Applicants must meet the admission requirements of the College to be eligible for enrollment into the program. Students are expected to be proficient in basic English, writing, reading and mathematics. Appropriate developmental courses are available for those who need to improve proficiency in these areas.
In addition to the general admission requirements for the College, entry into the program requires:
- completion of one (1) unit of high school algebra
- completion of one (1) unit of high school geometry or its equivalent
Helpful and encouraged but not required:
- one unit (1) of biology
Students whose records or test scores indicate a need for prerequisite courses will be required to complete the courses or until such deficiencies are met. A deficiency in the prerequisite courses may lead to a three-year program of study.
The program serves residents throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia and other states. Students may complete preliminary general education studies at another Virginia Community Colleges and transfer to DSLCC to complete the forestry courses needed for the Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) Degree. Due to course sequencing, two years at DSLCC will be necessary to complete the forestry courses. Transfer into the DSLCC Forest Management Technology program necessitates close coordination of required courses or their equivalent with the DSLCC academic/forestry advisors. To transfer from another College into the DSLCC Forest Management Technology program, application should be submitted to DSLCC one year in advance of the anticipated start date. Students who wish to transfer should contact their transfer counselor at the local College and the DSLCC Student Services Department.
