The DCC campus is open to the public, and the Admissions Office is working hard to help you keep moving forward. You can learn about the academic, financial and other benefits of attending DCC by participating in an information session or presentation. Sign up today!

We're offering a variety of workshops and info sessions, based on your needs.

We are offering campus tours of our Poughkeepsie and Fishkill locations in addition to our virtual information sessions. Click the link above to get to the portal and choose the session you'd like to sign up for. Pre-event health surveys and masks are required to attend the in-person events.

During these sessions, you will have the opportunity to meet individually with an admissions counselor to discuss your specific interests and questions about DCC. You may select either an online video conversation or a phone call. Register to schedule an appointment to meet with an admissions counselor virtually. These are not advising appointments. If you need advising, please email

Do you have questions about financial aid, your bill, or student residency requirements? Schedule an appointment to meet with a representative either via telephone or Zoom.
