The colleges of DCCCD have an open-door admissions policy to ensure that every person has the opportunity to get a college education.
To take classes for college credit, you must first complete the application for admission. Apply early to make sure you have plenty of time to visit with an advisor, complete assessment testing and plan your course schedule. See our
admission requirements for more information.

residency status. The amount of tuition charged is based on your residency classification.
