The fall semester is underway! 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 for fall and spring.
The fall class schedule has been revised to reflect a transition to 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are a new, accepted student, follow the information you received from Admissions
or email email@example.com.
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!
