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 http://www.aacsb.edu/accreditation/AccreditedMembers.asp. 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, ECON101, and ECON103 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, please click here for the detailed instructions from the Transfer Credit Office. 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 $1.5 million student-led Blue Hen Investment Club, 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 Meryl Gardner, whose research on foods and moods was recently published in the Journal of Consumer Psychology - are thought leaders who command attention from influential business audiences, economists and policy makers.

All Lerner College departments offer discovery learning experiences and emphasize data-based analytics to enrich the student experience. Here, students at Vita Nova, our award-winning restaurant run through HRIM, joined professional chefs and winemakers in hosting a 2014 Mid-Atlantic Wine and Food Festival event.

The Institute for Financial Services Analytics is a collaboration between the Lerner College, UD's College of Engineering and JPMorgan Chase, and hosts events for academics and the business community designed to address consumer analytics and industry applications.

Undergraduate scholarships, made possible through the generosity of alumni and friends, enable us to support promising scholars. Here, Delaware Gov. Jack Markell and his mother, Leni Markell, join recipients of the William Markell Scholarship (center), which benefits students in Accounting and MIS.
