Tasks & Forms

Student Loan Requirements

First-time federal loan borrowers at the UD are required to complete the Master Promissory Note and Entrance Counseling prior to having the Federal Direct Student Loan pay to the student account.  Students who have borrowed previously may be asked to complete Financial Awareness Counseling (FACT) each year as well.  Finally, students who drop below half-time enrollment or who graduate should complete Exit Counseling.  Links to these loan requirements are found below.

Student Health Insurance Requirement

UD requires that all full-time students are covered by health insurance and has partnered with University Health Plans to provide health insurance for those students who need it.  All full-time students are billed health insurance, but students who are covered already by an equivalent plan may waive this coverage.  For these students, UD will provide an offsetting credit to cover the health insurance charge.
