Here at Delaware Technical & Community College (DTCC) we have developed 
a relationship with the University of Delaware (UD) in which UD offers 
an Associates in Arts program at DTCC run by a UD administrator, taught 
by UD professors, priced at our tuition rates (only $81.50/credit versus 
$276/credit), and housed on our campus.  These students would, in most 
cases, not be admitted to UD if applying under regular admissions.  They 
successfully complete a pre-planned two-year program in liberal arts and 
then are automatically admitted into UD.  The catch here is that 
depending upon how well they do in the AA program, they may or may not 
be admitted into the program of their choice at UD or they may not have 
taken all of the necessary pre-req courses to pick up at the third year 
level in the program of their choice, thus extending their time at UD.

Here's the web address for the program

Hope this helps,
