College Update
May 14, 2020

The following are some of the key operational changes in response to the COVID-19 pandemic:

  • The College is open virtually while our campuses and centers are closed in accordance with Governor Wolf’s directive that all non-life-sustaining physical business closures remain in effect in Delaware and Chester counties until otherwise notified. Remote learning will continue through the summer sessions.
  • The College has made the difficult decision to continue offering most courses in an online format for the fall semester. This means if you have already registered for a face-to-face course, it will likely be changed to a fully online format. These online courses may have assigned meeting times during which students and faculty convene online at the same time, they could have no set meeting time with students engaging online with faculty, course content, discussions, and testing at different times, or a combination of both. A small number of courses will be scheduled in a hybrid format, which includes limited class meetings on campus with other work assigned online. If you have any questions, you can call Career and Counseling (610-359-5324) or email [email protected] to speak with an academic advisor.
  • The 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 2020-2021 academic year. To further assist students who may be facing uncertain economic times, the College is offering a 10% tuition discount for all classes taken during Summer 2 (June 29 – August 6).
  • The IT Support Center team is available to assist you via remote support Monday-Thursday, 7:30 a.m.-10 p.m. 
  • All clubs, athletics, student-related activities and external events are canceled through the summer.
  • After surveying students and reviewing options, the College has decided to move Commencement to the fall. Decisions about the ceremony date and location will be informed by the guidance from federal and state authorities and the availability of a suitable venue. Graduates will be notified of the new date and location at least 45 days prior to the rescheduled date.

The College is monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation closely. We are in close contact with state and local health agencies to ensure that the College remains aware of all issues, concerns, guidelines, and protocols pertaining to the virus.

Out of an abundance of caution, we continue to take measures to ensure the health and safety of all students, including a deep cleaning and sanitizing of all facilities, which has already been completed. 

We will continue to keep you updated as we learn more. If you have not already done so, we encourage you to sign up for our emergency text alerts.
