There’s still time to enroll in college classes this fall, thanks to a new release of accelerated, remote-learning courses starting September 28 and October 19! Take late-start classes and earn credits toward a DCC degree or to transfer to a four-year school.
You’ll find a range of classes, from general education courses including English, math, science and psychology to program-specific offerings such as criminal justice, computer science and theatre. See program-specific recommendations or the complete list.
Last 10 Weeks (September 28 – December 11)
Second Half of Term (October 19 – December 11)
Other (December 4 and December 11)
Some late-start classes will be taught in person. Some are hybrid (a combination of in-person and remote instruction.) Some will be taught remotely, most of them asynchronously. This means you will be able to work on your coursework at your convenience, while having ample access to your professors. See definitions of course-delivery types here.
Most are options are either 10 weeks (starting Sept. 28) or 7 weeks (starting Oct. 19). Classes end Dec. 11.
Individuals who have never attended college, those who attend another college, DCC students who wish to add a class to their fall schedule and high school juniors and seniors.
Most classes are three credits, with a few one-credit offerings.
DCC tuition is a great value at just $185/credit or $2,225 per semester for full-time study, plus fees and books. Those who wish to sign up for a payment plan may do so through Sept. 24.
Students who enroll in at least six credits this fall and enroll in a degree or certificate program may be eligible for federal financial aid, including Pell grants and student loans.
The deadline to matriculate and apply for financial aid for late-start classes is Sept. 24.
Dutchess and Putnam students who currently attend high school or are homeschooled but wish to simultaneously enroll in late-start DCC courses that apply and are admitted into the early admissions program will pay a special reduced tuition rate of $61.67 per credit. High school students from other counties in New York are charged $185 per credit.
If you are a current DCC student who wishes to add a class, either email the ACT Center at ACT@sunydutchess.edu or call (845) 431-8600. If you are a new student, you must apply to the College. If you are enrolling in a degree or certificate program, or will be attending full time, please complete the matriculated application. Complete the nonmatriculated application if you are not enrolling in a program at this time and do not wish to be considered for financial aid.
Shortly after submitting an admissions application, you will receive an email with next steps. If you have any questions please email email@example.com, with subject line: Late Start.
We hope to see you soon!
