DCC Announces Fall Open House, Info Session Dates

Oct. 1, 2021--DCC will resume its popular in-person open houses this fall, offering three opportunities for new students and their families to explore the College’s Poughkeepsie, Fishkill and Hudson Valley Regional Airport facilities.

“We are so excited to be resuming in-person open houses this fall,” said Michael Roe, associate dean of enrollment. “Campus tours offer prospective students and their families a real snapshot of what we have to offer - our excellent and innovative academic experiences and our active student life. And this year, we also have two new facilities to show off. So, even if you think you know DCC, stop in and check us out!

DCC’s fall open house and information session schedule includes:
