Registering for Classes

Delgado offers convenient ways for students to register for classes — on the Internet or in person for priority registration or during regular registration dates. The following information can help you determine the best method for your registration needs.

General Information

  • All students must have a picture ID (school ID, driver’s license, etc.) to register.
  • If you send someone else to register for you, s/he must have a copy of your picture ID and a signed note from you giving him/her permission to register you for specific classes.
  • Continuing students who have completed their basic education courses may register in person or via the Web. Students taking developmental courses must register in person. Re-admit students can only register online 24 hours after the admissions application has been accepted.
  • All students are required to have Delgado picture IDs made after tuition for the semester has been paid
  • Students who have never attended college need to take placement tests at one of the scheduled placement test times. Registration times will be given to students when they take the placement tests.
  • Transfer students can register online 24 hours after their admissions application has been accepted. Transfer students must provide grade reports or unofficial transcripts at the time of registration if they are registering for classes that have prerequisites. These students will then have 30 days from the start of classes to provide official transcripts and meet other admissions requirements. Transfer students should refer to the College Catalog online for course descriptions and prerequisites or corequisites.
  • Beginning Jan. 18, 2012, students must come prepared to pay their tuition, have completed the financial assistance process or have proof that a third party is paying their tuition. Students who register via the Web must also pay by credit card or bring their payments to their location. Students who do not pay or make arrangements at the close of each registration day will have their schedules deleted.

Registering for Classes on the Internet

Register for your classes on the Internet. It’s fast, easy, and fun. Go to the Delgado website at www.dcc.edu, then

  1. Click on Current Students
  2. Under Resources, click on Student Self-Serve
  3. Click on Enter Student Services
  4. Enter your eight-digit student College-wide ID number and four-digit PIN. All students are initially assigned a two-digit day/two-digit year of birth as a PIN (for example, if your birth date is 02/18/2007, your PIN is 1807). This number must be changed to a new four-digit PIN when you initially access the Web registration system.
  5. You may also change your PIN at any time in person in the Office of the Registrar. Be sure to remember your new PIN! Click LOGIN.
  6. Under REGISTRATION, click DROP/ADD; Select term and click on SELECT; do not press enter
  7. Enter five-digit course call number. If you do not know the five-digit course call number, click COURSE SELECTION and highlight subject. Click SELECT to find five-digit course call number.
  8. Click DROP/ADD CLASSES, enter five-digit course call number(s) and click SUBMIT. To view your tuition fees click ACCOUNT SUMMARY.

You can also choose several other options from STUDENT SERVICES MENU, including the College Catalog, available course selections and financial assistance.

Registration Holds

Continuing students may register for classes as long as they do not have any registration holds. These holds may result from

  • Failure to pay all outstanding debts owed to the College
  • Failure to provide all official transcripts, immunization forms, test scores, etc. required to meet College admissions requirements
  • Admission as a cross-enrolled or other special category student for one semester only
  • Other special circumstances that limit a student’s ability to register.

To clear a hold, contact the Office of the Registrar at the location where you applied.
