University of Delaware1Delaware has many great in-state college options! 

The table below links to the application pages for each of Delaware’s colleges and universities. If you plan to apply out of state, you’ll need to go to their homepages and look for the “Apply Now” or “Admissions” link.

You also may want to consider using The Common Application, which is accepted by nearly 500 colleges and universities.

Many colleges require an application fee at the time of application submission. Some will automatically waive the fee if you apply online while others will accept a deferral or waiver, both of which must be signed by your high school counselor. Download a copy of the NACAC waiver, which can be used nationally for those who meet the eligibility requirements, for each school to which you plan to apply!

Student Excellence Equals Degree Program (SEED)

The SEED (Student Excellence Equals Degree) Program, offers free tuition at either Delaware Technical Community College (DTCC) or the University of Delaware’s Associate in Arts Program. Through SEED, you will complete two years at DTCC tuition-free and then you could complete a BA/BS degree at another Delaware college if you choose. You can also use SEED to enroll at the University of Delaware’s Associate in Art’s Program (AAP). Since you are already a UD student, you complete your AA degree and then transition to the Newark campus and complete your BA/BS degree. Certain eligibility requirements are reviewed to be considered for this program, including a 2.5 GPA, and students must maintain their academic record each year to remain in the SEED Program. For more information please see the brochure at the bottom of this page.

The Inspire Program is available to Delaware high school graduates with excellent credentials to attend Delaware State University. The intent of this program is to offset the cost of tuition, thereby increasing the number of Delawareans who attend college and complete degree programs.
