Registration and Drop/Add begins October 30 Mon.
Fee Payment Deadline January 3 Wed.
All students must ensure their bills are paid in a timely manner or they will be assessed a $55 late payment fee. Failure to pay does not relieve students of their financial obligation. Students who do not plan to attend or who financially cannot pay must drop courses by the end of the Free Drop/Add period. Students may view up-to-date billing and financial aid information on My Finances, UD's online educational financing site. Please note the following options for addressing your balance due:
  • Pay in full by the due date, or
  • Notify the University of any anticipated resources (student loans, outside scholarships, Grad Contract, course fee waiver, etc.) by reporting those as additional credits on My Finances and then submitting payment for any remaining balance.
