InfoBration Materials

Information for AT2/AT3 Students Graduating from AT and Starting UD

If you meet your AT graduation requirements and want to graduate and start UD this spring, you MUST attend InfoBration, the final meeting for graduating students.
If you don’t come to InfoBration, you have not officially graduated from AT!

The (invented) name “InfoBration” comes from Information and Celebration–we want to congratulate you and celebrate your achievements, but help you complete all the essential steps you need to take to leave the ELI and start UD!

The next Infobration will be held on Wednesday, April 26, 2023, at 08:30 a.m. to 10:30 am (Newark time).
This is the ONLY day and time that we will hold this meeting. Put this on your calendar and convert it to your local time.

If you meet your graduation requirements, you will receive an email invitation to the event on the evening of Tuesday, April 25 with the location.

InfoBration + Graduation

Attend ELI graduation on Friday, April 21, 2023, at 12:30 a.m. (Newark time) | 205 Kirkbride Hall 

Do not confuse these two meetings: InfoBration and Graduation. Remember that InfoBration is required for AT students who meet their graduation requirements and want to start UD in the fall!

ELI graduation is a graduation ceremony for everyone leaving the ELI. ELI Director Dr. Scott Stevens will acknowledge your achievements.

Prepare for InfoBration

Here is what you should prepare before InfoBration on Friday.

  • To join the InfoBration meeting in-person, please come to 108 E Main St, room 210 (the Hub). Bring your Student ID and your laptop computer.
  • To join the InfoBration meeting online, you need to use your UD Zoom (this means linked to your UD email) to be authorized to log in. If you need help logging in, see InfoBration login help (pdf).
  • The week before InfoBration, look for an email from UD Admissions (the subject line will be “University of Delaware Password Reset”) to help you set up your password to access My Blue Hen Home, the UD student portal where you’ll get important info about matriculating to UD. Please remember your password for InfoBration.
  • Remember that the Registrar notifies students by email Thursday evening if they have met their graduation requirements and invites those who have to InfoBration. Check your email!
  • Just a reminder that InfoBration is the required meeting for graduating AT students to begin your matriculation process to UD. If invited, do not miss it! Remember that InfoBration is in the morning and there is also an ELI graduation ceremony for all students leaving the ELI in the afternoon. These are separate events.
