Virtual Registration allows prospective students the chance to apply, placement test, participate in an online mandatory New Student Orientation, meet with an advisor and register, all in a single visit. The entire process can take several hours, so please plan accordingly. To save time, prospective students are encouraged to apply online and complete Online Orientation prior to calling in for Virtual Registration, when possible. You will need to complete orientation prior to your advising session.

Current students can also meet with an advisor on Virtual Registration Days or by making an appointment with the Career & Counseling Center. If you plan to participate in a Virtual Registration Day, please start the process by calling 610-723-2000, emailing [email protected] or visiting the Contact Enrollment Central link (log in using delaGATE credentials required).  

Please Note: It is beneficial to students to fill out the FAFSA as early in the process as possible. Financial aid assistance is available on Virtual Registration Days and at many other times.

Virtual Registration Check List

To place you in the correct classes, the College will assess your current level in Math, Reading and English through a tool called Accuplacer. We highly recommend reviewing the Accuplacer Prep information prior to taking the assessment. Doing so may help you score higher on the assessment, which may lead to you needing fewer courses and spending less money. To review for the assessment, visit Welcome to ACCUPLACER – The College Board.

Please note that to test remotely, you will need a computer (desktop or laptop) with the latest operating system and a webcam and microphone. Unfortunately, other devices such as cellphones, Chromebooks, iPads, Surface (and other tablets), as well as MacBook Air will not work.

If you have prior college experience, please have an unofficial copy of your transcript available. We may not be able to complete a full evaluation on the spot; however, we may be able to use your transcript for advising and registration purposes for the day. Please visit for additional information on ways to determine your placement (e.g., SAT, ACT, AP Exams, etc.)

Paying for College
It is important to have a plan to pay for your courses by the appropriate deadline. Below is some information that explains how you can pay for your classes:

  1. Financial Aid Applying for financial aid will help determine if you are able to get help paying for your classes. Please try to complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) in advance. Financial aid assistance is available throughout the day. Visit for more details.
  2. Payment Plan information The College offers payment plan options.

Mandatory New Student Orientation
Learning what to expect as a college student is important as attending college may be different than anything you have ever experienced before. New students are required to complete online orientation or in-person orientation prior to completion of the registration process. Please visit for more information.
