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 the Transfer to DVC page for more information.  

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 a transcript.

High School Students
Students who are concurrently enrolled in high school should review the high school information page.
