UD Sinclair Academy


As a UD Sinclair Academy student, you're part of the UD and Sinclair communities from day one. Here, you'll find resources to help you prepare to join the Academy — and make it a successful, rewarding experience.

Each UD Sinclair Academy student, future or current, has responsibilities throughout every step of the process. The following list includes some of those responsibilities.

  • Apply to Sinclair College if you have not done so (If you are a current Sinclair student, you do not need to reapply. Sinclair College Credit Plus student will not need to reapply to Sinclair).
  • Attend the UD Sinclair Academy orientation program offered through UD.
  • Contact and meet with your academic adviser from both Sinclair and UD to register for courses every semester. Missing an appointment can lead to a withdrawal from the UD Sinclair Academy program.
  • Bring your MAP (My Academic Plan) from Sinclair to your academic advising appointment at UD.
  • Print and save your pathway major document before you make your first advising appointment with UD and Sinclair advisers.
  • Stay focused on the courses prescribed in the pathway major documents. If you are taking courses outside the pathway document, please consult with your UD academic adviser right away.
  • Earn a minimum 2.0 cumulative GPA at the time of transition from Sinclair to UD.  
  • Connect with other UD Sinclair Academy students who are attending Sinclair.
  • Take care of any existing holds from UD before you begin in the UD Sinclair Academy. The most common hold includes a Health Center hold. If you are planning to use the RecPlex at UD, you will need to take care of this hold.
  • Once you transition to UD, your course load each semester will be at a full-time load. If you plan to work, share your plan with your employer and academic advisers earlier so you can plan ahead.
