Register Now for Safe, Affordable Education and Training Opportunities In-Person and Online This Summer and Fall
(Delaware & Chester Counties, PA • April 1, 2021)—Delaware County Community College has expanded its offering of on-campus classes, student services, some sports and activities this summer and fall. A robust offering of online classes is also available. The time to enroll in summer and fall classes, with multiple sessions available, is now and the College is ready to assist students in registering, whether in person or virtually.
Due to COVID-19 safety precautions and based on a survey of students, the College will offer a variety of ways for students to receive quality, affordable education and training, whether it be in person, online or in a hybrid (combination of in person and online) format. Safety is the College’s number one priority, with the College adhering to government guidelines for any in-person classes and activities, such as mandatory health screenings to enter College facilities, face masks, social distancing and hand sanitizer stations. The College also will have staggered start/end times for in-person classes, with limits on room capacities and physical distancing markers in hallways and classrooms.
A recent survey found that many of Delaware County Community College students have a strong desire to return to campus for in-person instruction, which the College has offered on a limited basis since May 2020. Additionally, the College has offered online classes for more than 20 years and is ready to help students pursue their educational goals. Students can earn transferable credits and complete career preparation coursework in person or from the safety of their homes and receive a quality, online learning experience.
Five modalities of instruction will be offered this summer and fall:
- Traditional Classroom—face-to-face, fully on-campus instruction
- Hybrid—a blend of on-campus and asynchronous online instruction
- Synchronous Online—completely online in real time with set meeting days/times
- Asynchronous Online—completely online with no set meeting days/times
- Synchronous & Asynchronous Online—a blend of synchronous and asynchronous online instruction
