Students are enrolled during the beginning of school terms in the Fall, Winter, Spring, or Summer.  Applications can be made at any time.  However, prospective High School graduates should submit their credentials as early as possible during their senior year.  The application accompanied by a check or money order in the amount of $50.00 made payable to Dean Institute of Technology should be returned to the Director of Admissions.



Admissions Procedures
• A prospective student seeking admission to Dean Institute of Technology must be a high school graduate or hold a General Education Development (GED) Diploma.
• High school seniors who have not yet graduated should submit a partial transcript, which indicates their expected graduation date. Upon graduation an official transcript is required.
• Each prospective student will receive an admissions interview at the school.

Dean Institute of Technology admits, trains, and refers students without regard to race, religion, age, national origin, sex, or handicap. Dean Institute of Technology does not discriminate against the “legally protected individual.”


Enrollment Procedures
1. Obtain the application form for enrollment from the Admissions Department at Dean Institute of Technology.  One will be supplied at the end of your tour of the school.

2. Complete and sign the application form (a parent must also sign the application if applicable). An application fee of fifty dollars ($50) must accompany the application. The fee can be paid in any of the following manners:

• Personal or certified check
• Money order
• Cash
• MasterCard, Visa, Discover or American Express

3. Sign an Enrollment Agreement. This represents a contractual agreement between the student and the school.

4. Request that an official high school transcript be sent directly to the Admissions Department.  Applicants who have taken the GED Exam must submit official evidence of satisfactory performance.

5. Data obtained is evaluated by the Admissions Department and determination is made if the applicant will benefit from our training. If it is determined that the applicant could benefit, then he/she is accepted; otherwise, he/she is not accepted. The application fee is fully refundable if the applicant is denied acceptance.

6. Those accepted will receive a formal letter of acceptance.


Time of Entrance
In order to allow enough time for receiving transcripts, interviewing, testing, and financial aid processing, the prospective student should apply as early as possible. By applying well in advance of the starting courses, the prospective student has a greater chance of securing enrollment.

Advanced Standing
Provisions are made in the curriculum so that students with prior training in a subject may enter classes in that subject at a higher level of instruction. Advanced Standing will be considered for students who have had special high school or college preparation, or have advanced proficiency in a specific skill area. Advanced placement tests must be taken and the student is responsible for all fees. Students who receive Advanced Standing must still fulfill the maximum program credit requirement.
Advanced standing credits are recorded as hours earned toward a program, but the grade points are not averaged into the student’s Q.P.A. Also, advanced standing credits are not factored into the calculation for determination of the minimum requirements for Satisfactory Academic Progress.
All requests for advanced standing must be made to the Director of Enrollment Services no later than thirty (30) days prior to the date the student begins classes.

Family Educational Rights & Privacy Act
Pursuant to this Act of 1974, a student has the right to inspect his/her educational records, maintained by the school. A student who desires to review his/her student file must make a written request to the President of Dean Institute of Technology.
