New students may begin the DMC program twice each year starting in January and August. For student convenience, the program operates on a rolling admissions basis and qualified applicants may be accepted throughout the year as soon as they complete the application process.

All applicants will be notified of the admission committee’s decision whether accepted or rejected; however, the timing can vary depending on when the complete application is received. Applicants are strongly encouraged to apply before the program’s application deadline. 


Once accepted to the program, a student may have an obstacle arise that prevents them from starting courses in their intended term. For these rare situations, students may choose to defer to a later term by completing the Deferment Form. Students who choose to defer may do so for one term from their intended start date. If a student wishes to defer their enrollment more than one term, the student must contact the Enrollment Specialist at 304-293-6278 or for further instruction and approval. 

Application Submission Deadlines

Applying before the deadline gives applicants the optimal amount of time to explore and secure financial aid, participate in orientation activities, order books and plan their course of study. However, applications must be completed by the following deadlines to receive full consideration for admission: 
Admission Term Application Deadline
Spring (January)     
Fall (August) 
December 17
August 1

Applications will be processed after the deadline until an incoming class is full. Once all available seats have been filled, qualified applicants will be deferred to the next incoming term. The program may also implement a waitlist for an incoming session.
