, faculty and staff off campus should call their healthcare provider.
Yes. The vaccine is still one of the best protections against influenza, and health protocols are designed to minimize the risk of COVID-19 for those getting a flu shot.
Everyone, including students, instructors/faculty, staff and visitors to campus. Face coverings are required items, similar to the way lab goggles are required in all lab settings.
Additional face coverings should be available in certain circumstances. However, those without face coverings will be asked to leave the facility until they have one.
The University is relying on all members of our community, as well as visitors to campus, to help protect themselves and others by complying with the State of Delaware’s requirements and UD’s policies regarding face coverings and other measures. If a student is not wearing a face covering in the classroom, faculty members should ask them to wear one or leave the classroom. To anonymously report non-compliance with the requirements, individuals can use the UD Compliance Hotline or the LiveSafe App.
Students will be provided with face coverings, which they should wash regularly. Faculty and staff who do not have their own face covering may contact UD Environmental Health & Safety at 302-831-8475 or email@example.com to obtain one.
Cloth face coverings should be washed after every use. More information is available from the CDC.
Will clear plastic barriers be installed in classrooms to separate faculty and students? Can faculty wear plastic face shields when teaching?
Clear plastic barriers will not be installed in classrooms; they will be installed in high-traffic areas such as the library information desk and Student Financial Services building. The use of a plastic face shield does not replace the need to wear a face covering.
Students can contact the Center for Counseling & Student Development at (302) 831-2141 or (302) 831-1001 for after-hours emergencies. Faculty and staff may contact the Employee Assistance Program within Human Resources at (302) 831-2171 and/or their health care provider.
Classes will begin on Tuesday, September 1 with the bulk of our academic courses delivered online. Classes will remain in the original Monday/Wednesday/Friday and Tuesday/Thursday weekly schedule; classes will be held at our regular daily scheduled times. Course schedules for continuing students who have already registered will remain unchanged; most or all courses will be online. Select courses that academic departments have designated as requiring an in-person component will go fully online after the Thanksgiving break, with the last day for any class to meet in-person being Friday, November 20th. All final exams will be online and are scheduled for Saturday, December 12th through Friday, December 18th.
Classes will return to the original Monday/Wednesday/Friday and Tuesday/Thursday weekly schedule; classes will be held at our regular daily scheduled times. The majority of classes will be online and conducted either synchronously or asynchronously.
Does the announcement about fall return apply to students in the Associate in Arts program who do not typically take courses on main campus?
The Associates in Arts Program will move to all online delivery for the Fall 2020 semester.
The Registrar’s Office expects that fall open enrollment will begin on August 10. More details can be found on the Office of the Registrar’s site. http://www1.udel.edu/registrar/course-info-registration/register-for-classes/reghelp.html
All classrooms will be cleaned, marked for social distancing, have decals on floors, and have hand sanitizing and cleaning materials available. Excess chairs/desks will be removed. All classrooms used for in-person teaching will be adequately wired for instruction with options to record using UD Capture Classroom Capture or Zoom.
For the 2020 fall semester, students may take more than 2 UD online courses per semester without submitting a waiver. https://catalog.udel.edu/content.php?catoid=29&navoid=3555#online-course-enrollment-rules
On July 20, 2020, the University of Delaware Faculty Senate passed a resolution to use the modified pass/no credit grading option for the fall 2020 semester. Details will be posted on the website, https://www.udel.edu/home/coronavirus/return/, by Aug. 5.
Yes. Faculty members will be available for virtual office hours.
The UD Bookstore is high encouraging students to place their textbook order online and to have the order shipped to their place of residence/off campus housing before the first day of classes. Shipping will be free for orders over $49. In-store capacity will be limited as lines will be physically distanced and therefore there will be assigned pick-up times for pick-up orders and long waiting times.
Summer instruction continues online.
All undergraduate students who apply for admission for spring or fall 2021 will be considered without submitting SAT or ACT scores. UD graduate programs have a decentralized admissions process, so individual graduate programs have their own admissions and test requirements. All program admissions requirements are available on each individual Graduate Program details webpage, under “Program Admission Requirements”. Please contact the Program contact listed on this webpage to follow up about any testing requirement questions.
