Thank you for your interest in our program!
- Any classes transferred in must be from an accredited college or university acceptable to Tacoma Community College (e.g., a school accredited by one of the regional accreditation organizations). See Common Course Equivalencies
- Any higher level equivalent course may be accepted in place of the listed prerequisites. Please contact the Program Chair for approval of course substitutions.
- If transferring prerequisites from another accredited educational institution, TCC will require that official transcripts from other colleges must be submitted to the Records & Registration Office, Bldg. 7, upon request.
Admission policies are subject to change. Applications will be accepted under the terms in place at the time an application is received. It is the responsibility of the applicant to keep up to date on any changes that may affect their qualifications for acceptance and ensure their online application was complete in all respects.
Admission to the DMS program is a competitive process. Generally, there are more applicants to the program than available positions. Therefore, if a student takes all the prerequisite classes and meets the other requirements for a completed application, it does not guarantee admission to the program. Applicants must be officially accepted by the program prior to enrolling in DMS program courses. Notifications regarding status will be emailed to each applicant by the end of August.
