The State College for Colored Students was established on May 15, 1891, by the Delaware General Assembly. It first awarded degrees in 1898. In 1944, the Middle States Commission on Higher Education awarded the college provisional accreditation. Three years later, the institution became Delaware State College by legislative action. Although its accreditation was revoked in 1949, it was regained in 1957. On July 1, 1993, the institution changed its name yet again, this time to Delaware State University.
