All new CAS students will be advised and registered for classes PRIOR to New Student Orientation.
Below are step-by-step instructions to help you in preparing for your advisement appointment, selecting spring 2019 courses, and arrival at UD. These instructions include steps to take BEFORE scheduling your advising appointment (STEPS 1-7), and steps to take AFTER your advising appointment (STEPS 8 and 9), so please read them carefully.
BEFORE scheduling your advisement appointment:
STEP 1. Watch the Pre-Advisement Video
We have prepared a video that you will need to watch prior to making your advisement appointment. The video is about 25 minutes long and contains important information about degree requirements, registration, academic deadlines, advising, and more.

STEP 2. Take the Pre-Advisement Survey
Our Pre-Advisement Survey will ask about your AP credit, transfer credit, and language background. It will take you about 10-20 minutes to complete the survey.
The survey can be accessed by visiting the link here: https://delaware.ca1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_exJCo75SSw4lYnr
You will not be able to schedule advisement without a completed survey, so please complete it right away once you receive the link.
STEP 3. Take the Math Placement Exam
If you haven't already completed your math placement exam, you need to do so ASAP! You can access it through My Blue Hen home or by following this link: https://www.mathsci.udel.edu/courses-placement/ud-math-placement. Please note that your placement in math courses is entirely dependent on your performance on this exam and your intended major. It is important for you to take the exam seriously.
It is important that you know what score is needed for your desired major. You can access that information here: https://www.mathsci.udel.edu/courses-placement/ud-math-placement/placement-goal.
Students are permitted to take the exam more than once, so if you don't earn the score you need for your desired major, please take it again prior to your advising appointment.
STEP 4. Send Your Test Credits to UD
UD awards credit for certain AP and IB exams. Information about accepted tests/scores and about credits awarded for AP and IB exams can be found here: http://www1.udel.edu/registrar/transfer/testcredit.html
Have all of your scores sent to the University of Delaware so that your credits can eventually become part of your UD record. To inquire about having scores sent to UD, please contact the College Board directly for AP: https://apscore.collegeboard.org/scores/score-reporting, and please contact the IBO for IB: http://www.ibo.org/iba/transcripts.
STEP 5. Send Your Transfer Credits to UD
If you have any transfer credits, you MUST read the information about the evaluation of transfer credit: http://www.udel.edu/registrar/transfer/reeval.html
If you have completed any courses at another institution, have an official copy of your transcript from the other school sent to the Registrar's Office:
Registrar - Transfer Credit
University of Delaware
210 S. College Avenue
Newark, DE 19716 (Attn: Brian Posthauer)
Please also bring a copy of these transcripts (unofficial is fine) or grade reports with you to your advisement appointment.
STEP 6. Review Important Registration Information
New Arts and Sciences students will have the ability to register themselves for their spring 2019 courses. While an Advisor will be providing you with an overview of the registration process, we recommend that you review the following links prior to your advisement appointment:
STEP 7. Schedule your Advisement Appointment
Once you've followed the steps above you're ready to schedule your appointment. Appointments will start December 3, 2018 and continue through February 2019. Call us at 302-831-3020 to schedule your appointment.
AFTER attending your advisement appointment:
STEP 8. Register for Classes
After attending your advisement appointment, you are ready to register for classes. Using the links listed above and accessing the Web Reg system (https://udel.onecampus.com/task/all/webreg), you may register for your spring 2019 classes based on the recommendations you received during your advisement appointment.
STEP 9. Attend New Student Orientation (NSO)
New Student Orientation (NSO) will take place on Friday, February 8th for first year and transfer students. Please note that NSO begins for international students on Thursday, February 7th. For more information about NSO and to view NSO dates, please visit https://sites.udel.edu/nso/orientation/. During NSO, you'll have the opportunity to reconnect with us, meet new people, learn about campus life here at UD, get information about housing, dining, financial aid, and more. The NSO office will contact you directly to invite you to register.