When will students know if their courses are online or in-person and therefore if they will be eligible to live on campus?
Based on the information announced on July 22, our anticipated timelines for returning and first-year students are as follows:
- July 29: Course information will be viewable in Courses Search and will reflect the fall 2020 instructional modes: online asynchronous (no set meeting time), online synchronous (set meeting time), or in-person. Returning students will be able to view their updated schedules in WebReg.
- July 30: Provided that Residence Life & Housing is provided the list of returning students registered in F2F classes by July 29, they will send a letter informing returning students with guaranteed housing contracts of their eligibility to live on campus and the actions they need to take.
- August 4: Deadline for returning students to confirm housing if eligible for fall, defer housing to the spring, or request release without fees.
- September 1: First day of classes
- September 1: Full bill payment or 1st payment installment due

More details on course registration can be found on the Office of the Registrar’s site: http://www1.udel.edu/registrar/course-info-registration/register-for-classes/reghelp.html
Do online classes meet online at the originally scheduled class time or is it up to the professor's discretion?
The instructor will determine whether there are scheduled meeting times (synchronous delivery) or if the class will be delivered asynchronously (no set meeting times). Classes meeting synchronously have meeting times published in the class schedule.
UD faculty, instructors and teaching assistants have been working very hard this summer to prepare high-quality online courses for the fall semester. While the class experience will be different, UD’s commitment to academic excellence remains as strong as ever. As a major research university, innovation is at our core, and that includes identifying and delivering the most effective learning experiences for our students.
UD has vast experience in running online programs—22 offered fully online—including the highly ranked Lerner MBA and the Biden School’s Master of Public Administration. Our institutional efforts are being led by these seasoned online instructors, as well as faculty who are leading national experts in online teaching effectiveness. What’s more, UD’s online teaching hub has provided training or consultation to nearly 700 faculty members who will teach in the fall semester. As a result of these efforts, we estimate that faculty have created or refreshed over 1,300 online courses to date, and the number is growing. By September 1, we will train or consult the large majority of the faculty teaching in the fall to enhance their online instruction practices.
Many students have told us they found their online courses this past spring to be effective, appreciating the flexibility and novel approaches to teaching and learning they offered; we expect to build on that for an even better experience this fall.
If I have a face to face class and I'm still not comfortable attending class in person, can I just take the class online?
Students may choose to be completely online, however, the University cannot guarantee that ALL courses will be available fully online. Some courses have essential learning outcomes that include the development of specific hands-on skills (e.g., learning how to draw blood) and require substantial hands-on components that can only be done in the laboratory or studio. Students who are unable to attend these limited courses in person should consider alternative courses for the fall semester. Students in need of accommodations due to an underlying medical condition or disability should work with the Office of Disability Support Services.
Changes to the fall 2020 class schedule will be completed by August 10th. More details can be found on the Office of the Registrar’s site. http://www1.udel.edu/registrar/course-info-registration/register-for-classes/reghelp.html
Students will be able to make schedule changes using WebReg beginning at 9:00 a.m. on Monday, August 10th. Additional information about registration can be found by visiting:http://www1.udel.edu/registrar/course-info-registration/register-for-classes.html.
The University has decided to cancel all winter 2021 (21W) travel study programs, both domestic and international. This decision was informed by discussions with representatives from the Office of the Provost, Office of Risk Management, Student Health Services and others. Even as the University, state and nation carefully prepare to reopen, safe worldwide travel has not yet become feasible, and international cross-border mobility remains limited. The U.S. State Department’s Global Health Advisory site and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), both currently recommend against all non-essential international travel. In addition, the COVID-19 pandemic poses significant challenges to securing safe housing, meals, transportation, classroom space and more for short-term programs. The decision to cancel 21W programs was made now to give students and faculty ample time to plan their academic year.
Fall plans were announced on June 23 and updated on July 21. At this time, UD hopes to be able to offer Winter Session, though there are a number of factors to consider as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve. More information will be shared when details are available.
Yes, students may take up to two consecutive semesters but you must apply for the leave of absence each semester separately. For more information, visit: http://www1.udel.edu/registrar/policies-procedures/withdr-la-timeoff.html.
