Nearly 15,000 students call the Delaware Technical & Community College (DTCC) system their home. DTCC opened its Owens campus in 1967 and has since grown to include a total of four campuses. The DTCC system has campuses in Sussex, Dover, Stanton, and Wilmington, Del. DTCC campuses confer associate degrees and make certificate and job training programs available to Delawareans. The Terry campus provides these programs to about 3,300 Delaware residents annually.
DTCC offers more than 100 associate programs in subjects like engineering and public service. DTCC-Terry graduates are not only prepared for their careers, but have a high chance of realizing their careers; the DTCC system boasts that 90% of its graduates get placed in the career path of their choice. DTCC also offers distance courses for those students whose schedules demand flexibility. DTCC provides students with three types of distance courses, namely web-enhanced, hybrid, and fully online courses. Distance students enjoy flexibility as some or all of their course work can be completed from the comfort of their homes. Students engage in typical activities, such as turning in assignments, through DTCC’s learning management system.
DTTC-Terry gained Middle States Commission of Higher Education accreditation in 1972. In 2008, its accreditation qualifications were reviewed and it was granted accreditation for another 10 years.
New and transfer students who apply to DTCC-Terry must submit an application and non-refundable application fee. New students should supply DTCC-Terry with proof of high school graduation, whether it be an official transcript or GED certificate. They must also complete and submit their scores for the Accuplacer, ACT, or SAT. In addition to all of the above, with the exception of the high school transcript, transfer students should submit their official college transcript. They do not have to submit Accuplacer, ACT, or SAT scores if they provide proof that they were previously enrolled in a college or university.
