UAS Walk-In hours are Monday-Friday from 1PM - 4PM

**PLEASE NOTE THAT WALK-IN HOURS WILL BE CANCELLED ON THE AFTERNOONS OF MONDAY, NOVEMBER 20, 2017, AND THURSDAY, DECEMBER 14, 2017**

Here in UAS, our Academic Program Managers can assist students with matters outside of the major. CAS students advisement for 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 Program Manager. 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 change 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. If, in the very rare circumstance that walk-in hours will be cancelled, this information will be posted on this website and/or the door to our office.

As always, please feel free to email us with non-urgent concerns: as-advise@udel.edu . We'll get back to you within 2 business days (often sooner).

​Students may visit the office during walk-in hours for the following services:

General Questions
Students with routine questions are invited to meet with a UAS Program Manager during walk-in hours. However, "quick questions" (clarification of a policy, questions about breadth, etc.) can be answered via email: as-advise@udel.edu , and students with complex questions or multiple concerns should call (302) 831-3020 to schedule an appointment with a Program Manager.

Excused Absence
If 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. 

Discussion of Transfer Credit/Non-UD Study Abroad

Guidelines for transfer of credit can be found on the Registrar's website. If you have any additional questions, we are happy to assist you with this kind of planning. We strongly encourage students to discuss any non-UD credit BEFORE enrolling in the non-UD course(s).

Changes of Registration after Drop/Add
Our staff members will be happy to help students understand the implications of withdrawing or changing course registration to Audit or Pass/Fail.

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 Educational and Military Leave of Absence, students should be prepared to provide documentation (course enrollment at another institution, military orders, etc.). 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.

Other
If you are not sure if we're the right place, please call us: (302) 831-3020 or email as-advise@udel.edu . We'll let you know if walk-ins are appropriate.

You should make an appointment to discuss:

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 Program Manager.

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.

Long-term Academic Planning
Course selection for each semester should be planned by students and discussed with faculty advisors. However, we realize that students are often trying to plan multiple academic programs and want to know how they can satisfy different requirements and still meet their intended graduation term. For things like this, please call for an appointment.

Extenuating Circumstances
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.

The following do not require a meeting with our staff members:

General Questions
If you simply need clarification of a policy or need assistance with finding information, please feel free to email our staff members at as-advise@udel.edu . 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.

Senior Checkout
UAS completes Official Senior Checkouts for all students who are seniors within CAS. 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 as-advise@udel.edu . For a more thorough explanation of the Senior Checkout process, please visit our Senior Checkout FAQ page.

Degree Clearance
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 and Degree Audit in UDSIS, 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.

Transfer credit
UAS Program Managers 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 1-3 of the transfer credit process as listed on the Registrar's 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 Program Manager 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 Registrar for processing.