You can apply to defer your admission for one semester or up to one year. Contact the office of admissions (firstname.lastname@example.org) prior to the start of classes for more information and to initiate the deferral application process. Deferrals are typically approved for students who are undertaking an educationally purposeful gap year or semester (including UD’s Design Your Success certificate program) or in cases involving extenuating circumstances such as medical issues or military deployments.
During this time, the University is allowing up to 6 credits to “float” from the fall semester, allowing a student to take courses at no additional cost during the 2020-21 Winter and/or Summer Sessions. This will allow students who feel challenged by the online learning environment the opportunity to take a lighter course load this fall and then catch up on their credits in a later session. The maximum number of course credits spread across the fall semester and the Winter and/or Summer sessions covered by this provision is 18. So, if a student takes 12 credits in fall, they will have 6 credit hours left to use in winter or summer. If they take 13 credits in the fall, they will have 5 credit hours left to use and so on. If students end up with a floating number of credit hours that do not match the class they'd like to take -- for instance, they have 3 floating credits and want to take a 4-credit class in winter -- they will pay for just 1 credit.
While the delivery of courses may be different, the University is committed to maintaining the high quality of instruction that students expect from UD to earn their degree. UD’s distinguished faculty continue to teach these courses, and the course curricula continue to prioritize the learning outcomes that faculty have established. In fact, the cost for online instruction is actually higher, reflecting the expense of computer equipment, software, instructional technology expertise and other needs. UD has invested significantly in education technology over the summer to ensure that students can continue their academic progress and graduate on time; those higher costs are not being passed on to students.
We are currently reviewing student fees, which will be adjusted based on evaluation of services that we can provide both virtually and in person.
If I am an out-of-state student and am taking all of my classes online. Can’t I just pay in-state tuition?
The University’s in-state tuition rate is lower due to the financial support provided by Delaware taxpayers. UD receives an annual operating appropriation from the state of Delaware, most of which is used to reduce the cost of tuition for Delaware-resident students. This is an investment that the state is making in the University every year to support resident students. This is the same tuition model that is used by publicly supported universities nationwide.
Will the University waive the differential fees charged for students in the Lerner College of Business and Economics, the College of Engineering and the School of Nursing?
The differential fee reflects the significant investment that the University has made and continues to make in faculty expertise, enhanced technology and other resources in those disciplines to optimize student outcomes. Students in those programs continue to benefit from those investments, both during their time at UD and in the labor market after graduation.
Merit scholarships are typically honored with a deferral. Need based aid may require resubmission of the FAFSA if the aid year will change as a result of the deferral.
Yes. Priority for housing will be provided to students who have a guaranteed housing contract and have been identified by their college as needing to be on campus for academic continuity. The student must be participating in a face-to-face (F2F) class or other academic requirement necessitating that they be on the Newark campus, including student teaching or clinicals. Students’ residence hall assignments are being made with a focus on reduced density and decreasing contagion opportunities.
Protocols such as designated interior traffic flow patterns and guidelines on use of shared spaces such as bathrooms and lounges will be enacted to support these efforts.
UD has hired additional custodial staff members to allow for multiple daily cleanings in each hall. The Division of Student Life will provide additional information about the move-in process in the coming weeks. We understand that many individuals will need to make travel arrangements; in these cases Residence Life & Housing will work with families to coordinate move-in plans.
Priority for housing will be provided to students who have a guaranteed housing contract and have been identified by their college as needing to be on campus for academic continuity. This means that the student is participating in a face-to-face class or other academic requirement necessitating that they be on the Newark campus, including student teaching or clinicals.
The Provost’s Office, in coordination with the deans and the registrar, has provided Residence Life & Housing (RLH) with information on students needing to reside on campus for academic continuity. Residence Life & Housing is emailing all upperclassmen (sophomores, juniors and seniors) who applied for on-campus housing about their eligibility to live on campus this fall. They must provide a response by TUESDAY, AUGUST 4 at 5 p.m. We encourage upperclassmen students to check their emails and log in to their "My Housing portal" to respond. https://udel.starrezhousing.com/StarRezPortalX/2C7D2230/1/1/Home-Residence_Life___Hou?UrlToken=8E8D8B0D
First year students will be notified of their eligibility to live on campus on August 4.
