Welcome, New Blue Hens!
2019 Advisement - Registration postcard

AAP campuses host two major events each summer for incoming students. Individual advisement sessions, which are held each year in June, allow students to meet one-on-one with an academic advisor. Students will return in August for the larger Campus Welcome event, which includes important information about advisement, student activities, parking, public safety, and more. 

Both events are required and attendance is limited to students only. We encourage parents who have questions or concerns to join us for our Facebook Live pre-advisement video chat on Wednesday, June 19, at 6 p.m., which is hosted by the AAP advisement team. Parents may also contact our academic advisors or AAP administrative offices for further information.

NSO is an important step in preparing new students for a successful fall semester. We look forward to giving our first-year students the best possible introduction to our program as they begin their academic journey at UD!

Individual Advisement Sessions

All incoming freshmen are scheduled for an individual advisement session to select courses for the fall semester and discuss them with an academic advisor. These individual meetings are held on campus and should be attended by students only. All students must bring a photo ID, such as a driver's license, to their advisement session.

At NSO advisement, new students have the opportunity to: 

  • Cover important topics such as student life, academics and registration
  • Receive academic advisement and register for their first-semester courses
  • Have their student ID photo taken 
  • Interact with new and current students

Please note: All incoming students must complete the online ALEKS Math Placement Exam before the deadline of June 19, 2019. 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 the scheduling and registration process.

The individual advisement session is a crucial step in planning for a successful freshman year. Students who are unable to attend their assigned advisement appointment will be rescheduled for a time during open registration and cannot be guaranteed their choice of seats in all classes. 

If you are unable to attend one of the regularly scheduled advisement sessions, make-up sessions are available. See "Make-Up Advisement Dates" below. Registration for these sessions opens on Monday, June 17, 2019.

The Campus Welcome event in August includes important information for new students about advisement, student activities, use of DTCC campus facilities, parking, public safety, disability support services, and academic accommodations. Students have the chance to meet faculty, staff, AAP Peer Mentors, and their fellow students as they take a campus tour, which concludes with UDairy Creamery ice cream from UD's Moo Mobile.

As with the NSO advisement sessions, attendance at this event is limited to students only. Parents with questions should contact the campus's academic advisor or administrative office. Campus Welcome dates for each campus are below. For full event details, see the Events Calendar.

To get the most out of the orientation experience and to receive important reminders before the start of the fall semester, students should set up their UD email account before this event. Directions for UDelNet student account setup are available from UD-IT and at My Blue Hen Home.
