You've decided that Delta is the right place for you after all? Whatever the reason, we couldn't agree more and we’re excited that you’ve decided to transfer here.
Create an account (use personal email) and submit a new application based on your student type. This is important so you receive the correct communications from the college on the enrollment process.
Choosing the correct student type:
- If you are currently attending another college or university and just want to take courses at Delta as a guest, please follow the guest student checklist.
- Select “New Student” if you were a previous dual enrolled student who is/or will be graduating.
- Select “Returning Student” if you attended Delta previously.
- Select “Transfer Student” if you attended another institution previously (but never attended Delta).
Step #2: Account Activation and Multifactor Authentication (MFA)
About four hours after receiving your acceptance email, you'll receive an email from email@example.com with instructions on setting up your Delta account.
This account will give you access to your Delta email, Student Self-Service and much more. The activation process is most easily done on a device other than your cell phone.

Step #3: Request Transcripts
If you are currently in high school or graduated within the last 10 years, send your high school transcripts. You can submit in one of the following ways:
- Email your high school transcripts to firstname.lastname@example.org or
Request through Parchment or contact your high school.
If you attended another college or university, have your official transcripts sent from every institution you attended. You can submit in one of the following ways:
- Email your college transcripts to email@example.com or
- Mail your college transcripts to: 1961 Delta Road, University Center, MI 48710 Attn:
Step #4: Determine Course Placement
Delta requires students to meet placement levels for most courses. Placement can be met in multiple ways:
- If you successfully completed college level English and math classes at Delta or transferrable courses from another college or university (official transcripts must be evaluated and show credit).
- If you do not have previous credit for college level English and math classes, but you have an SAT score of Reading/Writing 480 and Math 500, then send your SAT student score report to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- If you do not meet the above requirements, schedule Accuplacer testing.
If you are unsure if you need to test, contact your admissions representative for further discussion.
Step #5: Guided Self-Placement Survey
This quick survey allows you more flexibility to select the math and English courses that best align with your academic pathway, experience and comfort level. You will complete this survey at the end of Accuplacer or if you meet SAT scores you will receive an email to complete.
Step #6: Apply for Financial Aid
Not sure how you are going to pay for classes? Completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the best place to start. It is FREE to complete and is required for most types of aid including: loans, scholarships, federal Pell Grant, Tuition Incentive Program (TIP) and other state programs. Keep in mind that FAFSA can take approximately 4 to 6 weeks to process so start early.
Completion of the FAFSA
- Create your Federal Student Aid ID
- Fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
- Delta’s FAFSA code is 002251.
- You will receive an email to your Delta email from financial aid with further details.
