Advisory Statement

Delaware Technical Community College is an open admissions institution with degree, diploma, and certificate programs that require completion of courses, internships, practicums, clinical, and field work assignments and other experiential learning requirements. Approval of a student's placement in settings, such as health care facilities, schools and human services agencies, which provide these experiences is the prerogative of the organization providing the setting and not the College.

Although requirements vary by organization and are constantly evolving, common criteria include:

  • the lack of a criminal history including a review of the adult abuse and child protection registries;
  • a satisfactory health exam including proof of immunizations and drug screenings;
  • a valid Social Security number and proof of legal residency;
  • and other applicable licensing/credentialing requirements.

Legal residency is required to work. Students should be aware that these requirements could limit or prevent their ability to complete an academic program or to find employment in the field. Students are responsible for all arrangements and costs associated with these requirements. It is the student's responsibility to inquire about conditions and acceptance into courses and programs that may have special requirements. A student may seek the assistance of an Academic Counselor, Program Advisor or academic program Department Chairperson in identifying conditions of acceptance and enrollment in all programs and courses at Delaware Technical Community College.

Conditions of employment are established by potential employers and not by Delaware Technical Community College and such conditions of employment may include or exceed any or all of the above requirements.
