University description (as per official university website)
Del Mar College uses an applicant's Social Security number as a permanent reference number. An applicant without a Social Security number may either obtain one, or the Office of the Registrar will assign a unique matriculation number upon request.
Social Security Numbers (SSN) are highly confidential and legally protected data. As an alternate to the SSN, Del Mar College has created a unique ID number (Campus Wide ID or CWID) for each member of the campus community. This means SSNs will no longer appear on most online and written communications.
All students are eligible to take advantage of web registration as long as ALL admission requirements are met. FIVE WORKING DAYS are required to prepare completed admission files for web registration.
In order to register, you must have a complete admission file. Your admission file consists of the following documents required by various federal and state agencies and Del Mar College:
* Complete the Application for Admission.
* Provide official high school transcript or GED test scores.
* Meet assessment requirements.*
* Show proof of Texas residency.
* You must see an advisor before registering for classes.
Students who have previously taken the TASP Test or a TASP alternative test and have enrolled in a Texas public college prior to Fall 2003 must meet the assessment levels shown in the College catalog. They are not required to retest if they have previously met TASP requirements or have successfully completed their developmental course work.
Del Mar College requires placement testing of all students with the following exceptions:
* Students who have already taken the TASP or TASP alternative.
* Students who have already graduated with an associate's degree or a baccalaureate degree from an accredited institution of higher education.
* Students who are transferring from an out-of-state or private institution with transcripts showing credit in the equivalent of English 1301 and a college-credit mathematics class.
* Students with minimum ACT scores of 19 in both the English and mathematics tests and a composite score of 23.
