Note to the AAP Community, September 2020:
Student resource options have changed since the implementation of UD's fully online format due to COVID-19. For a full overview of the resources now available to AAP students for the Fall 2020 semester, including information about AAP math and writing tutoring, mental health counseling, Disability Support Services, library resources, information about UD student clubs and organizations, and more, please review the video of the University Resources Town Hall Meeting (linked below) that was held on Sept. 14, 2020.
Additional Student Resources
Traditionally, one of the benefits of the UD Associate in Arts Program is the close, personal contact that students have with faculty and staff. If you have questions or concerns about an academic or personal issue, we recommend that you first connect with your academic advisor. He or she can talk over your concerns with you and refer you, as appropriate, to campus or community resources.
As an AAP student, you are eligible to participate in most of the student activities on the Newark campus and may utilize all services on that campus, with the exception of Student Health Services and the Center for Counseling and Student Development (unless you have paid the Student Health Fee). Students within the program receive a UDID card and are granted many of the same privileges as UD students at the Newark campus, including admission to athletic events; use of the Morris Library; eligibility to participate in activities such as Marching Band, ROTC, student organizations, and study abroad; and more. Students are also granted access to Delaware Tech facilities on their campus, such as the fitness center, library, and bookstore. Individual, UD-staffed tutoring is available in writing and in math on each campus if a student needs academic assistance. If needed, tutoring can be arranged for other subjects, as well.
Accommodations for Students with Disabilities
Accommodations for Associate in Arts students with disabilities are typically provided through a designated faculty member on each campus. Students must first be determined eligible for accommodations by the Disabilities Support Services (DSS) office on the Newark campus and will need to submit appropriate documentation to the Documentation Review Committee. This typically takes several weeks, so it is best to begin the process as soon as possible. Students submitting documentation prior to beginning their first semester in the program may send materials directly to the DSS office at 240 Academy St., Alison Hall, Suite 130, Newark, DE 19716. Additional information about accommodations is available at the Disability Support Services website.
