How do I apply?

What are the requirements for admission?

Applicants are required to have a Bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university. Applicants must complete our simple online application form, which includes submitting contact information for two references, and completing a brief personal statement describing why you are interested in Government Contracting or Program Management.

Can I get financial aid?

Several financial aid options are available for those who qualify. If you are a U.S. citizen or eligible non-citizen and would like to take out Federal student loans to cover costs, you will first need to complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) and have the results sent to UD. Our school code is 003127. Valid FAFSAs will then allow us to create a financial aid award offering.

If your tuition is being funded through the Air Force or another agency, you will need to select your course from the AI Portal and have it approved by your supervisor, who will then notify UD’s Office of Student Accounts. Funds will be sent directly to UD.

If you will receive funding from your employer or organization based on course completion and/or grades, and you would like to defer payments, your employer will need to submit a letter of sponsorship to us. You may then sign up for our Deferment Plan for UD's Employer Reimbursement.
