For more than 10 years, Delaware Technical Community College has provided last-dollar-in tuition for local students who maintain at least a 2.5 GPA. Through nearly $5 million in annual funding from the state, more than 7,000 students have benefited from the program. Building on the SEED scholarship’s success, in 2010 the state created a new scholarship to cover tuition at Delaware State University.
A new first-year student shall be admitted and attend classes full-time (12 credits or more) at DTCC no later than the fall semester immediately after the student’s graduation from a Delaware public or non-public high school.
To be eligible for the SEED Scholarship program, a student must satisfy Delaware residency requirements as set forth in Delaware Tech’s residency policy and be enrolled full-time on a degree-seeking basis.
A student shall have graduated from a Delaware public or non-public high school with a minimum cumulative average of either 80 or higher on a 100 point scale, a grade point average (GPA) of 2.5 or higher on a 4.0 scale as indicated on the student’s official high school transcript, or a letter grade of C+.
The equivalency standards for Delaware home-schooled students shall be a complete home schooled academic transcript, or a combined score of 1350 on the new SAT or a composite ACT score of at least 19.
