Readmitted Student You've been away from the college two or more consecutive semesters and were previously matriculated (degree-seeking) and wish to re-enter as a degree-seeking student. This is the application to complete if you have been told that you have a readmit hold.

Credit Courses (not enrolling in a degree program):

Part-Time Non-Degree Study – You're not interested in receiving a degree or financial aid from Dutchess Community College and wish to attend as a part-time student (11 or fewer credits). In addition, students attending another college who wish to take summer or winter courses at DCC should choose this link. You may also view and print the non-matriculated student information form.

X-College Connection (HS Only) – You've been approved to take a DCC course at your high school and were told you needed to complete the online application.

Continuing Education Programs:

English as a Second Language (ESL): Improve your English abilities; grammar, reading, writing, listening and speaking are practiced throughout the course. You'll be placed in an appropriate level to maximize your learning.

High School Equivalency (HSE): To earn a High School Equivalency diploma, you must take the Test Assessing Secondary Completion (TASC) Exam. Our program provides interactive and engaging preparation classes that cover the five subject areas of the TASC examination.

The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, or Clery Act, mandates that all Title IV institutions, without exception, prepare, publish and distribute an Annual Security Report. This report consists of two basic parts: disclosure of the College's crime statistics for the past three years; and disclosures regarding the College's current campus security policies. The Dutchess Community College Annual Security Report is available in portable document format [PDF] by clicking here.
