More information

The University of Delaware offers two transfer transitions seminars for newly admitted students each fall and spring semester. Students select the appropriate seminar based on the college they enroll in. Both seminars have the same purpose – to assist new transfer students in acclimating to the UD campus. Time is spent on academic planning, career planning, learning about UD academic policies and practices, as well as how to become engaged on campus.


This Registered Student Organization (RSO) provides a great opportunity for you to get involved at UD – it offers a way to connect you to other transfer students and enhance your college experience and leadership skills. You can find the contact information for TSA board members on Student Central.


The University of Delaware recognizes the unique needs of commuter students – who may also be transfer students. Campus resources include the Dean of Students office, as well as the Blue Hen Commuter Program (BHCP) which is a campus registered student organization. Students who become members of the BHCP will become part of a new community on campus working to provide a comfortable environment and home for commuter students.
