Ready to get ahead? Awesome.
When you take dual enrollment classes you get college credits while you're in high school. You can't go wrong!
Follow these steps to begin taking classes at Delta College.
All students should meet with their high school counselor (or designated staff) to discuss dual enrollment opportunities.
Create Your Admissions Account/Complete an Application. All new dual enrollment students will need to create an account and complete a Delta admissions application.
When creating your account be sure to do the following:
- Use a personal email address where you will have future access.
- Select the correct student type:
- Select “I will be attending Delta College while still in High School. (Dual Enroll/Middle College)”
Your Delta Portal gives you access to your Delta email and Student Self Service where you can register for classes, pay your bill if your high school does not cover the full cost and much more! The day after you receive your acceptance email with your student ID# you will need to create your Delta portal account. This account is different than your application account and should be setup prior to completing your next steps.
- Activate your Delta Portal: You will need your Delta Student ID # from your acceptance email and last four digits of your Social Security Number.
Delta requires students to meet placement levels for most courses. Most dual enrollment students take Accuplacer for course placement:
The ACCUPLACER assessment identifies current skill levels in Math, Reading and Writing.
- To request an appointment for remote ACCUPLACER assessment, please fill out the ACCUPLACER Appointment Request Form through the Delta College Testing Center.
If you have SAT (PSAT scores do not qualify) scores you may not need to take Accuplacer. SAT test scores should be submitted to the Admissions Office (if taken within the past three years and meet the minimum scores of a 480 in Evidence Based Reading & Writing (EBRW) and 500 in Math)
- Request through College Board - Delta’s SAT school code: 1816 or,
- Email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- If your SAT scores are listed on your high school transcript you do not need to resend.
Some courses have prerequisites that may require your high school transcripts in order to determine eligibility to take the class. If necessary, High school transcripts should be submitted to the Admissions. Submit in one of the following ways:
- Request through Parchment or contact your high school or,
- Email your transcripts to email@example.com.

Plan your schedule
We know you are busy and have certain classes that you need. Delta offers flexible course options, including online, blended, day, afternoon and evening classes. We also have satellite campuses in Bay City, Midland and Saginaw. Plan ahead by using our class search so you can get the classes you need, when you need them.
If you aren't sure where you're going to go to college when you graduate, take generic-type college classes in high school so your credits will transfer. Your high school counselor and the Academic Advising staff at Delta will help!
900+ high school students were dual enrolled last year.
Dual enrollment classes are usually paid for by your high school.
