Getting excited for registration time

Rallies kick off signup period for summer, fall classes

If you are thinking about attending Del Mar in the summer or fall of 2018, class registration is under way.

Registration for summer and fall courses began April 2. School officials are urging students to register for classes as soon as possible to ensure they get their desired classes and times. Tuition for the first summer session will be due by 6 p.m. May 22.

“If you register early you will be able to choose your own schedule,” Outreach Aid Maricela Huerta said. “If you wait until late, you might not have any other choice but to choose whatever left is available.”

Students who have over 24 credit hours can easily register themselves through WebDMC, otherwise students must meet with an advisor first before being cleared for online registration. Students can register at any of Del Mar College’s campuses but are urged to register at the campus in which their major and adviser are located. Students must schedule an appointment before meeting with their designated adviser.

The East Campus Student Enrollment Center is doing all they can to ensure students are registered for their classes on time. From April 2-5, the Student Enrollment Center held Registration Rallies for students to meet with financial aid and the advising staff. Students were able to receive assistance with the registration process. The events included fun activities, snacks and door prizes. Students who provided proof of registration received a free Del Mar T-shirt.

“I’m registering for my classes early so I don’t have to wait in line for the second summer session,” said culinary arts major Melissa Villegas-Lopez, who was at the rally. “I also want to jump ahead in my classes, so I can knock out whatever I need for my degree.”

If students do decide to register at the last minute, it’s important to be mindful of all the deadlines.

“Deadlines for early on-campus and online registration for the fall semester is available until 6:30 p.m. July 11,” liberal arts adviser Debbie Ann Salazar said.

For any questions about registration or admission, contact the Student Enrollment Center at 361-698-1290.
