Become a Student in a Single Visit
Walk-In Registration allows prospective students the chance to apply, placement test, participate in an online mandatory New Student Orientation program, meet with an advisor and register, all in a single visit. The entire process can take up to five hours, so please plan accordingly.
To save time, prospective students are encouraged to apply online and complete the Online Orientation prior to coming to campus for Walk-In Registration when possible. For students who would prefer to schedule a time to come to campus for an In-Person Orientation and Course Selection, please visit dccc.edu/orientation for more information.
Current students can also meet with an advisor on Walk-In Registration days or by making an appointment with the Career & Counselor Center. If you plan to attend Walk-In Registration at the Marple Campus, please start the process by going to Enrollment Central in Founders Hall. If you plan to attend one of the branch sites, please start the process at the front desk.
Please Note: It is beneficial to students to fill out the FAFSA as early in the process of possible. Financial aid assistance is available on Walk-In days and at many other times.

Friday: 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. (Must arrrive by 11 a.m. if you need to placement test)
Walk-in Check List
Please review the steps below prior to your visit.
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 less courses and spending less money. To review for the assessment, visit Welcome to ACCUPLACER – The College Board
If you have prior college experience, please bring an unofficial copy of your transcripts with you. 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 dccc.edu/assessment for additional information on ways to determine your placement (i.e., SAT, ACT, AP Exams, etc.)
Paying for College
It is important to have a plan to pay for your courses by the appropriate deadline. Here is some information that explains how to help pay for your classes:
1. Financial Aid
Applying for Financial Aid will help determine if you're 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 dccc.edu/financialaid for more details.
2. Payment Plan information
The College offers payment plan options.
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 either online or in-person orientation prior to completion of the registration process. Please visit dccc.edu/orientation for more information.
