The mission of the Library and Learning Resource Center is to provide students, faculty and staff with the learning resources and services needed to support the mission of the College. Completely operational on all campuses, LDCC Library is staffed by two full-time Librarians and student workers, who are available during library hours, in-person, by phone (318-345-9027), or email (Library@ladelta.edu).

LDCC Library’s collection holds many core items for the curriculums offered by the college. To date, the collection has more than 347,200 print and electronic item records, which includes: books, serials, e-books, magazines, e-magazines, journals, e-journals, anatomy models, databases, audio-visual materials, and equipment, such as headphones and webcams.

The Library provides the following services to faculty, staff, and students:  materials and equipment circulation, reference/research assistance, Library Orientation tours, information literacy instruction, tutoring services, and digital study guides and practice exams for test preparation, including, NCLEX-RN, ATI TEAS, ACCUPLACER, ASVAB, and others.

Each campus library provides computer reference workstations and print/scan/copier stations, as well as digital access to all Library databases and electronic services, such as Learning Express. All LDCC Library databases and electronic services can be accessed off-site by entering the student’s LOLa number and six-digit date of birth (mmddyy).

 

Library code of Conduct

The Library is a place for reading and study. Students are asked to adhere to the following Library expectations:

  • All electronic devices should be placed on silent.
  • School-related work takes priority over socializing and entertaining in all areas of the Library/LRC, including the computer lab.
  • Printing should be for school related items only and should not be abused.

Students should conduct themselves in a manner which is conducive to quiet study. Violators may be instructed to leave the Library. For more serious or repeated infractions, a student may be required to surrender his/her College Identification Card.

Veteran Services  

LDCC takes extra measures to communicate with our veterans, inform them of their benefits rights and privileges and assure them that they will always have the full support of the institution.

On April 27, 2012, President Obama signed Executive Order 13607: Establishing Principles of Excellence for Educational Institutions Serving Members, Veterans, Spouses, and Other Family. These principles were developed as institution guidelines to assure financial and educational transparency to our service members, veterans and families, as well to ensure they have access to the information needed to make informed decisions concerning their well-earned Federal military and veterans’ educational benefits.

As a VA approved institution, Louisiana Delta Community College proudly commits to the Principles of Excellence. We have and will continue to provide prospective and continuing military students and family-members information regarding cost and quality of education at Delta along with high quality academic and student support services.

By participating in the POE, Louisiana Delta Community College is officially a “VA Friendly” school and will be listed as so on the GI Bill website.

 

Veteran Priority Registration

Veteran Priority Registration gives veterans and military service members an opportunity to register for coursework prior to the published registration date for the general student population. Veterans and military service members receiving education benefits are eligible for priority registration. Veterans and military service members who are not using their education benefits must provide proof of military service to receive priority registration. Accepted proof of service include:

 

  • DD214
  • US Armed Forces Active Duty Orders
  • Valid US Armed Forces DOD ID/Common Access Card
  • Valid US Armed Forces Retiree ID card

 

Pending VA Payment

Background

Section 103 of Public Law (PL) 115-407, ‘Veterans Benefits and Transition Act of 2018,’ amends Title 38 US Code 3679 by adding a new subsection (e) that requires disapproval of courses of education, beginning August 1, 2019, at any educational institution that does not have a policy in place that will allow an individual to attend or participate in a course of education, pending VA payment, providing the individual submits a certificate of eligibility for entitlement to educational assistance under Chapter 31 or 33.

 

Pending Payment Compliance

In accordance with Title 38 US Code 3679(e), Louisiana Delta Community Colleges adopts the following additional provisions for any students using U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Post-9/11 G.I. Bill® (Ch. 33) or Vocational Rehabilitation & Employment (Ch. 31) benefits, while payment to the institution is pending from VA.  LDCC will not:

  • Prevent the student’s enrollment;
  • Assess a late penalty fee to the student;
  • Require the student to secure alternative or additional funding;
  • Deny the student access to any resources (access to classes, libraries, or other institutional facilities) available to other students who have satisfied their tuition and fee bills to the institution.

