The Associate in Arts Program is designed to encourage successful completion of the associate in arts degree and to allow a smooth transition to baccalaureate studies on the Newark campus. Courses in the Program are UD courses taught by UD faculty and are the same courses taught on the Newark campus. Courses taken for associate in arts degree requirements are recorded on the student's UD transcript in our student records system and will be carried forward to count toward completion of a UD bachelor's degree. Up to 29 credits of courses transferred from other accredited institutions also may be counted toward associate degree completion, if the courses meet degree requirements and if they have been completed with a grade of "C" or higher.
Program participants will receive academic advisement from faculty and full-time professional advisors on each campus. Individual assistance is available in writing and in math, and tutoring can be arranged for other subjects. Students within the Program will carry a UD ID card and will be granted many of the same privileges as UD students at the Newark campus, including admission to athletic events, use of the Morris Library, eligibility to participate in activities such as Marching Band, ROTC, student organizations, study abroad, and more. Students will also be granted access to Delaware Tech facilities on their campus, such as the fitness center, library, bookstore, and more.
The curriculum for the associate in arts degree, grounded in the traditional liberal arts, prepares students to enter a broad variety of bachelor's degree majors, and provides students with skills that employers want most, such as proficiency in decision-making and problem-solving, oral and written communication skills, quantitative reasoning ability, the ability to work independently or as part of a team, and the capacity to understand and use different modes of reasoning.
The Associate in Arts Program is structured in ways that promote student academic success, offering:• Small class sizes• Close faculty contact• Personal attention• Curriculum structured to lead students toward an eventual major• A close-knit learning community, made possible by a small campus environment• Freshman seminar in the first semester, focusing on study skills and time management and other essential skills for student success• Additional math and writing assistance• Substantially reduced tuition — perhaps even free, if eligible for a State of Delaware SEED Scholarship.
Delaware SEED scholarships are provided by the State of Delaware and
tuition for full time students enrolled in the Associate in Arts
Program. The SEED Scholarships are for
Delaware residents who graduate from a Delaware high school with a GPA
of 2.5 or higher, enter directly into the AAP from high school, and are
not convicted felons. Enrollment in at least 24 credits per academic
year and a 2.5 GPA must be maintained to continue eligibilty while in
the Associate in Arts Program.
For Freshmen who will
be entereing the Associate in Arts Program, the University of Delaware
will award SEED scholarships to as many eligible students as State
funding will allow. In selecting students, UD will give the priority to
students who have the most financial need as determined by the Free
Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). UD begins reviewing new
students in March; it is recommended that families file their FAFSAs by
the end of February (www.fafsa.ed.gov) for first consideration.
