DC3 Suspends Testing Requirements for Enrollment

Published April 15, 2020

Due to an extensive shutdown of available testing for current and future students related to the Kansas “Stay-at-Home” executive order—and because of the closure of national certification companies nationwide—Dodge City Community College (DC3) has suspended all testing requirements for enrollment and placement until further notice.

“We know these are unprecedented situations for students who are planning to enroll in classes either this summer or next fall, and we do not want students to face any hurdles in continuing their educational plans because they are unable to test at this time,” Beverly Temaat, Vice President of Student Affairs & Risk Management, said.

Although the campus is currently closed due to the COVID-19 situation, students are encouraged to enroll immediately by phone or email to ensure they are able to take the classes that work best with their schedules.

For enrollment assistance, students may contact Jorge Estrella at or (620) 430-3298; Melanie Chaussee at or (620) 227-9262; or Josue Gomez at or (620) 227-9264. Students needing to enroll in workforce programs should contact Sara Wasko at or (620) 227-9399.

“We encourage our students to continue working online with their classes,” Temaat said. “We want them to stay home, stay safe and take the important step of getting enrolled for the next semester now. We look forward to resuming with normal operations when it is safe to do so again.”

When the DC3 testing center re-opens, students will be notified and the college will resume offering testing for students and other professional certifications in the area, such as PRAXIS teacher certification. Anyone with questions regarding testing or other areas should email
