New Student Orientation

Here’s what we’ve heard from students who participated in past orientations:

It gave me direction, showed me who to talk to and how to take advantage of resources.
I received lots of useful, helpful and comprehensive information.”

Welcome to Delaware County Community College!

Whether you’re a new or returning student, New Student Orientation will give you the tools, advice and information you need to make a successful transition to college life.

Orientation is your opportunity to:

  • Become familiar with the College’s resources
  • Learn what it means to be a college student
  • Attend workshops that will help you achieve your goals
  • Build upon the work begun in your College Planning session
  • Tour the campus
  • Meet faculty, staff and students

We strongly recommend that all new students attend orientation. Parents are also welcome!

Orientation sessions are held at the beginning of each semester, at our Marple Campus and our other locations. Since space is limited, you need to RSVP for the session you plan to attend. View our events calendar and click "orientation" filter.

Orientation sessions at our other locations

If you’re enrolled in classes at a Chester County campus or the Southeast Center, you’re invited to attend one of the orientation programs at those locations. Please RSVP for the session you plan to attend.
