1. Submit your Deposit

To secure a place in our incoming fall class, submit a $50 confirming deposit as soon as possible

NOTE: We encourage all students to submit their deposits online. Much of our staff is currently working from home, so mail is not being picked up as frequently.

Go to your application portal. Select “login to my account” and enter your username and password. If you have forgotten your password, follow the prompts to choose a new password.



Note: Space in our class is limited and awarded on a first-come, first-served basis.

2. Complete the FAFSA

We want the DFC to be affordable, but we need your help. Please complete your FAFSA or MN Dream Act application by June 1 so we can get you the funding you need.

Have questions? Contact Sam Smith at or 651-962-8031.
