Want to earn credits in between semesters? Intensive five-week classes are offered entirely online! Classes begin on December 18, 2021 and conclude January 18, 2022. 

Online courses are just as rigorous and demanding as classroom courses. Please be sure you can dedicate enough time each week to your studies. These five-week accelerated classes will require your complete dedication. Regular tuition and fee rates apply. Financial aid may be available. The College recomends that students only sign up for only ONE course during this intense semester. Please contact your advisor if you plan to sign up for more than one course.

To Register

Students who have taken a course at Delaware County Community College within the past 12 months can register through delaGATE. Students enrolled at other colleges who wish to take a winter course must follow the steps listed on the Visiting Students page. First-time students can get the process started by applying to the College or requesting information. Applications are free at www.dccc.edu/apply.


"Students who do well in our winter session are the ones who understand that taking a five-week online course during this timeframe requires discipline and the ability to juggle life's responsibilities around course requirements. It's almost like going to school seven days a week for five weeks, with the benefit of concentrating on only one course at a time."

-Alexander Plachuta, Assistant Dean of Digital Learning & Teaching Innovation

About Winter Courses

Taking a Winter online course is almost like going to class seven days a week.
To be successful, students should understand how to juggle and prioritize their studies in the midst of the holiday season. Students planning to go on vacation during the session should probably not enroll in these courses. The greatest benefit of taking a winter course is that you will be able to concentrate on one course over a five-week period. Be prepared to accelerate your reading, writing and study time three-fold. We want you to be successful!
After you register, you will receive a welcome email (sent to your student email address) explaining how/when to pay your tuition bill, login procedures, etc. To access Canvas, login to delagate and click on APPS, then CANVAS from the upper right part of the screen.
