UAS Walk-In hours are Monday-Friday from 1PM - 4PM
Here in UAS, our Coordinators can assist students with matters outside of the major. CAS students seeking Dean's Office signature or other routine matters are seen without an appointment during our Walk-In hours, from 1PM to 4PM every weekday. Those who cannot stop by in the afternoon are asked to call (302) 831-3020 for a morning appointment.
Students with general questions about University or College policy and requirements that are a bit too complex for email, are welcome to meet with our on-call Coordinator during Walk-Ins.
Quick questions can be answered via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Students with very complex questions should call (302) 831-3020 to schedule an appointment with a Coordinator.
Change of major guidance**For complex questions and concerns related to changes of major, students should call UAS (302) 831-3020 to set up an appointment with a Coordinator.
How to change to a major within the CAS:If you are thinking of changing your major within CAS, you should first locate the web site for the desired major. Read over all of the requirements, review course descriptions for the courses within the major, and be sure that it is what you had in mind. If you wish to complete the change of major, you can log into UDSIS and follow the instructions for "Change Program/Plan" listed under "Web Forms." If you have difficulty with the process, please feel free to contact our office.
How to change to a major within a College out side of CAS:If you are thinking of changing to a major that is not within CAS, you should first locate the web site for the desired major. Some colleges and programs have specific requirements for application and may have deadlines or certain times of the year when changes are permitted. This information can also be found on the Registrar's website.
Read over all of the requirements, review course descriptions for the courses within the major, and be sure that it is what you had in mind. If you need additional information about how your current course work will fit in the new major, you should contact the advisement office for the appropriate college. If, after meeting with faculty and/or staff in the new college, you wish to make the change, you can log into UDSIS and follow the instructions for "Change Program/Plan" listed under "Web Forms."
If you're not sure which major is right for you:Students who are unsure about which major is right for them (but know that a change is necessary) could benefit by declaring the University Studies major. The University Studies program offers major-selection workshops, close guidance from advisors, and resources to assist in major exploration. Please feel free to contact University Studies to make arrangements to talk with an advisor (302) 831-4555.
University Withdrawal or Leave of Absence
Our office can assist students with withdrawing from the University entirely or with taking an official Leave of Absence. For Leave of Absence, students should be prepared to provide documentation (course enrollment at another institution, military orders, etc.). If you need to file paperwork for a University Withdrawal or Leave of Absence, please feel free to visit our office during walk-in hours. For more information about time away from the University, please click here.
Please note: Medical Leave of Absence is processed through the Office of the Dean of Students.
Sometimes, unexpected things get in the way of your academics or continued studies. If you are experiencing unusual circumstances that are impacting your ability to remain enrolled, please call our office at (302) 831-3020. We can either assist you directly or connect you with the people on campus who can assist you.
If you simply need clarification of a policy or need assistance with finding information, please feel free to email our staff members at email@example.com. We'll get back to you within two business days with a thorough answer to your question. When sending us a message, please include your full name and student ID number so that we can provide you with information as it applies directly to you.
UAS completes Official Senior Checkouts for all students who are seniors within CAS. Our staff works with each academic department in order to summarize students' remaining requirements within the major and outside of the major. Senior Checkouts are automatically completed in the semester prior to a student's graduation term (as listed in UDSIS). For example, all students who have Spring graduation terms listed in UDSIS will receive a Senior Checkout in the middle of the Fall semester prior to graduation. Our office does not schedule appointments for Senior Checkouts; instead they are automatically sent to students' udel.edu email addresses. Students who would like to find out about the status of their Senior Checkout can email the office at firstname.lastname@example.org. For a more thorough explanation of the Senior Checkout process, please visit our Senior Checkout FAQ page.
No meeting is required in order to verify that you have completed all degree requirements. After you have completed your final semester, our staff members provide confirmation to the Registrar's Office. Using your Senior Checkout, we verify that you have, in fact completed all of your requirements and are eligible for your degree. There is nothing that you need to do to initiate this process. Once we have confirmed your eligibility, the Registrar's Office will post your degree to your official transcript and order your diploma. For more information about degree conferral, graduation ceremonies, and diplomas, please click here.
UAS Coordinators are authorized to provide approval for transfer of credit on behalf of the Assistant Dean of the College of Arts & Sciences. Before visiting UAS, you should complete steps 1-5 of the transfer credit process as listed on the University's Transfer Center website for currently enrolled students BEFORE seeking the Assistant Dean's signature.
Completed Transfer Credit Evaluation (TCE) forms (including additional documentation, such as email from faculty with course evaluation) should be dropped off with reception in 109 Mitchell Hall. A Coordinator will review your TCE form and documentation and provide the signature of approval. You will receive an email when the signed TCE form is ready to be picked up (usually within 2-3 business days). You will then deliver the completed TCE form to the University Transfer Center for processing.
