Hello Students,

With so many changes to our lives and routines due to COVID-19, I hope this communication finds you safe and healthy. This semester has certainly had its challenges and obstacles, but you have successfully transitioned to remote learning and proven that nothing can stop you from attaining your education.

As you look ahead to the Summer and Fall, I encourage you to continue with your coursework and move forward in your goal of earning your certificate or degree. The College will continue to offer all the classes you need as well as services such as advising, tutoring and counseling. If you are thinking of taking time off at the conclusion of the Spring semester, or you are unsure or hesitant to enroll in Summer and Fall classes, please consider the following:

  • No Increase in Tuition & Fees: Delaware County Community College is committed to making education affordable. Given the ongoing crisis in the United States and in our local community, and in an effort to assist students with the cost of education, there will be no tuition and fee increase for the 2021 academic year.
  • Tuition Discount: To help you continue with your college education, Delaware County Community College is offering a 10% tuition discount for all classes taken during Summer II (June 29 – August 6). Taking just one class during the Summer II term brings you that much closer to graduation.
  • Partnership with West Chester University: Delaware County Community College and West Chester University of Pennsylvania are working on an exciting new partnership that will provide students with the opportunity to complete their degree in a cost effective manner. Information about this partnership will be announced in the coming weeks!

During these difficult times, when so many things may seem uncertain, remember that the College is here for you. Please reach out to your advisor to discuss all your options and possibilities so that you can be fully prepared to continue with your studies. Delaware County Community College is here to serve and support you. Education opens doors, and ours will always be open to you.
