Associate in Arts Program:  In collaboration with Delaware Technical and Community College


The University of Delaware's Associate in Arts Program (AAP) offers Delawareans all the strengths of a traditional liberal arts education and the prestige of a University of Delaware degree. The associate in arts degree is awarded by the University upon completion of the required 60 credits of coursework, with a minimum GPA of 2.0.  Designed to be completed in two years, the non-residential program begins with a Freshman Seminar designed to promote academic success, along with coursework in Mathematics, Humanities, Social Sciences, Natural Sciences, and Languages. The associate in arts courses simultaneously fulfill the core requirements for majors leading to the bachelor's degree. AAP students enjoy an uninterrupted transition from the associate degree program to a bachelor's degree program in the junior year.
