Parents and Families

You are here


We are happy to welcome your family to our Delaware State University community. As your student learns and grows, we know that his or her time spent at DSU will be both rewarding and challenging.

Through information on this site and our email newsletter, ParentBuzz, we will help you stay connected to campus. We welcome your ideas and feedback during your student's DSU experience.

Fall 2014 payment and tuition payment plan dates and deadlines

The fall 2014 semester will be here before we know it. The payment for fall 2014 is due July 10. As your student prepares for the fall semester, please click here for tips on viewing an E-bill statement and target dates for enrolling in the tuition payment plan.

Did you know? Wednesdays we're open late

For your convenience, the offices on the first floor of the Administration Building at Delaware State University -- including the offices of Admissions, Financial Aid, Records and Registration, and Student Accounts -- are open late on Wednesdays to accommodate students and their families who find it hard to stop by during regular business hours. Take care of a variety of needs -- registering for classes, having financial aid questions answered, checking a student account status and more -- each Wednesday until 6 p.m.

Cost calculator is available online

Students and their families are encouraged to use the new online Net Price Calculator to learn more about the costs of pursuing an education at DSU and the financial aid and scholarship options that may be available to help students.
