Return to Campus

The College resumed full operations at all campuses and centers on Tuesday, June 1. Since the College has modified hours in the summer to allow for four-day schedule, all locations will be closed on Fridays from May 21 through August 13.


COVID Protocols

Effective July 19, face masks will be optional for all students, faculty, staff and visitors to the College who have been vaccinated. Unvaccinated students, faculty, staff and visitors should wear face masks/coverings that adhere to CDC guidelines.

Daily temperature checks and wrist band distribution is no longer necessary effective July 19.

Vaccination is not required for students, faculty, staff or visitors, but it is highly recommended. Proof of vaccination is not required.

For the Fall 2021 semester, the College will move to 3 feet of social distancing, in all classrooms and common areas, with the exception of the Allied Health & Nursing and Workforce & Economic Development divisions which will return to full capacity.

Given the low number of COVID cases being reported in Delaware and Chester Counties, the College will not be conducting contact tracing. Delaware County is in the process of establishing a Health Department, however until that process is complete contact tracing for Delaware County continues to be handled by the Chester County Health Department.

The College will continue with the enhanced cleaning protocols to include but not limited to, the cleaning of classrooms and computer labs between classes.


Fall 2021 Classes

As reported cases of COVID-19 decrease and as the vaccines have become more widely available, Delaware County Community College will re-open for expanded in-person classes, student services, and some sports and activities this summer and fall while following all local, state and CDC guidelines. 

In-person class schedules are being developed with staggered start/end times while following all CDC-recommended limited room capacity, and other social distancing measures to provide a safe environment for all students, faculty and staff.

Five modalities of instruction will be available for summer and fall classes. To learn more, visit dccc.edu/classes.
