Division of Enrollment Management

Division of Enrollment Management

University of Delaware's Division of Enrollment Management (DEM) serves prospective and current students and their families, assisting with issues related to admission, transfer, registration, matriculation, financial aid, scholarships, and billing.

Comprised of three departments (Undergraduate Admissions, Student Financial Services, and University Registrar), DEM has a mission to lead and support University-wide initiatives focused on student recruitment, enrollment, and retention.  The Division's vision is to promote diversity, inclusivity, and a community-centered environment that reflects the University's values.

DEM provides ongoing analysis of the characteristics and behaviors of current, prospective, and former students to improve and enhance UD's competitive market position and prominence, to increase capacity, and to achieve strategic enrollment goals related to quality, quantity, access, and success.

Enrollment Services Contact Center

The Enrollment Services Contact Center serves as the frontline of customer service for all the departments in the Division.  The contact center answers questions from UD students and families via telephone and email.

2021 DEM Leadership Team Retreat

The leadership team gathered this summer to focus on the division's goals and discuss continual improvements to service for UD students.

Hats Off!

DEM is pleased to congratulate Admissions' own Lisa Prescott for being named PCACAC (Potomac Chesapeake Association for College Admission Counseling) Counselor of the Year!  This award recognizes PCACAC members who go above and beyond in their work with students, and selection considers areas of expertise, impact on constituents, advocacy for students and colleagues, commitment to equity, thoroughness, and innovation.


Lisa was humbled and proud to receive the award, as well as surprised by the nomination.  Her 17 years in the UD Admissions Office includes a growing territory from areas of New Jersey to a large portion of Pennsylvania, her "home turf."  She also works with local schools in New Castle County.  Her main focus in the office now is serving as the liaison with Athletics, both D1 and some club sports, as well as helping with Event Planning.


Please join us in giving Lisa a virtual pat on the back for her job so well done and this incredibly deserved recognition of her dedicated efforts.

Among Univeristy of Delaware alumni are three signers of the Declaration of Independence, a signer of the U.S. Constitution, a Nobel Prize-winning scientist, a Tony Award-winning choreographer, a First Lady of the United States, and the 46th President of the United States.

The private academy from which UD grew was founded in 1743, making it one of the oldest in the nation, and UD was chartered as an institution of higher learning in 1833.  Historian John Munroe touted UD's original class was "possibly the most distinguished in terms of the later achievements of its members, taken as a whole, of any class in any school in America."  Those first students would go on to become statesmen, doctors, merchants, and scholars.
