Would I be a first-year or transfer student if I start in spring?

If you're not enrolled in a degree program at another college or university, you will be considered a first-year student.

What scholarships am I eligible for?

Students starting in the spring are eligible for the same scholarships and grants as students who enroll in the fall semester.

Does starting in spring impact the four-year tuition plan?

Students who start in the spring semester are still eligible for our four-year tuition plan, which provides a transparent four-year overview of your costs, regardless of which semester you begin at UD.

When will I receive my admission decision, scholarship notification and financial aid offer?

You will receive this information by January 1.

Are any parts of the UD experience different if I start in spring?

No. The experience of spring-start students is very similar. You will participate in orientation, be placed in University housing and be able to fully participate in clubs and organizations. Additionally, your academic adviser will help you plan your courses over your four years.
