The following phases of registration are detailed below.

Registration Online

Your secure logon to UDSIS will allow you to initiate, view, or instantaneously change your registration . If you have any doubt about logging on, be sure to see the instructions below. Once you log on you will find the registration functions in the first major section of the page:
    - Academics
        - Registration & Drop/Add

Online registration requires that you have established your UD Student Record and know your logon credentials:

If you are unsure of your logon credentials, try them out now by logging on to UDSIS from the "UDSIS" link at the top-right area of the UD-Homepage within the "My UD" item, or and viewing your "Student Center" pages.

If you have not already established a UD student record nor have you been a UD employee, you can create your own new student record, using the "Quick Bio" form at
If that web page does not accept your input, it is probably because we already have a partial student record for you. In that case, our Continuing Studies Division can assist you if you email

If you have forgotten or want to reset your UD-PIN, you may do so from the UDSIS logon screen, where there is a hyperlink to "Change of Reset PIN". If you need additional assistance, please call the Registrar's Office at (302) 831-2131 for assistance during business hours (Mon.-Fri.; 8 a.m. - 5 p.m.).

Details and step-by-step instructions are on the: Registrar's website

Registration & Drop/Add:

October 29 - January 10 for 5-week classes
October 29 - January 17 for 4-week classes

Changes in registration after that time must be requested through the Course Permit webform. There are no tuition refunds for courses from which you would withdraw after those dates.

Beginning October 29 students may register or change their registration either on the Web, at the Registrar's Office on the first floor of the University Visitor Center, or at the Continuing Studies site. Access initially will be based on your classification, which in turn is based on the number of credits you will have earned by the end of the fall semester.
        "Appointments" for each student to begin to register will be posted on their personal Student Center page in UDSIS during early October. Students may continue to register and drop/add through UDSIS or in-person from their beginning appointment through the end of the free drop/add period, January 10 for 5-week classes and January 17 for 4-week classes.
        Students may enroll for no more than seven credits during Winter 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.

After the Free Drop/Add Period
(after January 10 for 5-week classes... and... after January 17 for 4-week classes)

(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. In addition, a $25 fee is charged for a change of registration at this time.

The last day to change your grading basis or withdraw from courses without academic penalty is January 25 for 5-week classes and January 29 for 4-week classes. After these dates the permission of the Assistant Dean is required for all registration changes. Course withdrawals will be permitted only for unusual circumstances beyond a student's control and not for reasons of academic performance. Such approval does not alleviate the financial obligation incurred by a late withdrawal.


University of Delaware students should consult with their advisors concerning course selection . See the "Advising" section at the bottom of the webpage at Students attending other colleges or universities should confer with officials at their home institution regarding transfer of credits. Academic advisement and career exploration is provided for Continuing Education students at the ACCESS Center, 302-831-8843. High school students are required to see an ACCESS counselor and receive advisement before registering for courses.

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 (after January 10 for 5-week classes and after January 17 for 4-week classes) 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.

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. A change of grade status after the Free Drop Add period (after January 10 for 5-week classes and after January 17 for 4-week classes) incurs a $25 registration change fee.

Types of Courses

Most Winter 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 this website.

Supervised studyis 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.

Course Schedules

Your Winter course schedule will be constantly available in UDSIS. 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.
