• Welcome, Parents and Families!

    Del Mar College is a smart choice for you and members of your family. Nationally recognized educational opportunities focused on local community needs and opportunities give DMC a unique mission. Choosing DMC will provide financial and social benefits as you complete the education you need for the future you want.

    • Quality— the caliber of education prepares students to compete in the real world. More high school graduates from the Coastal Bend region select Del Mar College than any other college or university in the state. (Data source, The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board.)
    • Cost—DMC students benefit from the investment the College district residents make through local property taxes each year. As a result, a full course load at DMC costs about a third as much as the same courses at a public state university.
    • Competitive success—our alumni will tell you Del Mar College prepared them well for academic transfer or for immediate employment. DMC students transferring to the regional state universities outperform students transferring from other community colleges. (Data source—Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board.)
