Congratulations on your acceptance to the UD Associate in Arts Program!
Now that you've been admitted to the AAP, you may be looking for more information about our program and wondering what your next steps should be.
What We Are
As one of UD’s most successful access points for Delawareans, the AAP offers students the opportunity to complete their first two years of college at campuses in Dover, Georgetown, or Wilmington.
Who We Are
AAP students are predominantly Delawarean high-school graduates and reflect the diversity of our state. Approximately one-third of our student body are first-generation college students.
Where We Are
The AAP is housed within Delaware Technical Community College campuses in Dover, Georgetown, and Wilmington, as well as the UD Downtown Center, located at 8th and Market streets in the heart of Wilmington.
What We Offer
The AAP offers academically rigorous UD courses, taught exclusively by UD faculty, that simultaneously fulfill our associate-degree requirements and the core requirements for majors leading to the bachelor’s degree. Our small class size — about 35 students per class — is a proven model for promoting academic success and encouraging student retention.
AAP advantages include:
- Low or no-cost tuition: AAP courses are offered at one-third the Newark tuition rate, and tuition is free for SEED-eligible students
- A fast track to a teaching or nursing career through our UD/Beebe and Elementary Teacher Education programs
- Civic engagement and co-curricular learning opportunities that develop students’ leadership skills and build strong relationships with their communities
- Dedicated student advisement: Academic advisors at each campus work one-on-one with students to ensure they stay on track for their future major
- Professional academic support in writing and math
- Opportunities to participate in study abroad, internships, alternative spring break programs, and more
