Students Transferring into HDFS

Are you considering the Human Services, Human Relations Administration or Early Childhood Education major?

Each year many students join our department from other majors and/or other campuses to learn about human services, early childhood education, human resources and family studies.  We are happy to work with you to see how the courses you have already taken fit into the degree requirements and how the majors can meet your career goals.

For more information, contact the Advisement Center at (302) 831-6500 to set up an appointment with an advisor and visit the transfer section of the Academic Policies and Procedures.  Current UD students looking to switch into a non-restricted major (Human Services: Administration and Family Policy, Community Based Social Entrepreneurship and Early Childhood Devlopment concentrations) must meet with an advisor before they can be approved for the major.  For students looking to switch into one of our restricted majors as noted below, you’ll need to complete the advisement meeting and an application process:

Internal Transfer Application for Early Childhood Education or Human Services: Family and Consumer Sciences (currently on moratorium) 

Internal Transfer Application for Human Relations Administration or Human Services: Clinical Services

Connected Degree program

Students who are enrolled in the Associate in Arts program at the University of Delaware can transfer into the Human Services major and typically complete their BS degree in two more years. Information about transferring between the Associate in Arts program and the Human Services major can be found on the Advisement page of the Associate in Arts Program.

Students who have attended Delaware Technical and Community College can also have many of their courses transferred into either the Human Services major or the Early Childhood Education major. This is referred by as the Connected Degree Programs between Del Tech and the University of Delaware. In the Connected Degree Programs, students start their coursework at Del Tech, and then transfer to the University of Delaware. Both the Human Services major and the Early Childhood Education major participate in the Connected Degree Programs. For further information, see the Registrar’s website.
