Delta Pilot Basics
We are proudly recruiting pilots for first officer positions. As a new Delta first officer, you have an opportunity to initially be assigned to a MD88/90, a 737NG, or even a 757/767 aircraft type among our fleet of more than 440 aircraft. To qualify for employment as a pilot with Delta you must meet all of the following requirements.

General Requirements
At least 21 years of age
Graduate of a four-year degree program from a college or university accredited by a recognized accrediting organization. Postgraduate education will be given favorable consideration
Current passport or other travel documents enabling the bearer to freely exit and re-enter the U.S. (multiple reentry status) and be legally eligible to work in the U.S. (possess proper working documents)
FAA Requirements
FAA commercial fixed-wing pilot license with an instrument rating
Current FAA First Class Medical Certificate
Passing score on FAA ATP written exam preferred
Flight Time Requirements
Minimum of 1,200 hours of total documented flight time
Minimum of 1,000 hours of fixed wing turboprop or turbofan time
When evaluating the flight time of applicants meeting the basic qualifications, consideration will be given to, among other things, quality, quantity, recency, and verifiability of training; complexity of aircraft flown; types of flight operations; hours flown as PIC; and recency and extent of flying experience. Applicants invited to interview must provide appropriate documentation of all flight hours.

DOT required pre-employment drug test and a medical exam administered by Delta
TSA required fingerprint based Criminal History Records Check and a Delta background check


I don't know of an exception to the above information. But then again, I learn a lot of things I did not know.

From what I understand there are no exceptions. I know of one person that has a four year degree, but the school is not currently accredited. It was at the tine of graduation, but not now. Because of this, the person in question was not granted an interview.
So, basically, no such luck.
