Four steps for admission to our credit course programs

Delaware Technical Community College has an open-door admissions policy limited only by the following criteria: a student must be a high school graduate or the equivalent, or at least eighteen years of age and able to benefit from instruction.


Submit an Application to the College:


Plan Your Educational Financing (if needed):

Review the college's tuition and fees. Students are encouraged to apply for federal financial aid (FAFSA) no later than April 1 and submit all documents by May 1 for the fall semester.


Complete the Supplemental Documentation Form to submit your college readiness documentation and your proof of Delaware residency. This form can only be accessed if you have activated your Delaware Tech account.

Please Note: To be considered an in-state student, you must submit your Delaware proof of residency on or before registering for classes. Failure to do so will result in an "out-of-state student" designation, significantly increasing tuition owed.

Show college readiness in one of these ways:

  • 3.0 (83%) or higher high school GPA (final junior or senior year unofficial transcript. Official final HS senior transcripts will still be required in Step 2 for financial aid purposes)
  • SAT scores in English (480+) or math (varies – discuss with academic counselor)
  • Enrollment in an International Baccalaureate (IB) program
  • Enrollment in the Academic Challenge program
  • Foundations of College English (75 or higher) or math course (77 or higher)
  • A or B grade in AP math or English course
  • A or B grade in Pre-Calculus or Calculus
  • Previous college credit (C- or better in college-level math or English literature courses) or degree.
  • GED College-Ready score of 165+

If students do not have one of these indicators to demonstrate college readiness, they may still enter a college-level course by taking advantage of our co-requisite support model to refresh their skills. This allows students to start directly with their academic program requirements and receive additional support from their instructor each week to ensure they are successful.

Students can also schedule to take our Accuplacer college placement test by contacting their campus. Based on the results of the placement test, students may opt to only take college-level courses. The College Readiness webpage provides contact information to schedule the Accuplacer college placement test.

Provide Proof of Delaware Residency (if applicable).

  • Present your Delaware driver's license or State I.D.

For additional proof of residency options please visit the College Catalog residency policy and submit this proof with the Declaration of Residency form found at the MyDTCC/Student Information System portal (access is available once you complete the application process).


Meet with an academic counselor for REQUIRED initial advisement. If you have questions regarding registration, financial aid, or anything else, please contact student support.