Each student will be housed one per room in traditional (students share a community bathroom), suite (students share a bathroom with one other room), and apartment-style buildings (students have either a private bathroom or a shared bathroom). Buildings with Air Conditioning will be utilized first and non-air conditioned spaces used, as needed.
If I change my schedule in August to a class which requires F2F instruction, will I be eligible for housing?
Because of reduced space, only students whose initial registration puts them in a course requiring F2F instruction will be housed. Students who undergo registration changes in August or in September will be provided with on campus housing as space becomes available.
UD and its dining services partner, Aramark, are committed to adapting operations to ensure students who will be on campus in the fall have safe access to a variety of dining options. Students, faculty and staff with meal plans will have access to dine-in at Caesar Rodney Fresh Food Company and Pencader Dining, as well as express to-go options at both locations. The preferred method of dining from all other on-campus food courts, restaurants and coffee shops will be mobile ordering and pick up using the Grubhub app. The Fry Box food truck will be also be available outside Perkins Student Center. On-campus dining locations and their hours are available at www.udel.edu/dining.
What if I am not eligible for housing based on “academic continuity” but I believe I need to live on campus?
Students will have an opportunity to request to live on campus based on needs related to academic success, housing insecurity, or financial aid implications. Because space on campus is expected to be limited, we encourage students to explore other opportunities for housing. Upperclassmen can currently access the exemption form in the My Housing Portal.
If you leave the country, you will be required to quarantine. If you travel domestically, you will only need to self quarantine if you had close contact with someone with COVID-19. The State of Delaware does not currently have quarantine requirements for out-of-state entrants.
Virtual services for the Library will continue until further notice.
The University is not promoting walking on campus or self-guided tours quite yet. We encourage families to register for a virtual presentation and tour online at www.udel.edu/visitUD. Continue to check back for updates about campus tours and visit experiences including self-guided options.
While students will be encouraged to leave the residence halls at Thanksgiving and complete the semester remotely, those who need access to their residence hall assignment and meal plan will have access to them until the end of the semester.
If students must move out of the residence halls at Thanksgiving, will UD offer a partial refund or credit for housing?
Students who choose not to utilize their space or meal plan after Thanksgiving break will not receive a rate adjustment.
You may either defer your housing until spring semester or request release from your contract without incurring any fees.
I am an Upper-Division student. If I am eligible to live on campus this fall, will I get to live in my previously assigned room?
Most students will need to be reassigned to a new space to align with the university’s reduced occupancy efforts and safety measures. You will receive notification of your final assignment via email in mid-August.
We will do our best to keep roommates together in the spring. More information will be communicated in late October about housing for the spring semester.
More information will be communicated in late October about housing for the spring semester.
No. This assignment will only be for the fall semester. ALL students will be required to fully move out themselves and their belongings at the end of the fall semester. This applies to all students including those in apartment-style housing.
I have accommodations through Disability Support Services and need to be on campus but was not identified as eligible to live on campus. What are my options?
Please connect with Disability Support Services as they are the experts on your accommodation and can work with you about any needs you may have for academic success. Their website is www.udel.edu/dss.
No, students placed in a room designed for multiple occupants will not be charged the single room rate but rather the rate they would have been charged had the room been occupied as designed. Please note, these rooms will contain furniture, unused, that can not be removed or storied at any point during the Fall semester. Students who requested a single and are assigned one at their request, will be charged the single room rate.
Move in details are being altered to accommodate for this change of occupancy. Details are expected to be available on Residence Life and Housing's website sometime after August 10th. Move-in is anticipated to begin on August 26th and run through August 30. Students will be given a move-in appointment (date and time) to de-densify the process for all participants.
No guests who live outside of the building will be allowed in the building. Additionally, no overnight guests will be permitted. Students will be required to wear a face covering anytime they are outside of their room.
Students will be required to wear a face covering anytime they are outside of their room.
Yes, all furniture will remain in the room even though the room will be used as a single room.
