Students have several paths to beginning their education at DSU.

All students must meet the general admissions requirements

Open-Entry Vocational Admission

Those who want to enroll in just a course or two may wish to begin as “Open Enrollment” students.  There is no application fee, and students simply demonstrate that they meet the minimum entrance requirements.  Open enrollment students should select “open enrollment” on the undergraduate application prior to their first class.


Degree Seeking Students

Degree seeking students must demonstrate that they meet the entrance requirements for their desired program of study.  Please review the requirements and application process for each program carefully.  Degree seeking students should complete the appropriate application (undergraduate or graduate) and submit the required supporting materials.  They will receive a notification of the enrollment decision.  Because of DSU’s commitment to access, students who meet the entrance requirements are typically admitted into the program of their choice.
