Students will be able to take some classes at DMACC regardless of the ACT scores. Admission at DMACC is based upon an open-door policy. The college accepts any high school graduate (or equivalent) who seeks general admission. Enrollment in programs and selected courses; however, may depend upon basic skill levels and/or available space. With the 'rolling admissions process,' acceptance of an applicant is granted as soon as all admissions procedures and entry requirements have been completed. If a program is at capacity enrollment, eligible applicants will be placed on standby status until an enrollment opportunity exists. 

Each program establishes the minimum entrance requirements for applicants. Proficiency in reading, writing and/or mathematics may be required which may involve a minimum ACT or Accuplacer/ALEKS Math score in order to get accepted into a specific program.
