Private alternative loans—Non-matriculated students are not eligible to use the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid form), so the only option is private alternative loans. The UD's Office of Student Financial Services certifies the loans. If you have any questions about funding your education, you call the ACCESS Center at 302-831-7600. Examples of student loan companies are listed below:
Sallie Mae Smart Option Student Loan—UD Continuing Education students, use the University of Delaware credit code 001431-00.
Scholarships—Spring 2014 application deadline: January 24, 2014
University of Delaware Women's Club Scholarship—Provides partial funding for a limited number of qualified female applicants who are returning adult students with substantial financial need. If there is a history of previous college credits, an unofficial transcript must be provided to show good academic standing. Proof of income and an explanation of goals is part of the application process. Scholarship applications are available by calling 302-831-2743 or you may download and print the application from the web.
Part-time matriculated students who are registered for 6 or more credit hours are eligible to apply for all federal and state need-based financial aid programs. Details are available through the University of Delaware Student Financial Services.
Delaware residents who are 60 years of age or older and who become matriculated University of Delaware undergraduate or graduate students may take University credit courses without paying tuition, on a space available basis. For details, visit the Over-60 Tuition-free Degree Program.
