3. Get into classes.

We want to help you choose the right classes for your career choice.

  • If you have not taken college English or math, you must take a placement assessment ($15 fee) or submit qualifying ACT scores (School Code: 1577). For exemption details or to schedule a testing appointment, visit the Delgado Placement Assessment website.
  • If you do not need a placement assessment, check with the Office of Advising before visiting campus. Advisors may require an appointment.
    • You must provide a placement assessment score, college transcript, or ACT score with English and math scores before being advised.
    • If you are a transfer student, you must meet with an advisor based on your career choice, and you must bring unofficial transcripts to all advising sessions for proper placement and pre-requisite overrides.
  • Register for classes online through LoLA after being advised.

4. Secure your classes.

Schedules must be secured and/or paid to prevent being deleted. To ensure your classes are secure, you may:

  • Pay in person (cash, check or money order) by 3 p.m. on the payment deadline date or online through LoLA. You must pay online using a credit card or checking account.
  • Enroll in the payment plan online through LoLA. You must pay using a credit card or checking account
