Delgado Announces New Scholarships Plus Streamlined Tuition, Fees

Dcc 1 1NEW ORLEANS – Delgado Community College announced new scholarship opportunities.

Currently enrolled Delgado students who are continuing their studies in the fall can earn a $600 “Think 30 Award.” They must register for and maintain at least 15 credit hours during the fall semester. The name of the award is based on the fact that students who enroll for 30 credit hours each year are more likely to graduate faster and at less cost.

Returning students—those who have been away from Delgado for one year or longer—are eligible to receive $600 towards tuition and fees through the “Welcome Back” program. They must register for and maintain at least 15 credit hours in the fall.

For years, students who are not Louisiana residents have been assessed a non-resident fee when enrolling at Delgado. That fee will not be charged to anyone enrolling for classes at Delgado as of the fall 2020 semester. 

Non-resident students will be charged about half what they were charged previously, according to the college’s most recent tuition and fee schedule. For example, an in-state resident signing up for a full load of classes—12 credit hours or more—would pay $2,040 in tuition and fees under the current schedule. An out-of-state resident would pay $4,184. Starting in the fall 2020 semester, both will pay the same, smaller amount.

Also, Delgado has eliminated the $40 application fee charged to non-residents enrolling in online classes. There will be no application fee to enroll for any classes offered by the college as of fall 2020.
