Evening and Weekend FAQs
1. Which track is right for me?
Tracks are defined with specific students in mind. If you aren’t sure which track is right for you, our career counselors can help you decide what program works best for your goals. Schedule an appointment with Career Services or take a free career planning and academic strength self-assessment using the Focus 2 Career tool at dcc.edu/go/career-services.
2. Can I change tracks next semester? What if I don’t see a track that is right for me?
Yes, you can swap tracks. Some tracks begin with general education requirements that apply to other areas as well. So, if you change your career goals, you can swap paths without being too far behind. Additionally, if you have a major in mind that doesn’t fit inside one of our tracks, begin with the general education requirements for your program. Delgado will continue to add tracks in future semesters.
3. How long will it take to complete a track?
Motivated students can complete their track in two years and be ready to advance their careers.
