Application and Admissions Process
The goal of the DCCL admission process is to bring together a diverse and highly-qualified cohort of learners. The admission process is designed to select applicants who demonstrate the greatest potential for both successful graduate work and, upon program completion, substantive contribution to leadership of community colleges.
An applicant's admissions packet will be considered holistically along with the overall composition of the admissions packets of the cohort group, with a goal of creating balance and diversity within the group. Whenever possible the composition of the cohort will represent geographically and demographically diverse institutions and individuals so that student input in the courses will reflect a variety of experiences.
There is still space in the 2013 cohort!
The admissions committee will review applications as they are received. Orientation begins Friday, May 17, 2013.
