Welcome, new Blue Hens! We are pleased to welcome all of our incoming students to the UD Associate in Arts Program for the fall 2021 semester. New Student Orientation (NSO) is required for all new students to ensure that you have the best experience possible when making the transition from high school to college. NSO introduces you to our program and provides you with the knowledge you need to make the best possible start at the UD AAP. NSO for incoming AAP students will be held virtually from June 21–30, 2021, with select dates in July.
Move this whole section up, swapping places with the section above it.
Traditionally, our NSO events have been hosted during the summer at our Dover, Georgetown, and Wilmington campuses. However, all UD NSO activities this summer will be conducted online. These will include:
All incoming students must complete the online ALEKS Math Placement Exam by June 17, 2021. The exam and instructions for completing it are located at My Blue Hen Home. Students who have not completed the placement exam will have to postpone their advisement and class selection, which may cause significant problems in their scheduling and registration process.
Please note that all undergraduate, graduate and professional students who will be on UD campuses this fall are required to be fully immunized against COVID-19 before their arrival to campus and no later than August 15, 2021. Visit UD’s Student Health Services site for information on documentation requirements, instructions for submitting your vaccine documentation, and FAQs.
All incoming freshmen are required to attend an individual advisement session, held via Zoom, to select courses for the fall semester and discuss them with an academic advisor. This advisement session is a crucial step in planning for a successful freshman year. Students who do not meet with an advisor for an assigned advisement appointment will be rescheduled for a later time and cannot be guaranteed their choice of seats in all classes.
Please be sure to check the individual registration dates for your course of study, as many of our programs meet for advisement sessions on different days. Register for your advisement session via your My Blue Hen Home student portal. Once you have registered, you will receive a confirmation email that includes the Zoom link for your session.
To get the most out of the orientation experience and to receive important information before the start of the fall semester, students should set up their UD email account as soon as possible. Directions for UDelNet student account setup are available from UD-IT and at My Blue Hen Home.
If you have any questions about NSO 2021, feel free to contact us via Zoom using our Virtual Front Office or reach out to an AAP academic advisor. We look forward to meeting you at NSO 2021!
