The Over-60 Tuition Free Degree Program reflects the University of Delaware's effort to encourage adult students to continue their studies on either a part-time or full-time basis. To be eligible for free undergraduate or graduate tuition, Delaware citizens aged 60 or over must apply for admission to the University and be admitted.
Application for admission should be made as soon as possible for the upcoming semester, as the admissions process may take six to eight weeks after receipt of all required application materials.
Ruth Crump, Admissions Office, will begin processing the application and can answer any additional questions you may have. You can reach her by phone at the Admissions Office at 302-831-1276 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are age 60 or older, a Delaware resident and wish to pursue a tuition-free graduate degree, please follow this graduate application process:
Obtain information about graduate degree programs by visiting the Office of Graduate and Professional Education online. From here you can fill out an online inquiry form for more details and find the correct contact information. Each graduate department responds to its own inquiries.
If you are unsure about which graduate program to pursue, you can make an appointment with an ACCESS counselor to explore possible majors.
When you ready to apply, use the standard graduate application. If accepted, your application fee and tuition bill will be waived but you will be responsible for other fees and costs.
