Candidates must satisfactorily complete the requirements of the major study area in which they are enrolled to be eligible for graduation.    A candidate for the baccalaureate degree must complete the last thirty (30) semester hours of credits at Delaware State University. However, a student may enroll in six to eight (6-8) hours of courses at another institution upon approval of the department chairperson and the academic dean.   Students who transfer from other institutions must earn a minimum of thirty (30) semester hours at Delaware State University. Degree Audits All degree audits must be done through your academic advisor and sent to the Records & Registration Office by the published deadlines.

If a student is pursuing two (2) fields of study for which the same degree is awarded, then only one (1) diploma will be granted, but both fields of study will be listed on the diploma. To be eligible for a second degree: 1) course work must be taken in two fields of study and 2) the student must satisfy the curriculum requirements of both departments. A student returning to Delaware State University for a second degree or major must officially declare a major in the second area and need only satisfy the additional requirements for the second major in order for the second baccalaureate degree to be conferred.
