The FBI has notified all Philadelphia area colleges and universities about a recent social media posting threatening violence at an unspecified Philadelphia area college or university on Monday, October 5 at 2 p.m. EST. Since the shooting last week at a community college in Oregon, the FBI has seen similar social media postings throughout the country. Delaware County Community College takes campus safety very seriously and in response to this threat the College has notified the local police departments presiding over all of the College's locations and is working in conjunction with them to enhance security. The College’s Office of Safety & Security will also increase security patrols on Monday and monitor the situation closely. We ask that you remain aware of your surroundings and report any suspicious activity or behaviors to Security at 610-359-5303. 

Student Success and Life

At Delaware County Community College, our focus is on you – our student. In everything we do, from our academic programs to our student activities and services, our goal is simple: to help you succeed. Our commitment to success is strengthened through the College's alliance with "Achieving the Dream," a national effort aimed at helping community college students succeed, and our commitment to continuously improving the unique academic and student support services we offer.

Our goal is to make your College experience the best it can be. That’s why we place a special focus on services including college planning, transfer preparation, counseling, learning resources and more. The College also welcomes qualified students with disabilities and offers accommodations and support for unique needs.

Quality Instruction

Our commitment to your success begins with our faculty, who are dedicated to teaching. You’ll never have a class at the College where the teacher is a graduate assistant rather than a member of our faculty. Most important of all, our faculty is committed to serving you – wherever you are in your life and career.
