You will complete a summer application as a first-time college student. This will allow you to take our COUNS 095 (or COUNS 096 for athletes) class so that you can receive academic advising in preparation for fall semester (details are outlined in step four).
After submitting your application via CCCApply, a verification email will be sent to the email account you enter on your application. Follow the instructions in that email so that your application can be processed. If you do not receive the verification email, check your spam/junk folder
Within 24 business hours, you will be emailed your new DVC student ID number, registration date, important student account information. This information will be sent to the email address you provided on your application.
Students should also begin the financial aid process along with their DVC application, since this process can take some time to complete.
If you are a U.S. citizen or eligible non-citizen, you should complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to see if you qualify for aid such as grants, work-study, or loans.
If you are an undocumented student, who qualifies for AB-540 status, you should complete the California Dream Act Application to see if you are eligible for grants.
For more information about the financial aid process, tune into Financial Aid TV.
Once you have completed the online orientation, it is time to get your English or English as a Second Language (ESL), and math placements. Use our online placement process to determine the correct courses for you. Visit www.dvc.edu/assessment and select the appropriate tab depending on when and where you graduated from high school.
As a new student, you will initially receive academic advising by taking a COUNS 095 (COUNS 096 for athletes) class which is taught by an academic counselor. By the end of this class, you will have your first 2-semesters of courses planned. It is highly advisable that you meet with a counselor during fall semester (and every semester after) to complete your educational plan.
COUNS 095/096 is taught online via Canvas (our Learning Management System). You will access Canvas via your InSite portal account by selecting the Canvas tile.
