Residency Classification for Tuition Purposes
In general, to qualify as a Delaware (in-state) student for tuition and fee purposes, the student (or the parent/guardian upon whom the student is dependent) must have established a domicile in Delaware and must have maintained continuous residence therein for a period of 12 consecutive months as of the first day of classes in the semester/session in which Delaware student status is sought. Individuals who work in Delaware but reside in another state are not considered in-state students for the purpose of tuition and fees. First time students should resolve any questions concerning residency prior to submitting a registration form.
The complete residency policy can be found at
All students receive a discount if they take five or more credits. For students who take six credit hours, the discount is 25%.
Students who take UD-Online Distance Learning classes outside of Delaware can, under certain
conditions, qualify for a lower than normal
"Nonresident Site Tuition" rate.
Students in the Associate in Arts Program, when taking classes at one of the AA Academic Centers, will be charged tuition for those classes at the prevailing Associate in Arts Program rates. When taking classes on the Newark campus, AA students will be charged the normal Undergraduate rates shown in the tables above.

CANCELLATION, WITHDRAWAL AND REFUND POLICIES
Students who advance register for the Winter Session will be assessed charges via our My Finances online billing site. Advance registered students who later decide not to attend must drop their courses
as early as possible. This adjusts the student's Winter Session charges, and frees space in courses for other students. Students in University housing must also notify the Office of Residence Life and Housing, (302) 831-HOME (4663), and Dining Services, (302) 831-6761. Canceling registration will not automatically cancel housing and dining.
If a course is canceled by the University or if a student
withdraws before the end of the late registration period, a full
rebate of tuition is given. There is no rebate of tuition for
course withdrawals after late registration ends on January 7 for 5-week classes, on January 14 for 4-week classes. Nor is there a rebate for students who neglect to officially withdraw from the University.
Financial Aid Recipient Withdrawals:
Financial aid eligibility is based on the cost of education (tuition, mandatory fees, housing, meal plan, books, etc.) incurred for the entire Winter Session and is contingent upon completion of that session. If you are a recipient of Title IV federal financial aid funds** and your enrollment terminates through official withdrawal, your financial aid award must be reviewed for possible adjustment. Federal regulations mandate that any unearned aid be returned to the federal aid programs when you withdraw. The percentage of aid earned is based on the date of withdrawal divided by the total number of days in the session. Title IV recipients are governed by federal policy if they withdraw prior to completing 60% of the session.
** Examples: Direct/Stafford Student Loans, Perkins Loan, Nursing
Student Loan, Supplementary Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG), PELL
Grant, Direct/Parent Loan.
Students are required to adhere to the University's official withdrawal policy when terminating their enrollment prior to the end of a given term. Failure to officially withdraw will result in the cancellation of any Federal financial aid program funds previously awarded for that term. Federal regulations require that funds for ineligible recipients be returned to the financial aid program accounts. If this happens, students will be responsible for any remaining Winter Session charges. Handouts for Title IV recipient withdrawals, explaining the policies, procedures, and examples of Title IV refunds are available upon request through Student Financial Services.
Cancellations must be submitted in writing by mail or
to Dining Services (153 Perkins Student Center) or in person at
the Student Services Building by January 7.
When your Dining Services Agreement is officially cancelled, your student
account will be credited based on a proration of unused dining plan meals
for the remaining days in the term less five days plus the value
of any unused points. Any credit balance in your student account may be
transferred to a FLEX account. Applicable refunds for Winter will be
calculated in proportion to the semester refund schedule.
