Take Advantage of Your UD Fee Waiver Benefit

Benefits-eligible employees may use their course fee waiver benefit to enroll in credit courses and many noncredit courses at the University of Delaware. Consult UD’s Human Resources/Benefits website for specifics on the Course Fee Waiver Program for eligible full-time and part-time employees.

Credit Courses and Degree Completion

  • Credit courses are available during the day, in the evening and online.
  • You may take credit courses for a standard letter grade or pass/fail, or take courses as a listener (audit) if you would like to attend a course for personal or professional development without completing the assigned work or getting a grade. (Consult with an ACCESS adviser for rules regarding using pass/fail toward a degree.)
  • Courses taken for credit (standard letter grade or, in some instances, pass/fail) may be used toward completion of a degree. There are many undergraduate and graduate degree options depending on your goals and prior educational experience.
  • For some employees, the Associate in Arts Online degree is a great option! It allows the flexibility of viewing course lectures and material online without attending on-campus classes. If you are interested in completing a bachelor’s degree, it starts you on your way—you will earn credits toward a bachelor’s degree while completing the Associate in Arts Online degree.

 Noncredit Courses

  • Benefits-eligible employees may use their course fee waiver benefit on most of the career-enhancing noncredit certificates and courses offered by UD’s Division of Professional and Continuing Studies, on a space-available basis.
  • A modest fee is charged for materials and incremental expenses.
