You can also take advantage of our extensive online and hybrid learning program which includes online and independent study courses.
Earning additional degrees and certificates
If you have already received a Delaware County Community College degree or certificate, you may qualify for another degree or certificate by meeting the requirements of the additional curriculum and completing at least 12 more credits at the College. The curriculum leading to an additional degree or certificate must be different from that of the previous program(s). The curriculum leading to a first degree can be the same as or different from that of your certificate. A degree in General Studies may not be earned as an additional degree.
You may simultaneously complete all requirements for two degrees. If you are working toward dual degrees, you need to inform your advisors of your intent to pursue two degree programs, file two separate graduation applications and pay two graduation fees.