Custodial Services will clean all public restrooms 2 times per day and all high touch points will be wiped 2 times per day also. Hand sanitizers will be strategically placed throughout the Residence Halls.
Will there be quarantine or isolation spaces available for students if they come down with symptoms or contract COVID-19?
Yes, the University has identified spaces for use if a student needs to be quarantined while awaiting the results of a COVID 19 test; or isolated, if they test positive but do not require medical intervention.
If the University is required to close due to a COVID outbreak resulting in the closing of the residence halls, necessary account adjustments will be made at that time.
The University is asking off-campus landlords to work with student tenants to find mutually agreeable solutions. Yet ultimately, off-campus landlords do not have to follow the guidance of the University. Because landlords/off-campus housing are separate business entities, you/your student will need to communicate with them directly with concerns.
All students living in a traditional on-campus residence hall will be required to purchase one of the available on-campus meal plans and will be automatically assigned and billed for the 14 Weekly plan. Once on campus, students can choose to keep the 14 Weekly or change their plan to another on-campus meal plan. Students who will be living off campus or in University Courtyard, One Easton and family housing are not required to purchase a meal plan, but still have the option to sign up for one. Meal plan add-ons for all meal plan holders will also be available from off-campus partners’ Good Uncle, for food delivery on and off campus, and Home Chef, for cook-at-home meal kits. To learn more about meal plans, you can visit www.udel.edu/dining/mealplans.
Dining Services will have several safe solutions available. Our chefs and registered dietitian are trained and eager to assist with any concerns you may have. You should connect with Debbi Miller, R.D., L.D.N., by email at email@example.com to learn more about the dining options that fit your needs.
On July 17, the CAA Football Conference Board of Directors announced its decision to suspend conference competition for the upcoming 2020 football season.
We have also made the difficult decision to postpone all fall sports in addition to football. We believe that the complexity of managing a complete competitive season (practice, home and away competitions, travel, etc.) was going to create significant risk to the health and safety of our people and to our campus.
Staff should continue to work remotely to the extent possible for the foreseeable future; however, there are exceptions for employees who must be on campus to provide critical work functions. Prior to anyone returning to campus, approval from the unit’s senior leader (President, Provost, VP, Vice President for Research) must be granted.
Faculty and staff who need one-time access to their offices will be allowed to do so for 30 minutes by appointment. Requests should be submitted to their Dean or Vice President, who will submit them to the Provost’s Office for review.
No, the policy will not change. Supervisors are encouraged to work with their employees to identify flexible work arrangements as needed.
Yes, the hiring freeze remains in effect until further notice. Exceptions may be appropriate in limited strategic areas, and in support of our principles to support specific critical needs, including safety and academic continuity. Few exceptions will be approved.
All University travel is currently suspended. When safe travel can resume, only essential travel will be permitted, including essential academic travel, travel on sponsored research funds, travel funded entirely by outside entities and travel necessary to deliver instruction or outreach programs or to conduct vital University activities or business.
Faculty will work with their department chairs with regard to in-person versus online teaching. No faculty members will be required to teach in person if they have legitimate reasons for not doing so. These include age, underlying health conditions, caregiver responsibilities, etc. Privacy concerns of faculty members will be respected. An ADA form is not necessary when a faculty member and a department chair can work out the teaching assignment to meet the faculty member’s needs.
An ADA form is necessary when (1) there is a dispute between the faculty member and the department chair and/or (2) the faculty member elects to use the form at the outset (mainly for privacy reasons).
We recommend staff bring any food in coolers with ice packs to eat at their desks, in order to cut down on the need for using the refrigerator and being in close proximity. When using shared equipment, employees should wipe it down with appropriate sanitizing wipes following use.

I had to cancel my vacation plans due to COVID-19. Will my excess vacation balance be forfeited at the end of the year?
No. Effective July 1, 2020, the vacation accrual limits outlined in the Vacation Accrual and Use Policy have been temporarily suspended through December 31, 2021. Eligible employees will be permitted to carry over vacation leave in excess of the limits outlined in the policy. Any excess vacation leave will not be forfeited until January 1, 2022.
