First time students including graduating seniors
DVC highly recommends new entering students complete Online Orientation, English and
math assessment testing, and register for Couns-095 Educational Planning. These are
completed late in the term prior to when you intend to start, so it is important to
submit your application for the prior term. For example, if you intend to start classes
in fall, you should apply for summer to that you may assess and register for a summer
Couns-095 class in preparation for selecting your fall schedule. Please refer to
the New Students page for more information.
When selecting your schedule, make sure to note any course prerequisites. They are courses you must pass prior to registering the desired course. You should
submit your prerequisite form and proof to Admissions at least 3 business days prior
to your registration date to avoid registration delays.
Every student that applies is issued a permanent student ID# and is granted a login
to our InSite portal, which houses both the WebAdvisor registration system and your
college issued email address. This InSite email address will be the primary method
of contact and notifications from the college, so you will want to login as soon as
you are granted access.
Returning and transfer students
If you are a returning student to DVC please refer to the Returning Students page for more information. If you are a transfer student to DVC please refer to

If you attended a college outside our district, you will want to submit official transcripts
for each institution for your permanent record. If you need to satisfy prerequisites,
submit the prerequisite form with proof attached to the Admissions and Records Office
at least 3 business days prior to your registration date to avoid registration delays.
Please attach proof to the prerequisite form regardless of whether you already submitted