However, to qualify for this provision, such students may be required to:

  • Produce the VA Certificate of Eligibility (COE) by the first day of class;
  • Provide a written request to be certified;
  • Provide additional information, if needed, to properly certify the enrollment as described in other institutional policies

GI Bill® is a registered trademark of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).  More information about education benefits offered by VA is available at the official U.S. government website at https://www.benefits.va.gov/gibill.

 

College Tuition and Fees   

Click here to view the Tuition and Cost Homepage

Upon registration, tuition and registration fees must be paid by the payment deadline(s) posted. Classes that remain unsecured by the established due dates published are subject to being deleted for non-payment. Students can secure classes by completing one of the following payment methods:

  • Full payment of tuition and fees in person or online (through LoLA). 
  • Enrollment in the Online Payment Plan.
  • Approved Financial Aid.
  • Approved Contract or Waiver applied to account.

 

Student Billing and Refunds  

Adjustment of Tuition

For students reducing their credit hours or officially withdrawing from the College, all or a portion of their refundable tuition may be credited to their account according to the Tuition/Fee Adjustment Schedule. The portion (percentage) is an adjustment to the tuition and fees the student is assessed for the semester, not a refund of what the student has already paid. Students must complete the drop/withdrawal process prior to the posted deadlines to qualify for a reduction in amounts owed.

Nonattendance does not constitute withdrawal. Students must withdraw from the College prior to the stated deadlines if they decide not to attend. Students who do not submit a drop request or drop the course(s) online may have a financial obligation to the College regardless of attendance.

If a credit balance remains after all tuition and fees due are deducted from any payments that have been applied, the balance will be returned to the student within 14 days from the date of the credit balance origination.  Credit/debit card payment refunds will be returned to the card originally charged.  All other refunds will be processed through BankMobile, to the refund choice as selected by the student. 

No refund shall be made for a non-credit course unless the class is cancelled. 

When LDCC cancels a course, 100% of tuition and course related fees are refunded with the exception of the credit card convenience fee and payment plan enrollment fee. 

Students who wish to appeal their tuition/fee adjustments (or lack thereof) must complete and submit a Tuition Appeal Form

 

Tuition Adjustment Schedules

Payment Plan Option

  • The Deferred Payment Plan for Louisiana Delta Community College is administered by TransAct and is available to all students. The first payment plan installment amount plus the $30 TransAct administrative fee is due upon payment plan registration. All subsequent payments will be due monthly, thereafter. 
  • When student’s agreement with TransAct is terminated due to a closed or frozen account, the tuition and fees for the semester will become immediately due to LDCC. A financial hold will be placed on the student’s account, which will prevent transcript and all future services to be withheld until the student’s balance is paid in full.

 

Returned Checks

The charge for each returned check is $25.00. When a check is returned, the student will forfeit all check writing privileges with LDCC in the future. Putting a stop payment on a check will not constitute an official resignation from the College.

 

Credit / Debit Cards

Students may pay for tuition or other charges with a debit or credit card online or in person.  If paying in person, the cardholder must have a valid ID available. Students choosing to pay with a credit card will be assessed a 2.75 percent convenience fee at the time of payment. If a credit card charge is disputed by the cardholder, the Office of Student Accounts will advise the Enrollment Services department that all future services will be withheld for this student until such time the disputed charges have been resolved.

 

Delinquent Accounts

If a student has any outstanding balance, LDCC reserves the right to withhold future services including but not limited to registration, transcript requests, issuing diplomas, use of facilities, and other services as deemed appropriate by the College. 

Failure to honor payment plan dates or pay any balance in full by the end of the term may result in the account being placed with the Office of Debt Recovery for collection. Students will be responsible for all collection fees associated with accounts placed for collection.

This assesses the student in the areas of math, reading, and writing.  Faculty/advisors use the results to assist students in determining appropriate courses for their academic career.  Other available examinations for the students and the community include ADA, ASE, GRE, LSLBC, TEAS, Praxis, NHA, HiSet, and Workkeys.

