The goal is to get them to the point where they can meet with a counselor by April for summer or fall semester registration."

The open houses are timely, as the deadline to apply for a scholarship from the DCC Educational Foundation for the 2015-16 academic year is March 31. The College has more than 100 scholarships for first time students. In addition, the Foundation will offer a $100 voucher for tuition or to the DCC Bookstore to each prospective student completing the admission process, scholarship application and FAFSA application (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) at the open house and enrolling in classes. Pulliam noted that individuals interested in applying for Financial Aid should bring their 2014 tax information with them.
