Financial Aid

At Delaware County Community College, we believe that a great education doesn’t have to be expensive. Read more about our tuition and fees.

But even though the College works to keep tuition at reasonable levels, we recognize that you may be concerned about how you’ll pay for it all.

Good news! Financial aid is available, and we do everything we can to keep the financial aid process from being intimidating. We offer many opportunities for students who need financial aid, ranging from government grants and subsidized loans through scholarships offered through the College’s Educational Foundation. In the most recent school year, our students received more than $20 million in financial aid and private scholarships.

Your first step – whatever your age – is to apply for financial aid. We strongly recommend that you complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as soon as possible so that you can take advantage of all available aid. The school code is 007110.
