The mission of the Office of Student Success is to coordinate an intentionally designed, comprehensive array of resources and services that guide students to degree completion at Delaware Valley University. This is accomplished through promoting academic goal setting and skill development, personal transition to the university setting and effective decision-making.

Success advisors work 1:1 with each student to ensure that the student's success plan is individualized and congruent with their academic goals and future career plans while they’re at DelVal.

We are located on the second floor of Segal Hall.

Hiatus & Withdrawal Information

From time to time, students may need to take time away (hiatus) from the University for medical, mental-health or personal reasons, or to completely discontinue (withdrawal) enrollment as a degree-seeking student.

By policy matriculated students must receive approval to leave the University. This procedure is designed to engage students in decision-making and solution-seeking prior to officially choosing to depart. The complete policy can be found in the University Catalogue in the Hiatus and Withdrawal from the University section, linked here: Hiatus and Withdrawal from the University

For a student considering departure, the procedure is to complete a brief form. Upon receipt, a staff member will reach out directly to further discuss the request. The appropriate forms are below:
