Tuition & Fees
  1. A student registered for 12 credit hours per semester or the equivalent is considered "full-time" for purposes of tuition payments. This policy also applies to students who take courses on more than one campus.
  2. Tuition for non-credit courses will be charged on a per-course basis, as stated in the Corporate and Community Programs Division brochure or other literature describing the course.
  3. Student accounts may be paid by MasterCard, VISA, Discover, debit card, cash or check at any of the Delaware Technical Community College campuses.

Additional tuition and fee information may be found on the College Web site at www.dtcc.edu/academics/college-catalog/financial-information.

Residents of the State of Delaware who are 60 years old or older may enroll at Delaware Tech tuition free, in any catalog course, technical or related studies, day or evening. Delaware Tech/University of Delaware AA Program credit courses are also included. Special interest courses are excluded. Persons eligible for this privilege are not required to pay application, course registration, or other related fees. They shall pay the cost of all books, supplies, laboratory/ material fees, and shop fees. The Application and Student Services fee is waived.

Installment Payment Plan

Fall and Spring Semesters:
Students may use the College's Installment Payment Plan. The amount of the first payment is equal to one-third of the total tuition and course fees. The second installment payment is equal to one-half of the remaining account balance, and it is due four (4) weeks from the beginning of the semester. The third and final installment payment is due eight (8) weeks from the beginning of the semester, and it is equal to the remaining account balance.

Summer Semester:

Students may use the College's Summer Installment Payment Plan. The first installment payment is due at the time of registration. The amount of this payment is equal to one-third of the total tuition and course fees. The second installment payment is equal to one-half of the remaining account balance, and it is due three (3) weeks from the beginning of the semester. The third and final installment payment is due six (6) weeks from the beginning of the semester, and it is equal to the remaining account balance.

Important: Final payment must be made prior to the first day of registration for the following semester. A data hold will be placed on any student account that has a past due balance, and delinquent accounts are referred to a third party collections agency.

The Hope Scholarship/Lifetime Learning Education Tax Credits

The Hope Scholarship/Lifetime Learning Education Tax Credits are options to help offset educational costs. Technically, the HOPE "Scholarship" is not a scholarship. It is a tax credit available to eligible students. Delaware Tech does not determine if students are eligible for this tax credit. A tax advisor should be consulted for more details. For complete details concerning eligibility, consult your tax advisor and/or visit the IRS Web site at www.irs.gov.

Tuition/Fee Adjustment Policy Course Drop or Semester Withdrawal

To receive an adjustment for a course drop, the student must first officially drop the course. See Course Drop procedure or Registrar for details on officially dropping a course. To receive an adjustment for a semester withdrawal, the student must first officially withdraw from all courses. Students will not be charged any tuition or refundable fees (lab, technology support and telecourse) for courses dropped during the first week of the session. Students will be responsible for 50% of the assessed tuition and refundable fees for courses dropped during the second week of the session. After the second week, any courses dropped are not refundable. The following fees are non-refundable: application, registration, late registration, student services, credit by examination, and evaluation of work experience. The official drop/add/withdrawal period for each session is listed on the academic calendar.
