Colleges in Delaware: Universities, Trade and Technical Schools

Delaware Colleges Summary

As might be expected given its size, Deleware has a relatively small number of colleges and adult education schools with at total of 16 as of 2005. It's also one of only 12 states with fewer than 100,000 enrolled students with just over 50,000.

However, the percentage of Delaware's population that is enrolled (more than 6.5%) is higher than the national average. This is in spite of the fact that it has only 5 public colleges (which are the types of schools that tend to have the largest enrollment). The SAT scores required by Delaware Colleges are the lowest in the country.

For-profit school enrollees are relatively scarce in Delaware with only 1.46% of the students attending for-profit schools (the 2nd lowest percentage in the country). The largest and most well known school is the University of Delaware, with more than 20,000 students.
