To apply for the entrepreneurship program, you must be a business student or a student who will be fully transferred to the School of Business Administration by the beginning of the next fall semester.  You must be in your freshman year applying before the start of your sophomore year, and a GPA of 2.7 or above is required to apply.

The online application consists of two steps and involves answering a series of questions. The first part of the application asks for your personal and contact information along with questions about Entrepreneurial activities you might have already engaged in. The second is a series of questions designed to help us learn more about your knowledge of entrepreneurship and any entrepreneurial experience you might have.

The application MUST be completed in its entirety in one sitting. You cannot save the application and come back to finish it later. You can, however, use cut/paste to formulate your answers in Word then insert them into the application. Please make sure all questions are answered completely! Some things you will be asked to provide for the application are:

  • Complete home and campus contact information
  • Your ACT composite or SAT verbal and math scores
  • GPA after your first semester freshman year at UD
  • Other majors you are considering if double majoring
  • Why you wish to study entrepreneurship

The Admissions Committee looks at the entire record of each applicant and focuses on a variety of criteria (e.g., academic performance, understanding of and commitment to entrepreneurship, etc.) before making a decision. Applicants may be required to interview in person as well to gain further insights and assess interpersonal skills. If admitted, you will be asked to sign up for a LinkedIn account to enable us to create groups as necessary and to help you network with our ENT alumni.

Please note that admission to the Entrepreneurship major has become increasingly selective. We reserve the right to limit incoming class size due to space and other resource limitations. Conditional acceptance letters will be sent to accepted students prior to fall registration.

By applying to the ENT major, students are agreeing to abide by ENT program rules in all respects if they are admitted. That includes understanding that the ENT program is a 3-year, cohorted, lockstep program.

If you have questions about the application, please email or call 937-229-3127.
