Visiting Students

Delaware County Community College defines “visiting students” as individuals who are matriculated at another college or university and who wish to enroll at our College for course work which will transfer back to their home institution.

To enroll at our College as a visiting student, please follow the simple steps below. It is strongly recommended that you submit all of the paperwork together. Steps 2 through 4 must be completed for each semester you plan to attend as a visiting student. Step 1 may need to be completed again if it has been a year or longer since you last attended here.

Step 1: Complete a Delaware County Community College Application for Admission. Be sure to include a “major” (academic program) code in the appropriate space on the application form. Applications cannot be processed without a major code.

Step 2: Get a letter from your advisor on your school letterhead or a form from your school that authorizes enrollment at our College for the purposes of transferring the credits back to your home institution. This authorization must indicate the specific Delaware County Community College course or courses you wish to take.  It’s important to discuss your plans with your home institution so they can advise you.

Step 3: Include a note providing the specific course information for the class(es) in which you wish to enroll, including CRN (course reference #), SUBJ (subject code), CRS (credits), SEC (section), and TITLE (course title).

Step 4: Mail all of the above information together to:

Delaware County Community College

Consider transferring your credits to Delaware County Community College! We recommend that visiting students submit an official transcript and transfer their credits to the College. Transferring credits to our College makes registering for classes easier. Many of our classes have pre-requisites that you may have completed at your home institution. Unless you transfer those pre-requisites to us, you may be prevented from registering online. When you transfer credits to us, you do not lose your credits at your home school.
