A Delgado placement test is required unless your ACT scores are less than 3 years old and indicate you have an 18 or higher in English and math or a 17 or higher in reading. If your ACT scores exempt you from taking a placement assessment, you must schedule an Advising session. During the session, you will be advised for a class schedule (www.dcc.edu); select Student Services; Advising & Testing; Select Placement.

Students are provisionally admitted to Delgado Community College and have 30 days after the semester begins to submit either a high school or GED/ High School equivalency transcript and proof of immunization to the Office of  Admissions.

Delgado no longer allows students to hand deliver official high school transcripts to the college. If you are a graduate of a Louisiana high school, May 2003 and after, and if your school uses the Student Transcript System, you are not required to submit a high school transcript. However, if you graduated from a Louisiana high school prior to May 2003 or from a non-Louisiana high school or have a GED/ high school equivalency diploma, you must submit an official high school or GED /high school equivalency transcript to the Admissions Office. You must have the official transcript mailed directly to us.
