Government Contracting and Procurement Law: Frequently Asked Questions

How do I apply?

Please visit our application page to sign up for the program.

What are the requirements for admission?

Applicants are required to have a Bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university. Applicants must complete our online application form, which includes submitting contact information for two references, and completing a personal statement describing why the applicant is interested in the program. We also require official transcripts be sent to us directly from all colleges or universities attended.

Can I get financial aid?

Several financial aid options are available for those who qualify. If you are a U.S. citizen or eligible non-citizen and would like to take out Federal student loans to cover costs, you will first need to complete the 2017-2018 FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) and have the results sent to UD. Our school code is 003127. Valid FAFSAs will then allow us to create a financial aid award offering.

If your tuition is being funded through the Department of the Air Force, you will need to select your course from the AI Portal and have it approved through your supervisor, who will then notify UD’s Office of Student Accounts. Funds will be sent directly to UD.

If you will receive funding from your employer or organization based on course completion and/or grades, and you would like to defer payments, your employer will need to submit a letter of sponsorship to us. You may then sign up for our Deferment Plan for UD's Employer Reimbursement.

When do classes meet?
  • During the Fall 2017 semester, class sessions will be conducted on Tuesday evenings from 6:30 pm ET to 9:30 pm ET. Students have the option to register for a live class meeting in Room 103 of Keller Hall (the School of Law) or a synchronous online class meeting. The first class meeting will take place on August 29, 2017.
  • If a sufficient demand exists, additional course sections may be added.
What if I am out-of-state and cannot attend onsite?

The entire program is available online. You will engage in what is known as “synchronous distance learning,” which means you will log on to your computer at the same time the class is meeting live in Dayton (during the Fall 2017 semester, Tuesdays from 6:30 pm ET to 9:30 pm ET). You will interact with your teacher and with classmates in Dayton and around the nation.

What is the application deadline?

Applications for the Fall semester must be complete by Tuesday, August 22, 2017.
