ENTRY REQUIREMENTS

International Direct sub-score for English proficiency is not required for admission, but is recommended.

Any prior post-secondary/university credits must be submitted at time of application. Admission will be based on freshman transfer requirements for students with less than 30 credit hours. Students with more than 30 credit hours will be assessed by transfer admissions requirements.

Discover Programs
If you meet the requirements for UD admission but do not meet the minimum English score requirement to be admitted into your desired program, we may admit you into one of our Discover Programs, which provides an opportunity for you to explore your abilities and passions while building a foundation for success. Your academic advisor will then work closely with you to develop a plan to either transfer into your first-choice major or discover another major that matches your skills and interests.
