Admissions Checklist


Admissions Checklist

Admission to our academic programs operates on a first-come, first-served basis. Applicants must complete the following requirements to be eligible for admission. Please visit the Continuing Education & Customized Training page if you are seeking noncredit courses for training purposes or professional development.

  • Visiting the campus to meet with an advisor is the best way to navigate the admissions process. Although not required, our Tuesday Campus Visit is something we strongly recommend for every student applying to DCTC.
  • Campus Visits are held every Tuesday at 12:45 p.m.
  • No appointment necessary.
  • If Tuesday visits are not possible, please contact an admissions advisor at for a one-on-one appointment.
  • Use the payment link on the final application page to securely pay your fee with a credit/debit card. If you've already applied, you can pay from the application status page.
  • Payment is due before your acceptance to DCTC
  • If submitting a paper application via mail or in-person, checks may be made payable to DCTC

If you graduated from high school within the past five years, you must submit your high school transcript. GED recipients must provide a copy of a GED certificate. College students or graduates who wish to transfer college credits must provide official college transcripts. Official transcripts should be sent directly to DCTC from the previous college. Transcripts submitted in person must be in a sealed envelope.
