It’s a small move but a big deal for those who live, work or commute in or near southern Dutchess: The College’s 30-year-old Wappinger site is relocating to Fishkill. The new facility will offer a state-of-the-art learning environment, flexible scheduling options and ample parking, as well as the additional convenience afforded by its location at the intersection of Route 9 and Interstate 84.
The 47,000-square-foot DCC extension site will open for the fall 2020 semester on the second floor of the former Mays department store, at what once was the Dutchess Mall. The space will be unrecognizable to those familiar with the building; total renovation of the space includes a welcoming lobby, the installation of large windows, creation of 18 classrooms, science and computer labs, library, study areas, lounge and student services offices.
DCC @ Fishkill will serve both traditional students and those starting or returning to college after a gap in their education. While the College will offer courses previously available at the former Wappinger location, in Fishkill it will provide additional opportunities regarding scheduling, advising, workforce development programs and enhanced focus on the academic areas of business, criminal justice and information technology. The Paramedic program will move to the main campus in Poughkeepsie for better alignment with the College’s health care offerings.
