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 can be 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.
Walk-in hours are typically staffed by just one UAS coordinator. These meetings are intended to be brief - about 15 minutes - if you know that your concerns might take longer, please phone for an appointment. During walk-in hours, students are seen in order of arrival and it is possible that there may be a bit of a wait. We'll always let you know how long the wait might be when you check in.
Please be aware that during certain times in the semester (during drop/add, around the academic penalty deadline, and during any registration periods) our walk-in volume is very high. During those times, please be prepared to wait to be seen. If you'd like to call ahead to check on the wait, please feel free: 302-831-3020.
As always, please feel free to email us with non-urgent concerns: firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll get back to you within 2 business days (often sooner).
"Quick questions" (clarification of a policy, questions about breadth, etc.) can be answered via email: email@example.com
Excused AbsenceIf you need to discuss an excused absence, please call 302-831-3020 or visit during our office's walk-in hours. If you have missed more than a week of class, please call to make an appointment.

Long-term Academic Planning

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 email@example.com. 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.
