A Welcome from Dr. Kathy Hart,

San Joaquin Delta College Superintendent/President

Kathy Hart

Welcome to San Joaquin Delta College!

Whether you are a new student or a continuing one, the Board, the faculty, the staff, and I want to thank you for choosing Delta.  If you are a prospective student but still undecided about whether to attend Delta, our faculty, counselors, and administrators are here to help provide you with the information you need to make that choice.

I believe Delta is a great "first choice" college. Delta is very affordable, particularly if you are preparing to enter the workforce or to transfer to a bachelor's degree-granting institution. To help you finance your work at Delta, we offer many scholarships and other financial aid options. Our excellent, hardworking faculty are widely known for their strong teaching skills and their personal interest in students and student success. We also have a highly-skilled, friendly staff and very strong student support services for all students including those with special needs. Assessment of your entering skills guides appropriate placement into courses, orientation helps you "learn the ropes," and highly-trained counselors assist you in developing focused, realistic student educational plans that ensure that you realize your educational and career goals without delay. These three steps, all part of California's Student Success Initiative, will give you the foundation you need to be successful. Our campus also offers a wide array of clubs you can join, sports you can participate in and sporting events you can attend, and arts and cultural events that will enrich your college experience.

We at Delta College are all working toward a common mission: the success of our students and our community. We all take this mission very seriously, working together to ensure that our students achieve their educational and personal goals, that Delta is indeed the "Smart Step Forward," and that our community thrives socially and economically. By continuing to develop a climate and culture of equity, inclusion, cooperation, and collaboration; cultivating compassion, forgiveness, and gratitude; and valuing the input of each member of the College community, we are sure to achieve our mission. 

In short, we at San Joaquin Delta College are eager to serve students and our community, and we are fully committed to student success. We hope you will choose to join the Delta family.
