The Delaware College of Art and Design faculty, staff, and Board of Trustees are proud of our 27-year history of training the next generation of designers and artists and being a partner to the Wilmington community.

This makes our decision to wind down operations, stop accepting students, and discontinue teaching classes incredibly difficult. Beginning with the ‘24-’25 school year, we will no longer be offering classes or conferring degrees.

The entire DCAD team is committed to helping our 50 rising second-year students transfer to partner schools to finish their education and start their careers. We will also be providing options for our incoming first-year students.

We currently have agreements with the Pennsylvania College of Art and Design and Moore College of Art and Design to accept our incoming students and rising second-year students, including the credits they have earned at DCAD.
