Associate in Arts Transitions Guide


Students transitioning from the University's Associate in Arts program (AAP) to the Newark campus are unique. AAP students apply to live on campus like returning Upper Division students, but we know that you are new to the process.

When you live in the residence halls, you become part of a community rich in history and tradition.

Students who choose to live on campus have higher GPAs, stay on track to graduate and feel like they can succeed here at UD!

Make UD your home for 2018-2019.

By applying for 2018-2019 UD Housing during the Upper-Division Open Enrollment Period, September 1 - September 29, 2017, you'll select your own space on campus in the spring. This works like selecting an airline or concert seat.

Everyone who applies in September is randomly chosen for one of two room selection groups; you'll either select your space on campus for next year in March or in later rounds. We'll email you in early October to let you know.

Be sure to review the Student Housing Contract.

When you complete the housing application, you sign the Student Housing Contract.

This contract is, well... a contract. It is legally and financially binding. That means that you (and we) are held responsible for the terms of the contract.

Read all of the details about applying in our Returning Student: Upper Division Application guide.

Although students are guaranteed a space on campus, we do not guarantee a specific location or preferred roommate. Applications received after the deadline will be accommodated as space permits.


On-campus residents always have something to do and someone to meet. Whether you're hanging out in the common rooms or participating in activies and events, you'll connect with other students in the residence halls on a daily basis.

Enhance your UD experience

We encourage you to apply for the Bridge Experience, a Living Learning Community in Independence East designed to support your needs.

Just like all resident students, you can also participate in leadership and learning opportunities like the Student Initiative Fund, Service Initiatives and Complex Community Council. These are great ways to not only get engaged, but to enhance the skills and experience needed in life after college.
