New Student Information

Welcome New Hornets! 

Review the following information to help you adjust to life as a new Delaware State University student:

Automobiles on Campus

All students may have automobiles on campus except freshman resident students. Parking spaces are provided in designated areas for resident and commuter students. Students with automobiles can obtain a parking decal by going to the Permit Store.  Students will receive a decal sticker that must be displayed as directed at all times. There is an annual fee of $70 for parking.

Campus Mail

All resident students are eligible to rent campus mailboxes. A student is issued a mailbox only once during a continuous period of enrollment. There is a thirty-five ($35) dollar rental fee. Ten dollars ($10) will be refunded, providing the key is returned to the Mail Room within two weeks of the actual termination of resident status. Additional regulations are distributed to box holders.

Cell Phones in the Classroom

The use of cellular phones and pagers is expressly prohibited in academic classrooms and laboratories. All such telephones and pagers, which make noise, must be kept in the “Off” position while attending classes. Students in non-compliance may be asked to leave the classroom. Exceptions to this policy may be approved only by the course instructor.

Identification Cards

Permanent ID cards are issued upon matriculation. This card is the student’s official University identification and must be in his or her possession at all times. It is validated each semester upon payment of applicable fees. The ID card is the property of the University and must be surrendered upon request. It becomes void upon withdrawal and must be returned to the Office of Student Accounts. Loss of an ID card should be reported promptly to the Office of Student Accounts so that a replacement card may be issued for a minimal fee. New and replacement ID pictures are taken from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Pre-Entrance Exams

All students must have a pre-entrance physical examination by a Primary Health Care Provider and the results submitted to the Student Health Center on the appropriate form in order to complete the registration process, receive clearance to move into campus housing, and receive health care services. 

All full-time incoming freshmen, transfer, and graduate students are required to provide proof of the following immunizations/screenings: Measles, Mumps, and Rubella; Tetanus-Diphtheria-Pertussis; Meningococcal Meningitis; and a recent Tuberculosis (TB) risk assessment screening and/or the Tuberculin Skin Test or blood test (refer to the Student Health Form for additional information).