Accuplacer

ACCUPLACER is a suite of untimed computerized placement tests that quickly, accurately, and efficiently assesses English, writing, and math skills. These scores are used to guide the student to take certain classes that will assist them in preparing for future academic requirements. Applicants may retest as often as they would like (except those applying for the Practical Nursing program) up to the end of the add/drop date of each semester.

Employee and Applicant Grievance Procedure Policy  
Delta Community College adheres to the LCTCS policy on Grievance – For All Employess (policy # 6.015):
  1. Guidelines

It is the policy of the Louisiana Community and Technical College System to develop and maintain a satisfied and efficient work force. An employee who is seeking a solution concerning disagreements arising from working relationships, working conditions, employment practices, or differences in interpretation of policy is encouraged to discuss the matter with the immediate supervisor before filing a grievance. Most concerns can be resolved informally without the need for a formal grievance. Performance evaluations are not grievable under this formal grievance policy. LCTCS believes that employee grievances should be resolved at the lowest possible administrative level and an employee must exhaust all administrative procedures at the institution level before an appeal can be made to the President. Only those grievances that are related to the President or that the President cannot resolve shall be sent to the Board.

When an employee feels he/she has been treated unjustly, the employee has the right to utilize the grievance policy without fear of retaliation, discrimination, or reprisal because of the action. The decision to utilize the grievance policy shall be the employee’s decision. It is understood that a grievance will be kept confidential except to the extent necessary to investigate and resolve the grievance.

When an employee feels that a condition of employment or application of a policy is unjust or inequitable, he/she is encouraged to first seek assistance from his/her immediate supervisor, who should attempt to solve the problem The supervisor is responsible for handling the complaint and striving to arrive at a prompt, equitable solution.

Occasionally, an employee’s complaint involves his/her supervisor, or the employee does not feel the matter has been resolved by the supervisor. In such an instance, the employee Page 2 of 3 should feel free to file a formal grievance. The employee may appeal a complaint through to the college Chancellor. In the event that the complaint is appealed beyond the Chancellor level, the LCTCS President will respond to the appeal through a procedure established by the system President.

When an employee feels he/she is being discriminated against because of race, color, sex, ethnic origin, religion, age, veteran status, or disability and is not able to discuss this issue with his/her supervisor, the employee should refer to the LCTCS policy on harassment.

Only those grievances that are not eligible for appeal to the Director of Civil Service or the Civil Service Commission shall be processed through the LCTCS grievance policy.

Under certain circumstances, Civil Service classified employees should use the Civil Service procedure for appeals and hearings rather than the LCTCS system grievance policy. Examples of the types of actions over which the Civil Service Commission assumes responsibility are disciplinary actions which impact pay, such as:

  • Removal of a permanent employee for cause
  • Suspension with or without pay as a disciplinary action
  • Reduction in pay
  • Prohibited political activity
  • Classification and Pay 

 

   2. Grievance Procedure

To file a grievance, employees should use the following procedures:

  • The employee is encouraged to work out issues of concern with his or her immediate supervisor on an informal basis. However, this is not required before filing a grievance.
  • The employee should file a written grievance as soon as possible after the action giving rise to the grievance and normally within fifteen (15) working days.
  • The grievance should be directed to employer’s supervisor, unless the grievance involves that supervisor, in which case the grievance should be directed to the next in line of management.
  • The supervisor or, if applicable, the next in line of management , normally has fifteen (15) working days to respond to the grievance in writing.
  • Should an employee be unsatisfied with a response from their supervisor, he or she may direct a written grievance to the Executive Director of Human Resources within ten (10) working days of receiving their supervisor’s response. The Executive Director will act upon the complaint, in writing, normally within ten (10) days.
  • The Executive Director will arrange an investigation with the parties involved. The Executive Director will then respond in writing to the aggrieved employee normally within fifteen (15) working days once the investigation is complete.
  • The employee may appeal a complaint through to the college Chancellor within 10 working days of receiving the response.
  • In the event that the complaint is appealed beyond the Chancellor level, the LCTCS President will respond to the appeal through a procedure established by the system President. 

Time periods provided in this policy for presenting or responding to grievances may be extended when necessary and appropriate.
