Article by: Melinda Eddleman

Even though Harvey has left the Coastal Bend, many Del Mar College fall registrants are dealing with the aftermath. The College is making every effort to help them reach their goals this fall semester with Student Services operating tomorrow and Saturday, Sept. 1-2, to assist students before the first day of classes on Tuesday, Sept. 5.

In observance of the Labor Day holiday, the College will be closed Monday, Sept. 4.

The College’s Student Services offices will assist students with registration, financial aid, payments, setting up installment plans and other services needed to start classes this next week.

During the next two days, registration for 14- and 15-week classes, 8-week classes and other alternatives will be held in the East Campus Harvin Student Center (Baldwin and Ayers) and West Campus Coleman Center (Old Brownsville and Airport Roads) tomorrow from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m.

Online registration is open today for those sessions and runs through Saturday. 

The Del Mar College Bookstore located in the Harvin Student Center will be open the same hours tomorrow and Saturday as DMC Student Services.

Learn more about registration at Questions also can be directed to the College’s Student Enrollment Center at 361-698-1290 (East), 361-698-1741 (West) or

Students have until Friday, Sept. 8, to pay tuition and fees through 1 p.m. if paying in-person and 5:59 p.m. if paying online. The College is accepting installment plans through next Friday, too.

Schedule changes also will be accepted with the College waiving the normal change fee. Individuals who registered and paid for their courses but cannot attend classes this fall for whatever reason will receive a 100% refund.

The College has set up an “After Hurricane Harvey” FAQ page that addresses the most frequently asked questions regarding the start of the fall semester, deadlines and other pertinent information. Go to
