How do I know if a course satisfies the A&S Second Writing requirement?
A master list of all courses approved to be taught as a Second Writing course can be found in the UD Catalog.
These courses are not, however,
always taught to fulfill the second writing requirement. Only the
specific sections designated within each academic term will satisfy the
second writing requirement. Please check the UDSIS registration system
to ascertain whether a particular course section will be offered as a
second writing course. Only a limited number of courses, when
transferred from another institution, will satisfy the second writing
I am thinking of changing my major; what should I do?
First, you should review the requirements for the major in the UD Catalog.
Read over the course titles and descriptions; be sure that you are
interested. Through the Student Center in UDSIS, you can also learn
about how your current courses would count in your new major or degree.
Follow the instructions on for StudentWhatIf.pdf.
Then review the requirements and restrictions
for changing into the new major. Then, contact the department you're
looking to switch into. They will be able to talk with you about the
major and any possible concentrations. They may also be able to tell you
whether any of your previous credit will apply. If you are not sure
what you'd like to change your major to, you can call UAS for an
appointment or set up a meeting with an advisor from the University Studies program.
Where can I find a listing of CAS Breadth (Group) Requirements?
You can find a comprehensive listing of CAS Breadth here.
Please note that for each Group, you must take no more than 6 credits
from one department. This means that if you are looking to satisfy Group
B, for example, you can only apply 6 credits from HIST toward Group B.
The other 3 credits must come from another department (and can NOT be
cross-listed with HIST). You may also wish to read more about how
breadth requirements work by checking the CAS Breadth Requirements page.
I would like a Senior Checkout. How do I get one?
Please see our Senior Checkout FAQ page.
What is the "residency requirement"?
To receive a University of Delaware baccalaureate degree, admitted
students must complete 90 of the first 100 credits or 30 of the last 36
credits, full- or part-time, at the University of Delaware. Please click here: Residency Requirement.pdf for a visual representation of the residency requirement.
I want to take more than 18 credits; can I do that?
Please review the University's credit overload policy. Then contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to be considered for a credit overload.
Who is my advisor?
Your advisor is listed on your
UDSIS Student Center. Click on the details link in the UDSIS Advisor box to email your advisor. You may also use the UD Directory
to find your advisor's contact information. If you have not been
assigned an advisor, you should contact your department and ask to have
an advisor assigned to you.
I'd like to take an online course. How do I get permission?
Any student with a cumulative GPA of
2.0 or higher may take up to two online courses each semester without
permission. Students with GPA's below a
2.0 or students hoping to take more than 2 online classes must seek permission from UAS. In considering whether or not we will
grant permission, we consider the student's immediate need for the
course, prior success in online courses (e.g., winter and summer
sessions), academic history, and extenuating circumstances (e.g.,
medical needs, etc.). If you wish to seek permission for online
enrollment, please contact our office at email@example.com .

something that is on this list, please contact Undergraduate Academic
