Changes to deposit deadline for fall 2024

May 15 for admitted students

Due to the unprecedented delays in the U.S. Department of Education’s release of financial information for those students who completed their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), the University of Delaware has extended the traditional May 1 deposit deadline to May 15 for all admitted students.

The University will also grant students extensions when requested, so students waiting for aid notifications can make an informed decision about whether UD is the right choice for them in the fall.

Admitted students are encouraged to place their deposit and secure their spot in the Class of 2028 as soon as possible. This will ensure that students meet all subsequent deadlines, including registering for housing, signing up for New Student Orientation, and many other next steps in the spring and summer.

For those students who need more time, especially those who expect to receive federal aid as a result of completing the FAFSA, UD will continue to grant extensions to admitted students who email admissions@udel.edu. As the delayed release of FAFSA information from the Department of Education is an ongoing issue, the University hopes that students can make their college choice within a few weeks of receiving their full financial aid package, which most students should receive in the coming weeks.
