In order to assist students and families affected by flooding in south Louisiana, Delgado Community College announces an extended registration period for the Fall 2016 semester.
Registration will continue through Friday, August 19 instead of ending on August 16. Students will have an additional three days to be admitted to the college and register for classes.
“We want to make certain that everyone making the decision to be with us as a student this fall has enough time to complete the registration process and get started on achieving their goals,” said Delgado Chancellor Joan Y. Davis.
As well as offering associate’s degrees and transferable college credits, Delgado provides diplomas and certificates in dozens of professional and technical areas. Admission to Delgado is non-competitive, making higher education accessible to anyone with a high school diploma or the equivalent.
Delgado offers instruction online and at multiple locations, including the City Park, West Bank (Algiers), Sidney Collier and Charity School of Nursing campuses in New Orleans and locations in Slidell and Metairie.
Founded in 1921, Delgado has the highest enrollment—16,520 in Fall 2015—among all colleges and universities in New Orleans.
Delgado is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. The college has held this accreditation since 1971. Individual programs at Delgado are also accredited by industry-specific accrediting agencies.
