DCTS Application Deadlines:
Dauphin County Technical School (DCTS) is currently accepting applications for the 2015-16 school year.
Each year, DCTS establishes two separate deadline dates for the receipt of applications, providing students with two opportunities to be considered for admission to the wide variety of programs the School has to offer.
The deadline for “First Round” applications is January 27, 2015. Students will lose 5 points for late submission after this date. The “Second Round” application deadline is March 16, 2015. Students will lose 10 points for late submission after this date. To meet DCTS’s application deadlines, STHS students should submit their completed applications to the Guidance Office well in advance of the referenced deadline dates.
Students who apply for admission to DCTS should expect to be notified about their admittance or non-admittance to the School by the beginning of April 2015.
Students should also be aware that given the amount of time it takes for the Guidance Office to secure the supportive documentation and signatures which must accompany all DCTS applications, early submission of applications is requested.
The Guidance Office cannot guarantee that applications submitted on short notice will be received by DCTS by the stated deadline dates.
