STOCKTON – Fall Semester launches Aug. 22 at Delta College, where all employees are returning to campus and all students are now able to take in-person or hybrid classes, regardless of vaccination status.
To keep the College community safe, Delta still conducts contact tracing investigations, offers free COVID-19 testing to students and employees, and offers vaccinations and booster shots to students and staff, among other measures.
Online classes and services remain an option for students who enjoy the flexibility of doing coursework on their own time.
Whether in person or online, it’s not too late to take classes this fall. Delta College has been open throughout the pandemic, including critical programs training the next generation of nurses, peace officers, and many other positions.
“We have been here for students, and we will continue to be here for them,” said Superintendent/President Dr. Lisa Aguilera Lawrenson. “With much uncertainty over the state of the national economy moving forward, now is the time to earn college credits and learn new skills that will help you weather a possible economic downturn in the future."
Other benefits of a Delta education include:
Affordability: Two-thirds of Delta students receive free tuition, including all first-time, full-time college students. Nearly 250 Fall Semester classes offer free textbook options
Increased earnings: With unemployment rates low, some might be tempted to choose to work rather than pursue an education. But it’s important to remember that Delta graduates earn $8,700 more per year on average than high school graduates. Those increased earnings add up over time.
Support services: Delta offers a wide range of support services for students of all backgrounds: students who struggle with hunger or homelessness, students who are parents, and first-generation college students, among many others. Whatever your challenges might be, Delta can support you in your journey.
Academic support: Delta offers eight new “Transfer and Career Pathways,” or TrACs, which encompass broad areas of study. Each TrAC has a support team of faculty, counselors, librarians, and resource specialists who can help students find their path, follow it and finish their studies so they can achieve their goals as efficiently as possible.
