Transfer Credit Policy

What to think about before taking a course at another school

We accept transfer credit from all AACSB-accredited four year universities and a select group of non-AACSB accredited universities. Most state universities, including local branches, are included in the AACSB list. A list of currently accredited institutions can be found at We also accept transfer credit from Delaware State University and Delaware Technical College. For a list of other institutions from which we accept transfer credit, contact Professor Elizabeth Bayley, Undergraduate Program Advisor. Important: Due to our inability to monitor course content and quality, we do not accept transfer credit for economics courses taken at community colleges (except for Delaware Technical College). There are no exceptions.

ECON100, ECON151, and ECON152 are available as on-line UD distance-learning classes. If you cannot find an approved course in your area, you may wish to consider this option.

To assure that the economics course you want to transfer will be accepted by UD, you must first go the Student Services Building and see a Transfer Credit Advisor. You will need approval from the economics department and the Assistant Dean of the college in which you are enrolled. Please bring a description of the course so that we can determine for which course you will receive credit.

The Lerner College is home to a state-of-the-art financial trading facility, the $1.4 million student-led Blue Hen Investment Fund, a student-managed restaurant and hotel, a high-technology development center of a global bank and a start-up experience for students with new business ideas.

Lerner College faculty - like Anu Sivaraman, who is among Social Media Marketing Magazine’s “Top 100 Marketing Professors on Twitter” and’s “Top 50 Marketing Professors on Twitter” - are thought leaders who command attention from influential business audiences, economists and policy makers.

All Lerner College departments offer experience-driven learning and emphasize evidence-based analytics methods to enrich the student experience. Here, finance students visit New York City’s financial districts for a first-hand look at markets trading and to meet with UD alumni.
