You don’t have to become formally admitted to the University of Delaware in order to register for credit courses.
You may enroll in courses offered during the day, evening or online as long as the courses are not restricted and prerequisites/corequisites have been satisfactorily met. Students taking undergraduate courses are activated as Continuing Education, Non-Degree (CEND) students, and those interested in graduate coursework are activated as Graduate College, Non-Degree (GCND) students. Courses taken non-degree status are included on the student academic record and may potentially count toward the completion of a degree upon admission/readmission. Students interested in admission to a graduate program may take a maximum of nine credits prior to formal admission, and they should consult with the academic department to ensure coursework taken prior to admission will apply.
Admission to the University of Delaware is competitive. Taking courses before you apply for admission can strengthen your application. Click here to explore the University’s degrees, majors, and requirements.
Some courses may have restricted enrollment. Any prerequisites or restrictions are listed with the course description. Typically, Continuing Education students may register for up to 7 credits (2 courses) per semester.
