• Admissions Requirements

    Although Del Mar College has an open door policy, specific programs in the College have selected admission.

The Pharmacy Technology Program application with supporting documentation, a background check, and a preliminary drug screen must be received in Health Science Building 2 (Room #128) on the West Campus by July 15.
