Undergraduate Application Process

Admission may be granted to applicants who have a certificate or diploma from an accredited four-year school or senior high school. It is recommended that students seeking admission to the University follow a college preparatory curriculum in high school.  Applicants must produce a satisfactory high school record.  A minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 or better on a 4.0 scale and a 'C' in the 19 minimum course units is required.  Though heavily considered, admission to the University is not granted solely on the basis of grades and test scores.  The University takes a very holistic approach in evaluating applications for admission.  Community service, demonstrated leadership ability, and special talent is also considered when evaluating applications for admission.

This application may be used by all students seeking undergraduate admission to Delaware State University. All items on the application form marked REQUIRED in red must be completed or the application will not be processed. You will notice that certain areas on the application have drop-down windows which will provide you with a list of items to choose from. Simply make your selection and continue to tab through the application.

Graduate Application Process

For admission to graduate study, applicants must show evidence that they have earned the baccalaureate degree at an accredited college or university and possess the ability to carry out graduate work of high quality. An official transcript of all previous undergraduate and graduate work must be submitted. Applicants for degree status should have a minimum cumulative undergraduate grade point average of 2.5 (on a 4-point scale) and a scholastic average of 3.0 in their undergraduate major. They should have successfully completed specific courses at the undergraduate level in the field in which they plan to pursue a graduate degree and a minimum number of courses in a designated area approved by the specific department. For all graduate programs, official scores on the Graduate Record Examination (GRE), Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT), or the Miller Analogies Test (MAT), or other specified examinations as specifically defined by the individual department or program are required. Individual departments and doctoral programs may have more rigorous standards. Applicants who have not taken the required test(s) may be admitted provisionally, but must satisfy this requirement during the first semester of graduate study in order to continue.  Prospective students must arrange for the official transcript(s) and standardized examination scores to be forwarded to:
