Advance Registration
sessions (fall only) give students an opportunity to take placement tests and arrange a class schedule for the fall semester, eliminating some stress for those who are able to attend. However, these students must also attend the mandatory orientation session, held before the semester begins, in order to receive all pertinent information about college policies that is not presented at Advance Registration.

In anticipation of your arrival to campus, you are encouraged to “Like” DCC on Facebook. Not only can you stay in touch with what is happening on campus, but you can also check out photos from previous years events!
