  • Applying to Del Mar College

    Del Mar College has an “open door” admission policy. In-coming students need to complete an application for admission and provide their high school transcript or General Education Development (GED) certificate, assessment test scores and proof of Texas residency for the past 12 months for in-state tuition rates. Some programs, such as Law Enforcement, Nursing, Allied Health and others, may have specialized admission requirements, so check departmental program pages for that information. 

    How do I get started?

     Getting started is easy. Go online to www.applytexas.org to begin your Del Mar College application for admission. 

    After I apply online what else do I need to do?

    Complete your placement testing and submit your official high school transcript and any college transcripts from institutions other than DMC.

    Is there anyone who can explain the admission process to me? 

    Yes. We want to ensure your admission process is as seamless as possible. Staff are available to assist you at the DMC Student Enrollment Centers on the East and West Campuses.
