Del Mar College
Del Mar College has an “open door” admission policy. In-coming students need to complete an application for admission and provide their high school transcript or General Education Development (GED) certificate, assessment test scores and proof of Texas residency for the past 12 months for in-state tuition rates. Some programs, such as Law Enforcement, Nursing, Allied Health and others, may have specialized admission requirements, so check departmental program pages for that information.
