Late Registration is from 9 a.m.-8 p.m. at the Marple Campus, the Southeast Center in Sharon Hill, the Downingtown Campus, and the Pennocks Bridge Campus in West Grove. The entire process could take between 1 to 4 hours depending upon lines and where you are in the process.

Current immigration regulations prohibit B and F2 visa holders from enrolling in credit courses.
Students applying for financial aid must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Students can access this form at www.fafsa.ed.gov. Students applying for financial aid for fall 2012 should complete the 2012-2013 form. The school code for Delaware County Community College is 007110.
If you applied for financial aid after July 1, 2012, you must be prepared to pay your tuition and fees when you register. Should you receive financial aid, your account will be adjusted accordingly. Remember, the process can take time, so getting on the College’s payment plan will hold your classes while you wait for final eligibility determination. Plan accordingly and check your status frequently on delaGATE.
Financial aid applicants are required to submit an official, final high school or GED transcript to the Student Records Office. Financial aid will not be disbursed until all requirements are met, including the official transcript received in Student Records.

You can pay in full or take advantage of the payment plan by paying half of your bill plus a $30 processing fee. One additional payment is due during the semester. Please talk to a cashier about setting up the payment plan and the payment schedule. The College accepts, cash, checks, money orders, Visa, MasterCard, Discover Card and American Express. Payment by credit card or electronic check can be made through the student portal delaGATE, delagate.dccc.edu.
