How DelVal’s Resources Can Help with Your College Application


Posted on October 13, 2015 by Delaware Valley University.

We know that applying for college can be stressful and a little overwhelming. Meticulously checking every sentence in your essays, scouring over the applications, and gathering everything for your transcript or portfolio is hard on its own, but it’s even harder when you tack on all of the course work you need to complete for your last semester of high school. Don’t you wish you had some help?

Now high school students can finally get some assistance with their college application thanks to the resources from the Delaware Valley University undergraduate admissions staff. Ready to help you are several admission directors and coordinators. Read on to learn some of the questions that DelVal’s resources can answer regarding your college application.

When Should I Apply?
DelVal’s admission process operates on a rolling basis. We consider applications as they come in, so you don’t have to worry about a set deadline. For example, you can apply for the spring 2016 or fall 2016 semesters right now, depending on how quickly you want to begin your college career.

How Do I Apply?
You can submit your application to DelVal either electronically or by mail. You can submit an online application in the form of the Common Application. If you choose to submit an electronic application, you won’t be charged any fees.

Interested students can also submit an application through the mail. You can find it on our Admissions page, print it out, fill it in and then send it to DelVal’s Office of Admission. However, there’s a $50 application fee required if you mail in your application. 

Do I Need to Specify My Intended Program?
Like most college applications, the one for DelVal includes a section where students seeking admission must indicate what program they plan to pursue. 

What If I Don’t Know What Program I Want to Pursue?
If you haven’t determined which program you’re interested in, that’s okay because you can select multiple programs on the application. However, DelVal asks that you number the choices based on the strength of your interest in each area. But you don’t have to commit to a program for four years when you’re admitted, and you can change your program choice. 

DelVal knows that filling out college applications isn’t easy and that you should have assistance available to answer your questions and concerns. That why we’re here to help with the college application process to eliminate some of the stress you may feel. 

If you have any further questions regarding the application process for DelVal, you can contact the Office of Admission at 800.2.DELVAL.
