The Summer Developmental Program (SDP) is an eight-week academic program designed for students who desire an alternate route to admission to a four-year university.

At Delta State University, the SDP extends from Wednesday, June 1, 2016, through Thursday, July 21, 2016. To allow students time to check into their residence halls, the first day will begin at 9:00 a.m. Wednesday, June 1, 2016. Delta State will operate on a four-day week (Monday – Thursday) throughout the summer. The normal class day begins promptly at 8:00 a.m. and extends until 3:35 p.m.

If you choose to live in a residence hall during the summer program, you will need to contact our Department of Housing and Residence Life. A $50 deposit is required prior to room assignment for the upcoming summer. Our housing staff team, located in Bailey 108, will be glad to help you with your request. You may reach them at (662) 846-4151.
