Delaware Valley University is currently accepting transfer applicants for the fall 2018 start term. Students can choose to study full-time or part-time on DelVal’s campus or, off-campus through DelVal’s part-time bachelor’s degree cohort programs.

Cohort Programs

Through partnerships with Delaware County Community College and Bucks County Community College DelVal offers on-site, part-time degree completion programs that enable associate degree graduates to earn DelVal bachelor’s degrees without ever having to leave their community college campuses. Classes are conveniently held in the evenings and online. Students from the first Bucks and DCCC cohorts participated in DelVal’s Spring 2018 Commencement ceremony. 

Erica Culler, a DCCC graduate, will receive her DelVal bachelor’s degree in counseling psychology in August through the new cohort program and will be starting a graduate program at the University of Pennsylvania in August with a scholarship. 

“My experience at DelVal has been a time of awakening and a period of empowerment,” said Culler. “I learned so much and was challenged to go above and beyond academically. My experience prepared me for an Ivy League graduate school. This program is in my neighborhood, and it's affordable, so, to say the least, I highly recommend it. It was a positive stop on my journey to realizing my academic dreams!”

Aisha Bosket, a Bucks participant, said the cohorts helped with balancing school, work and family responsibilities. 

“Being a single parent and working full time really made me feel like I was never going to find a good program, and when I received the flyer in the mail about the cohort it honestly changed my life,” said Bosket. “Having the opportunity to come to class at night and still have the same opportunities as everyone else, meeting brilliant professors, having Linda and Yolanda Udvardy (director of continuing and professional studies) helping us every step of the way, this is something I will truly never forget.”

Transferring Full Time

Students who transfer from larger colleges and universities often find that the personal community of a smaller school is helpful for achieving their personal and professional goals. 

Francesca Arnold '21, a secondary education major, transferred from a larger university. 

“So far I love DelVal," said Arnold. "Both my lit professors and my ed professors have been extremely helpful and kind, and I feel like I’m really learning a lot."

Alexis (Maylor) Balliet ’14 transferred to DelVal full time in the fall of 2011. After earning her DelVal bachelor's degree in biology, she received a full scholarship to graduate school, where she earned a master’s in biotechnology. Today, she is a quality specialist for Cargill.

“DelVal helped navigate me to where I want to be in my future professionally, academically and in a personal perspective,” said Balliet. “To this day, I’m still 110 percent happy with my decision and wouldn’t have changed a thing.”
