AdMISSIONS-REgISTRATION

Admissions

North Lake College is a two-year, Texas public college that has an open door admission policy and offers freshman and sophomore level courses (core curriculum) that can be transferred to a university or other college to satisfy many, if not all, lower-level requirements for a bachelor’s degree.

Admission Requirements

The first step in admission is the completion of the Application for Admission Form either online or on campus. The following documents are required:

• High school transcript or GED diploma or certificate. (Students over 18 years of age, without a high school diploma or GED may apply)

• Official transcripts of colleges and universities attended.

• To apply online go to www1.dcccd.edu/stuapp/

Conditional Admission

Students who are admitted conditionally due to missing offical transcripts may encounter difficulties during the admission and academic advising process. It is essential that transfer students submit transcripts from all colleges previously attended and have this information available at the time of admission to the college.

Residency

The amount of tuition you are charged is based upon your residency classification. It is the responsibility of the Admissions Office to determine your residency classification based on the information you have submitted. Your residency classification will be established in accordance with the Rules and Regulations of the Coordinating Board of the Texas College and University System and the policies of the Dallas County Community College District Board of Trustees.

The Admissions/Student Records Office reserves the right to request additional information in order to comply with State of Texas residency requirements prior to enrollment. All resident documents must be submitted by the 12th class day.

texas Residency

In compliance with requirements from the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board to establish Texas residency, all applicants to state supported schools MUST supply documentation which proves residency in Texas for at least twelve (12) months prior to registration and if applicable, the establishment of a domicile in Texas. This information is necessary even though you may have never lived outside the state of Texas or may have lived in Texas for many years. All claims of in-state residence must be documented in writing. Verbal/self-reported information is NOT acceptable according to the State of Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board.

Regardless of the amount of time spent in Texas, students from out-of-state cannot use their time as full-time students to count toward the twelve-month residency requirement. Specific information concerning State of Texas residency requirements can be found at www.thecb.state.tx.us/reports/pdf/

OI83.pdf.

Listed below are items that may assist the Admissions Office in determining your residency status as defined in the Texas Education Code Chapter 54 Subchapter B.

Documentation which can support the Establishment of Domicile and Demonstrate the Maintainence of a Residence in Texas:

• Employment in Texas for 12 consecutive months prior to enrollment

• Title to real property in Texas for 12 months

• Ownership of business in Texas for 12 months

• State or local license to conduct business in Texas dated 12 months prior to enrollment

Establishment of a Residence:

A person who:

• Graduated from a public or accredited private high school or received the equivalent of a high school diploma in Texas.

• Resided in Texas the 36 months immediately preceding the date of graduation, or receipt of the diploma equivalent, and

• Resided in Texas the 12 months prior to the census date of the academic semester in which the person enrolls.

A person who:

• Established a domicile in Texas for 12 months prior to enrollment.

• Maintained a residence in Texas for 12 consecutive months preceding enrollment.

A dependent whose parent:

• Established a domicile in Texas for 12 months prior to enrollment.

• Maintained a residence in Texas for 12 consecutive months preceding enrollment

In-district Residency

Once your in-state residency status is established, your classification as in-district (Dallas County resident) or out-of-district is based on where you actually reside or on your ownership of property subject to the Community College Ad Valorem Tax.

Listed below are examples of items that may assist the Admissions Office in determining your residency status. The Admissions Office reserves the right

to ask for additional residency documentation.

• A copy of your permanent Texas Driver’s License or Texas ID card.

• Current lease agreement in your name at the correct Dallas County* address. Current Texas Voter Registration Card listing your correct Dallas County* address.

• Current automobile registration showing your correct Dallas* address.

• Copy of a current deed and/or property tax statement showing ownership of Dallas County* property.

• Business or official correspondence at your correct Dallas County* address (i.e., utility bills, billing statements from department stores or credit agencies, etc.).

*Be aware that Dallas County limits and Dallas city limits ARE NOT the same. It is entirely possible to live outside Dallas County yet still have a Dallas city address.

