UD students who complete at least 30 credits during their first year in college are more likely to graduate in four years. Talk with an 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 winter session to stay on track.
During the winter break, students are encouraged to arrange a job shadow experience with someone who works in their field of interest. Job shadowing may involve taking a “behind the scenes” tour of an organization, attending team meetings, interviewing people who hold positions at different levels of a company, and identifying a mentor who can assist you in evaluating potential career options. To connect with UD alumni who may be willing to host your visit to their place of employment, log in to Handshake.
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.
