UD Raises Tuition Fees for Upcoming School Year

NEWARK, De.- University of Delaware has announced its tuition and fees for the 2018-19 academic year.

Undergraduate tuition and fees at UD for the 2018-19 school year will increase by $520 for Delawareans (to $13,680) and by $1,160 for nonresidents (to $34,310).

This year there are no increases in the Student Health Service Fee or the Student Center Fee; the Student Comprehensive Fee is increasing by $140 to $738. Room and board increases for the coming year are 4.5% and 4%, respectively.

Total annual cost for most undergraduates living on campus (including tuition, mandatory fees, room and board) will be $26,544 for Delawareans (an increase of $1,052) and $47,174 for nonresidents (an increase of $1,692). Campus housing and dining options vary, and the standard housing and dining options, totaling $12,864, are used here.

A one-time New Student Orientation fee charged to incoming new students is increased from $145 to $230. UD said this increase, the first since the addition of the online math placement process in 2012, will support enhanced orientation programming for new students, specifically 1743 Welcome Days; transition programs for specific groups such as transfer and first generation students; and the online math placement process.

UD announced earlier this year that it is instituting a differential charge for undergraduate students in three areas: the Lerner College of Business and Economics, the College of Engineering and the School of Nursing. UD explained this charge will help align resources with the cost of instruction for these areas, which is higher than in other programs at the school.

For 2018-19, the annual differential charge for full-time students in these areas will be $1,000. Part-time students will be assessed $500 per year. For students who were already enrolled in these programs as of the spring 2018 semester, the differential charge will be discounted over the next few years as it is being implemented.

Full-time tuition and fees for students in the University’s Associate in Arts Program, located on the Wilmington, Dover and Georgetown campuses of Delaware Technical Community College, will increase by $63 (to $2,034) for Delaware residents and by $157 (to $5,077) for out-of-state students.

Graduate tuition rates vary by program and can found here. The base graduate tuition per-credit hour rate for 2018-19 will increase by 3.2 percent (up $57 to $1,827 per credit hour).

“Offering our students the best possible education at a reasonable cost is a top priority for us as a University. To that end, we continue to assist our students with the financial and scholarship support they need to complete their degrees, which is the first step toward their successful careers and the opportunity to make a positive difference for communities in Delaware and around the world.” University of Delaware Provost Robin W. Morgan said in a news release.
