  • Transfer Students Only

    If you have completed course work at another college or university and wish to have that credit evaluated for use on a degree plan at Del Mar College you must provide all official college and/or university transcripts. After all transcripts have been received by the Student Enrollment Center and you complete and submit a Transfer Evaluation Request Form (TERF) we can begin the evaluation process.

      New Student Orientation is mandatory for first-time in college students. Your registration hold will not be removed until you attend your orientation session.

      Complete first-time in college students will meet with their program advisor and register for classes at New Student Orientation. If you have less than 24 credit hours, you must speak with an advisor in the department of your major. If you are a Liberal Arts major, or undecided about your major, contact the Student Enrollment Center at (361) 698-1290.

  • Student ID, Parking & Books

    • Student ID

      Student identification cards (IDs) are issued free of charge to you when you first register; however, a charge will be made for replacements. Also, IDs must be validated each subsequent registration period (semester).

      Cards are good for admission to College functions, for obtaining library materials, and for using recreational facilities. You should carry it with you at all times and present it upon request.

      You can get your ID card at the White Library (East Campus) or the Barth Learning Center (West Campus) by showing proof of registration. Identification cards are made during all library hours except the first and last 30 minutes of operation.

    • Parking Permit

      To park your car on campus, you need a Vehicle Identification Permit (VIP). To get a VIP, fill out a parking registration card and submit it to Campus Security. They, in turn, will issue you a VIP.  Campus Security is located at the Maintenance Building at Naples Street and Kosar Street on the East Campus.
