Getting started as a graduate student
Welcome to the graduate programs in the School of Education at the University of Delaware! You are joining a talented group of students who are committed to developing academically and professionally in a rigorous and supportive academic environment.
The first step in becoming a School of Education graduate student is accepting your offer of admission in the electronic application system. A few days later, you will receive an email from the Office of Graduate and Professional Education containing a UD login and PIN.
Soon after being admitted, you will receive a letter from the School of Education indicating your faculty advisor and giving you some important information about becoming a new student. Once you have received your PIN and contacted your faculty advisor about which courses to take, you are able to register any time the course registration period is open. Students in most programs do not have difficulty obtaining places in their first semester courses because we reserve spaces for our students in the required courses.
The School of Education also holds required orientation sessions for new students, so plan to attend this important session. There is also a wealth of information about getting started on campus, including getting your ID card that available through the Office of Graduate and Professional Education.
Registering for classes
Within a few days after accepting your offer of admission, you will receive an email containing login information and your PIN. You can use that to log in to UDSIS. You will use UDSIS to do tasks such as register for courses, view and pay your bill and print your schedule. If you encounter any trouble with your login, please contact the Help Desk.
Before registering for courses, it is very important that you contact your advisor so that you are certain that you have the appropriate classes for your first semester. You should also consult your program’s course requirements to be sure you are completing the correct courses.
After registering for classes, your account will be charged the appropriate tuition. You can view your account statement through UDSIS and pay your bill from there. Students who receive scholarships will have the tuition applied to their accounts. If you have questions about your bill, you can contact Student Financial Services.
