We’re pleased to report that our plan, approved by the state and informed by SUNY and our county, ensures that students will continue to receive an exceptional DCC education while keeping members of our campus community safe and reducing the spread of Covid-19. While instruction will continue, our residence hall will be closed until Fall 2021.

Our class schedule provides a predominantly remote delivery. A very limited number of courses, such as some labs and others that require special on-site resources and in-person instruction, will meet on the Poughkeepsie campus within public health safety guidelines.

There are various methods of remote course delivery. Every class section is coded to give students an understanding of what type of educational experience to expect.

Student services – including Admissions, Advising, Registration, Financial Services and Testing – are being delivered remotely. If you are a current DCC student, contact your advisor via email for help or email act@sunydutchess.edu. If you are a new, accepted student, follow the information you received from Admissions or email admissions@sunydutchess.edu.

DCC ID Cards

All members of the college community must obtain and wear a DCC photo ID whenever they are on campus. Student ID cards are issued in the Campus Security & Safety Office located in the Orcutt Student Services building. Enter through the east rear door of the building, Monday – Friday from 8:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. Due to Covid restrictions, only one student will be allowed into the building at a time. Please allow adequate time to get your new ID. Students must have an official valid photo ID and a copy of their class schedule to obtain their DCC ID.

Covid-19 requires us all to be flexible and adaptable as the situation – and public health guidelines – evolve. Please check back for updates. We look forward to helping you and wish you every success!
