Delaware State University

About: "Delaware State University has a long and proud history as one of America’s Historically Black Colleges and Universities, and takes pride in its heritage as one of the country’s first land-grant educational institutions, rooted early on in agriculture and education. Delaware State currently offers 54 undergraduate degree options, an impressive number for a school of DSU’s size (averaging 3,700 students). It also offers 23 master’s degree programs, recently adding a new program in molecular and cellular neuroscience, as well as five doctoral degree programs in areas such as interdisciplinary applied mathematics/mathematical physics and educational leadership.

Delaware State is located in the historic city of Dover, the capital of Delaware, which has a geographical position at the center of the state. Dover’s short distance from other major cities, including Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington, DC, makes it still feel close to metropolitan life. Delaware State University provides a comprehensive four-year education at a competitive cost and value compared to other schools in the region. With a changing world comes a changing campus, and DSU prepares its students for the global challenges of the new millennium and beyond. The University is a welcome center for learning for people from many cultural backgrounds who speak several different languages and dialects. After graduation—wherever life takes them—our students are truly “making their mark on the world.”

Admission Info: 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 are also considered when evaluating applications for admission.

Scholarship/Financial Aid: The financial aid process at Delaware State University primarily consists of federal funds. The definition of financial aid is “assistance given to help meet the student’s cost of attendance.” Grants, scholarships, loans and work-study programs are all considered financial aid. With the exception of some scholarships, most financial aid is awarded on the basis of demonstrated need.
