To meet its academic and research goals as well as to be responsive
to the multicultural backgrounds of prospective students, a wide
spectrum of criteria are utilized in assessing a prospective student's
motivation, interest, and ability to perform successfully in the 4+1
The 4+1 programs are only available to students who are enrolled at the University of Delaware as Public Policy or Organizational & Community Leadership (OCL) majors.
Application to either 4+1 program occurs in the fall semester of the
junior year after the student has completed at least 60 credit hours,
including UAPP 110, 225, and 325.
Those admitted to the 4+1 programs must complete all requirements for their undergraduate degree. OCL majors must also complete a minor in Public Policy.
Those admitted to a 4+1 program typically will have a 3.3 or higher cumulative GPA.
A University of Delaware graduate application must be completed. Begin your online application here.
