Delaware College of Art and Design, established through a partnership between Pratt Institute and the Corcoran College of Art and Design, is located in the heart of Wilmington, Delaware, just a short distance from the bustling cultural and business activities of both Philadelphia and Baltimore. With a focus on studio-based education, DCAD provides an intimate learning environment, offering associate degrees in fine arts, animation, graphic design, illustration, interior design, and photography. While the college's campus encompasses an urban setting that leverages the city's resources as part of the students' educational experience, the institution is known for a selective admissions process that seeks students with a strong interest and potential in art and design. The historic circa 1910, six-story Renaissance Revival building, originally a department store, not only adds to the college's unique architectural character but also consists of studio space, a library, and student housing, fostering a focused and inclusive artistic community. Delaware College of Art and Design does not place emphasis on athletics, choosing instead to prioritize the artistic and academic development of its students.

In the most recent statistical year 389 prospective students applied, and 222 were granted admission.  Of those admitted 65 enrolled in the school.  124 students are enrolled on a full time basis, and 5 attend part time. In-state tuition for 2022/2023, excluding room and board, is $27,780 plus fees of $1,720.
