Image Picker for Section 0

Eligibility Requirements

To be eligible for the SEED Scholarship, students must meet several requirements:

  • ​Must be a Delaware resident who graduates from a Delaware high school with a GPA of 2.5 or higher.
  • Enter directly into the UD Associate in Arts Program from high school.
  • Have no felony convictions. 
  • Enroll in at least 24 credits per academic year and maintain a 2.5 GPA while in the UD Associate in Arts Program to remain eligible. 

Maintaining Eligibility

​​Requirements to maintain eligibility for the SEED Scholarship while at the Associate in Arts Program:

  • The student must make steady academic progress toward an associate degree, earning no fewer than 24 credit hours required for full-time status in each academic year. 
  • The student must maintain continuous enrollment for both the fall and spring semesters in each successive academic year.
  • The student must maintain a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.5. The cumulative grade point average will be 
verified the day after summer session grades are reviewed to determine eligibility for the upcoming academic year.
  • If a student has a pending felony charge, or is convicted of a felony charge, the student and parent/legal guardian or relative caregiver will notify the appropriate UD Financial Aid Office.
  • Students are eligible to participate in the SEED Scholarship program for a period not to exceed six continuous semesters. SEED will not pay for any credits taken beyond the attainment of one associate degree.
  • If a student has not successfully completed 24 credit hours and obtained a cumulative 2.5 GPA by the end of the spring semester, the student must successfully complete the remaining credit hours during the summer semester. However, the student must submit a petition to have summer courses considered for SEED eligibility. Courses that are repeated will not be covered by the SEED Scholarship. 
  • To maintain eligibility for the SEED Scholarship during the next academic year, the student should reapply for financial aid by June 1. First-time students who apply  for year1 SEED and do not receive it due to the availability of other financial assistance can be considered for SEED for year 2 if they meet eligibility requirements at the end of year 1.
