New Student Orientation

Here’s what we’ve heard from students who participated in past orientations:

It gave me direction, showed me who to talk to and how to take advantage of resources.
I received lots of useful, helpful and comprehensive information.”

Welcome to Delaware County Community College!

Whether you’re a new or returning student, New Student Orientation will give you the tools, advice and information you need to make a successful transition to college life.

Orientation is your opportunity to:

  • Become familiar with the College’s resources
  • Learn what it means to be a college student
  • Build upon the work begun in your College Planning session
  • Tour the campus
  • Meet faculty, staff and students

All new students are required to attend an orientation session. Parents are also welcome!

Orientation sessions are held at the beginning of the fall and spring semesters, at our Marple Campus, Southeast Center, Upper Darby Center, Exton Center, Downingtown Campus and Pennocks Bridge Campus. Since space is limited, you need to RSVP for the session you plan to attend.
