The University of Delaware offers opportunities for qualified high school students to get a head start on their college education.
High school students can enroll in UD on-campus or distance learning courses as UD Continuing Education (CEND) students.
Any high school student who wants to take UD courses must meet with an ACCESS advisor each semester. Please call 302-831-8843 to schedule a meeting. (Evening hours and phone appointments are available.) During this meeting, the ACCESS advisor will answer any questions and provide forms for the student, parent, and the student’s high school guidance counselor to complete. Students must submit current report cards to their advisors.
Note: Students cannot receive duplicate credit on their UD transcript for UD courses and Advanced Placement courses.
