Below are the basic steps for applying for admission if you plan to work toward a certificate or degree at DSCC.
1. Complete the Application for Admission. There is an application deadline for every term.
2. Request Transcripts
3. Request ACT or SAT Scores.
Request that your official ACT scores be sent directly to the Office of Admissions and Records if you are under 21 years of age and plan to work toward a degree or academic certificate.
If over 21, ACT scores are not needed. However, if you are 21 years of age or older and have not already completed college-level English, mathematics and a reading intensive course with grades of D* or higher, you must take the COMPASS test, which is offered through the DSCC Testing Center.
*For students transferring to DSCC prior to Fall 2012, only grades of "C" or higher were accepted. Acceptance of "D" grades only affects students who transfer to DSCC for Fall 2012 or thereafter.
4. Supply Immunization Information.
5. Wait for a letter from the Office of Admissions and Records.
Provisional Admission Applicants who meet the requirements for admission but do not have all the required credentials on file in the Office of Admissions and Records at the time of their first registration may be admitted provisionally for one semester. By the end of the first semester, students whose credentials have still not been received will not be able to access their final grades or their academic transcript and will be denied further enrollment (including the ability to pre-register) until official copies of all credentials are on file in the Office of Admissions and Records. Please note that financial aid will not be awarded until all admission requirements are met.
