The faculty and staff of Delgado Community College have returned to campus as a result of the easing of public health restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Delgado is now open, our offices are fully staffed, and our faculty is ready to teach students face-to-face this fall—in addition to offering the convenience of online and virtual classes,” said Larissa Littleton-Steib, Delgado chancellor. “The past 16 months have been difficult for many students and potential students who are more comfortable in the traditional on-campus environment. We would like everyone to know that Delgado welcomes you back to campus for the fall semester.”
Registration for fall semester classes at Delgado is now underway, and classes begin on Aug. 14. For more information on enrollment, visit www.dcc.edu, or contact the Admissions Office at email@example.com or by calling 504-671-5012 or 1-855-215-8247.
For safety and convenience, the College will continue to offer online and hybrid classes. For students who would like to enroll in online classes but do not have access to a computer at home, Delgado’s laptop computer loaner program has been expanded.
“Delgado Community College recognizes that many students continue to be concerned about their health and safety as the COVID-19 pandemic wanes,” said Steib. “We urge them to get the free vaccination as soon as possible, and to continue practicing safe social interaction and taking the basic precautions of washing hands frequently and wearing face coverings—for an extra measure of protection from the coronavirus,” she said.
She added, “Through this pandemic, the focus has always been for Delgado to adapt as needed to safeguard the health of our students, faculty, and staff, while simultaneously ensuring operational continuity for our programs and services,” Steib said. “We ask that everyone continue to use our daily COVID-19 health check online, and to get tested for the virus,” she said.
Delgado offers instruction online and at seven locations, including the City Park, West Bank (Algiers), Sidney Collier, Charity School of Nursing, and Maritime and Industrial Training Center locations in New Orleans, the River City Site in Avondale, and the Jefferson Site in Metairie.
