Information For Your Visit

Planning Your Visit

Important COVID update - due to an increase in positive cases among UD students, on-campus activities are paused until Monday, September 13. Therefore, on-campus visits from September 1-September 10 are canceled. Our hope is that this temporary pause will enable us to significantly slow the current spread of COVID in our community so that we can resume in-person activities for the remainder of the semester.

Daily visits are offered Monday through Friday twice per day which include a hour long campus tour led by one of our student ambassadors and an hour long information session led by one of our admission counselors. If you still have questions after your visit, an admission counselor will be available to meet with you.

Please note that appointments are required for prospective student visits.

If you are unable campus in person at this time but are still interested in learning more about UD - we are here for you! We will continue to offer virtual counselor chats.

UD is requiring masks to be worn indoors. If you are visiting a class, you will be required to wear a mask. If you prefer to wear a mask for the whole duration of you visit, you are encouraged to do so.
