Students are provisionally admitted to Delgado Community College and have 30 days after the semester begins to submit a high School or GED transcript and proof of immunization to Admissions Office. 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 , you must submit an official high school or GED to the Admission Office.
Note: Students who plan to receive federal financial assistance must ensure that high school or GED transcripts and proof of immunization have been received by the Admission Office.
