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.

In the Know: Declaring a Major at UD

Students at the University of Delaware may declare a major and/or minor using the change program plan form available in UDSIS. Although most majors are available to all students, keep in mind that some majors are restricted to students who have met a set of specified criteria (such as a minimum GPA). Some majors also have limited availability due to reaching program capacity. Detailed requirements for restricted majors are available on the Registrar’s page. Please review these criteria carefully and ask an advisor if you have questions.

 

Helpful Hints: Finish in Four

Data collected using the new Blue Hen Success Collaborative system reveal that students who complete at least 30 credits during their first year in college are significantly more likely to graduate in four years. Talk with your advisor about developing an academic plan that includes both the correct number and the appropriate type of credits needed for making progress toward degree completion. You may want to consider taking a course during the summer if you need additional credits.
