Spring 2024

The mission of the UST program is to enhance and support the educational experiences of matriculated students who have a wide variety of interests and have either not yet declared a major or are in transition from one major to another. Our goal is to ensure that students are given the opportunity to explore the many majors available to them before choosing an academic path.

Your academic advisor and the staff of the UST program are committed to your academic success. We will do our best to provide you with the accurate information you need to help make important decisions about your academic interests and goals.

If you would like to speak with an advisor, please schedule an appointment by logging into the Blue Hen Success site or visit the Individualized Academic Advising page for more options. You may also email your advisor directly or contact us at ust-advise@udel.edu.

For general inquiries, feel free to review the FAQs on our website or e-mail us at ust-advise@udel.edu.
