We're Here for You

As you make your college decision, there’s no need to look further than Dutchess Community College! While the DCC campus is officially closed, the Admissions Office is working hard to help you keep moving forward. Applications are open for the spring and fall 2021 semesters and we are continuing to offer several online presentations to help you discover the many benefits of attending DCC!

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

Learn More about DCC

These are group information sessions led by an admissions counselor. We will discuss the academic, social, and financial reasons why DCC is the best fit for many students. Click the link above to get to the portal and choose the session you'd like to sign up for. Sessions are offered on Tuesdays at 6 p.m. and Thursdays from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.

Join us on Zoom to get your questions answered and assistance with the application process. Counselors will be available in Zoom rooms to answer your questions. Click this link to join us each Wednesday between 3 p.m.- 4 p.m.

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 act@sunydutchess.edu.

Complete the Application Process

This is a hands-on workshop where we will walk you through the online DCC application. We recommend that you have a computer or tablet for this session as we will be using a browser with multiple tabs open. These workshops are held on Wednesdays at 4 p.m. Click the link above to get to the DCC Admissions Event portal, then find the session you want to sign up for.

In addition, please be aware of the following:

  • After you apply for admission, be sure to check your application status at connect.sunydutchess.edu/status.

  • If you haven’t already sent us your high school transcript, please check with your school counselor to see if it can be sent electronically. If you have credits from another college, please check that college's website and request that your transcripts be sent online.

  • The Testing Center is now offering on-campus placement testing again, as well as remote testing. Visit the Testing Services webpage for more information.

Please take a look at our Admissions Checklist to review what you can do now regarding financial aid, immunization requirements, and important steps you need to take as we approach the new academic year.

We look forward to helping you!

If you have any questions, please use the online chat box on the bottom of the screen, email the Admissions Office or call us at (845) 431-8010.
