2018 Summer Sessions Registration Information

Registration begins April 2, 2018

Registration on the Web (beginning April 2).

Online registration requires that you have established your UD Student Record and know your logon credentials:
either Student-ID + PIN ... or ... UDelnet-ID + password.
If you are unsure of your logon credentials, try them out now by logging on to UDSIS, and viewing your "Student Center" pages.
Registration functions are in the first major section of the page (Academics):
        - Registration & Drop/Add


University of Delaware students should consult with their advisors concerning course selection. Students attending other colleges or universities should confer with officials at their home institution regarding transfer of credits. Non-matriculated students are encouraged to contact the Division of Professional and Continuing Studies ACCESS Center, 302-831-8843, for academic advisement. High school students are required to see an ACCESS Center advisor prior to registering for courses.

Credit Limits

Students may take up to seven credits during each session. Higher credit loads require the permission of the student's dean, or for students not in a University of Delaware degree program the permission of an ACCESS counselor, (302) 831-8843.


For courses that are closed, restricted, require permission or that cannot otherwise be enrolled through Web Registration,
contact the academic department offering the course. Students may enroll for no more than seven credits during each Summer Session, unless they obtain the permission of their Assistant Dean to exceed this limit. All registrations made through UDSIS are subject to the final approval of the student's Assistant Dean and the University Registrar.

Course Schedules

Your Summer course schedule will be constantly available online in your UDSIS Student Center page: (Academics) "My Class Schedule".
Each time you log on to UDSIS registration functions, your actual schedule will be displayed to you, and each time you make a change, its effect will be shown in an updated schedule in real-time. No paper schedules will be mailed. If you have any doubt about your schedule and cannot logon, then students already in degree programs can come to the University Visitor Center (210 South College Ave; Room 127). Continuing Education students can come to the ACCESS Center listed above.

Late Registration and Free Drop/Add

First Session (5 and 7-1/2 weeks) - June 4 - 7
10-Week Session - June 4 - 13
Second (5-week) Session - July 9- 12
You can register or change your registration via UDSIS. If a course is closed or restricted, you will need to contact the academic department offering the course.
      NOTE: The Free Drop/Add period for courses that do not adhere to the standard schedule above is calculated by this formula: One-seventh times the number of class days (if a fraction, rounded to the next greater integer). For example, for a one-week (five-day) course, the Free Drop/Add period would be the first day of class. 1/7 x 5 days = 5/7 rounded to 1 day.

After the Free Drop/Add Period

(No tuition rebates)

When you withdraw from a course after the Free Drop/Add Period, a grade of "W" is posted to your academic record and tuition is charged and not refundable. All courses added after the Free Drop/Add period require permission of the Assistant Dean of the student's college (an ACCESS counselor for students not matriculated in a UD degree prorgam). Use the online webform on your UDSIS Student Center Page:
      - Web Forms (right-hand column)
            - Course Permit (Drop/Add)
In addition, a $25 fee is charged for a change of registration at this time.

The deadlines for withdrawing from courses without academic penalty are:
First Session, 5-week classes . . . . . . June 21
First Session, 7-1/2 week classes . . . July 2
10-Week Session. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . July 12
Second Session . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .July 26
Any changes after these dates require the approval of the Assistant Dean of the student's college. Use the web form described above. The Assistant Dean will permit you to withdraw from courses only for unusual circumstances beyond a student's control and not for reasons of academic performance. The Assistant Dean's approval does not alleviate the financial obligation incurred by a late withdrawal - that full tuition is charged in addition to a $25 fee for late changes of registration.

Types of Courses

Most Summer courses are regular catalogued ones which are also offered during other semesters. Students should refer to the current catalogs for additional details on course content and prerequisites, if any. The University reserves the right to withdraw any course, to limit enrollment, to change instructors, to shift the location of a class or to change the times listed.
      Courses numbered "_67" are Experimental Courses. Course descriptions appear in the "Supplemental Course Descriptions" section of the "Courses" topic on this Summer website.
      Supervised study is a one-to-one faculty/student collaboration on a special problem, independent study, research, thesis or dissertation. Students interested in supervised study should discuss their proposed project with a faculty sponsor and then document the content according to department policy. The student must also register for the appropriate course, and must fill out the Web Form named "Independent Study and DLE Agreement".
      Courses with "000"' section numbers. You must obtain faculty permission for all "000" section courses before registering. When registering for a section-000 course, the student must also specify the faculty member who has agreed to supervise the student's work, and if it is a variable-credit course, then the number of credits on which they have agreed.
      If a course meeting time is not listed, the student will be responsible for contacting the instructor or department to arrange class meeting times and locations.

Auditor Status

Students wishing to attend class but not do all the required work or receive credit may register as "auditors". Tuition and registration are the same for auditor status as for registration for credit. A change of grade status after the Free Drop/Add period incurs a $25 registration change fee.

Pass-Fail Grade Options

Undergraduate students are permitted to take one free "elective" course on a pass/fail basis each semester. Continuing Education students can do so without limitation (except as they may one day want to apply those credits to a degree). The total credits taken for a Pass/Fail grade may not exceed 24 in a baccalaureate degree program. A student registered for a course which is offered pass/fail only may still take another course on a pass/fail basis as a "free elective." Students are encouraged to consult with their advisors in the selection of courses to be taken under this option, as the use of free electives varies from college to college.

A student may not add a course with a pass/fail option beyond the course load permitted for his classification. Changes in the pass/fail grade status will be handled as changes in registration, and a student will be permitted to change pass/fail status only one time in any single course. A change of grade status after the Free Drop/Add period incurs a $25 registration change fee.

The instructor will determine a regular grade for the student who has selected the pass/fail option. Grades between A and D- will be recorded on the report of grades and on the official transcript as a P. An F will be recorded as an F. A grade of F will count in the cumulative index; a P will not.