Foreign nationals

If you are a Foreign National who has been granted Permanent Resident status that is not temporary, you should follow the steps to establish state residency. Your resident card must be presented with your application. Tuition is determined on an individual basis after complete documentation is submitted and reviewed by the Admissions Office.

Course drop Requirements For Students-6 drop

Section 51.907 of the Texas Education Code, enacted by the State of Texas, Fall 2007, applies to students who enroll in a public institution of higher education as a first time freshman in Fall 2007 or later.

The college may not permit a student to drop more than six courses, including those taken at another Texas public institution of higher education. All courses dropped after the Official Day of Record are included in the six- course limit unless

1. the student withdraws from all courses or

2. the drop is authorized by an appropriate college official as an approved Drop Exception.

Drop Exceptions can be approved if the student documents that the drop was required for one of the following reasons and that for that reason the student could not satisfactorily complete the course:

1. The student, a member of the student’s family, or a person of equally important relationship to the student experiences a serious illness or other debilitating condition.

2. The student becomes responsible for the care of a sick, injured, or needy person.

3. There is a death in the student’s family or of a non-family member of equally important relationship.

4. The student or a member of the student’s family, or a person of equally important relationship to the student, is called to active duty service as a member of the Texas National Guard or the armed forces of the United States.

5. There is a change in the student’s work schedule that is beyond the student’s control.

6. The College determines that there is other good cause for the student to drop the course.

Enrollment and drop activities of students affected by this legislation will be monitored. Those who drop six or more courses without an approved Drop Exception will incur registration and drop restrictions during all subsequent semesters, and may incur other enrollment limitations or requirements.

Students liable under this legislation who plan to attend another Texas public college or university should determine that institution’s policies and penalties for dropping courses and for approving Drop Exceptions.

This policy does not apply to developmental education or ESOL courses attempted.

The Texas Success Initiative (TSI) Program is required by state law to ensure students enrolled in Texas public colleges possess the academic skills needed to perform effectively in college-level coursework. TSI includes testing components designed to identify and provide information about your reading, writing and math skills.

After you are admitted, but prior to registration, you must either present scores from an assessment test associated with the TSI Program or be eligible for an exemption or waiver from this requirement. Course prerequisites must still be met by students who are TSI-exempt or waived. State approved testing instruments are TASP, QTASP, THEA, QTHEA, Asset, Compass or Accuplacer. You are expected to consult with the college Advising Center in order to meet the TSI requirements. It is your responsibility to be aware of all TSI regulations. For more information, visit www.thecb.state.tx.us/. The rules and regulations are posted on the Dallas County Community College District’s Web site, www.dcccd.edu.

Accuplacer The DCCCD uses the Accuplacer assessment test, an online, computerized test that assesses skills in reading, math, and writing. You must be admitted through the Admissions Office and obtain a referral form from an Advisor to take this test. Testing referrals for initial tests may be obtained from any department’s academic advisor prior to testing.

All sections of the test are multiple choice except writing, which includes both multiple-choice and short essay. Students are given one hour to complete the writing sample. The rest of the test is not timed. Most students can complete all sections within 4 to 5 hours. There is no charge for the first sitting of Accuplacer. Students who have a documented disability may be eligible for special testing accommodations. Contact the ADA/ACCESS Office in Student Support Services (A430) at (972) 273-3165 to determine eligibility.

Retesting Students may test only once a semester with DCCCD. Students who wish to retest must obtain a retesting referral from an academic advisor and pay $10.00 per section prior to retesting.

Practice test The practice test for the Texas Higher Education Act (THEA) is available online. This is the full-length practice test from the Official TASP/THEA Test Study Guide. It includes test directions, the practice test, an answer key, and a skill evaluation chart so students can compare their results to the THEA standards. The practice test can be found on the THEA Web site at www. thea.nesinc.com. This practice test could be used to review for any of the state approved testing instruments.
