Summer Payment Plans

If you need to pay your tuition in installments, visit your college’s business/cashier’s office to set up a payment plan.

Maymester, Flex Term or Online Classes

It’s important to note that, if you’re taking Maymester or Flex Term classes, the dates listed above might not apply – and you should definitely check with the business/cashier’s office for details. Additionally, if you’re not up for sitting in a classroom all summer, MaymesterFlex Term or online classes might be the way to go so you can still earn a few extra credits between regular semesters. But don’t just take our word for it – browse the full DCCCD summer 2016 schedule to get a full sense of your options.

“Why Can’t I Register for This Class?!”

If you normally attend another college or university and you’re taking classes with us over the summer, we’ll need your transcripts from those other institutions. One of the primary reasons for this is because many courses have prerequisites that must be met before you can register. Your transcripts are the main way we find out if you’ve taken those prerequisites elsewhere before coming to DCCCD.

Transcripts are evaluated by DCCCD Admissions/Registrar’s offices, and you will need to have your transcripts sent to the college you plan to attend. (Still have questions about transcripts? Check out some of our frequently asked questions about transcripts and evaluation.)

Summer 2016 Holidays/Closures

We know how much you love being on campus each and every day, but just so you’re aware, we won’t be there to hang out with you on these dates this summer:

  • Monday, May 30 – DCCCD is closed for Memorial Day.
  • Monday, July 4 – DCCCD is closed for the Fourth of July holiday.
