Distance Learning Application

The University of Delaware seeks to attract academically ambitious and creative applicants from a variety of cultural and racial backgrounds and geographic regions. Distance Learning systems provide a greater level of flexibility to busy professionals interested in pursuing a college degree.

DEGREE OPTIONS Distance Learning students may take selected courses for personal growth or professional development and earn a degree through the University of Delaware. Students can earn a degree in two areas through distance learning systems—an Associate in Arts degree or a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing. In order for students to earn a degree, they must submit the Distance Learning Application for Admission and meet all regular University of Delaware admission requirements. Degree completion for distance learners requires satisfying the same curriculum requirements as non-distance learners. To receive a University of Delaware bachelor’s degree, admitted students must complete 90 of the first 100 credits or 30 of the last 36 credits, full- or part-time through the University of Delaware.
