Major Exploration: Apparel Design and Fashion Merchandising

If you have a knack for creating, adapting, displaying, and marketing clothing and accessories, a career in the fashion industry may be a good fit for you.

Students interested in the restricted majors, Apparel Design (BS) and Fashion Merchandising (BS), should submit the change of major form found here no later than February 15, 2019 to be considered for acceptance in the Spring. Admission to these majors is restricted; that is, they are limited by academic requirements (such as GPA), availability of resources (such as faculty supervisors), or physical space limitations (such as appropriate laboratory facilities).

 

In the Know: Transfer Credit

If you are planning to take a course at another school during the winter session, be sure to check the Transfer Credit Matrix to confirm that the class is accepted for credit at UD. You should complete and submit the TCE form prior to taking the course.

Upon completion of a course at another school, students need to send an official transcript directly to the UD Registrar.  Two weeks after the official transcript has been sent to UD, review UDSIS to ensure the credits have been posted. If not posted, verify UD has received the official transcript by contacting transfercredit@udel.edu.

Student Spotlight: Isabella Hsiao

Isabella is a sophomore UST student and peer liaison. She thinks the main benefit of entering college as an undeclared student is having the opportunity to explore your options by taking classes that interest you while fulfilling breadth requirements. Although she is still considering majors, becoming a member of the Evolution Dance Team and Zumba Club helped Isabella decide to declare a dance minor.

 

In the Know: Course Registration Tips

Section numbers refer to the day, time, and location of a course. The section number appears after the course number: PSYC100-010 refers to General Psychology 100, section 010, which meets on M/W/F from 9:05-9:55 am in the Fall 2018 semester.

Some sections are offered online, including 194 and 195. Some are reserved for special populations – such as Honors 080, 081, etc.. Some sections are not available to most students because they meet in another part of the state (or even the world!) – such as 310, 510, 710, and 070.

If a class you wish to take is full (0 seats available), check back at a later date, as a seat may become available if someone decides to drop the class. UST advisors do not have the authority to enroll you in a class that is full or restricted. For additional information, visit the Registrar’s site.
