Dear Academic Challenge Students and Parents,
Welcome back from summer! Please read this entire post and look at the linked documents and webpages for important information about the Fall semester.
Student Course Schedules: Fall 2022 schedules were emailed to students on August 4, 2022. Level 4 & 5 DTCC English and Math classes will begin the week of August 22, 2022. Level 5 ENG 122 Technical Writing & Communication will be held as an asynchronous online course with no Zoom meetings; it will open on Saturday, August 20th. All the rest of the AC Level 4 & 5 Fall classes will meet in person on the day, time, and place designated on the Student Course Schedule. All classes will be held either in the Carter Partnership Center or in the Jason Technology Center. View the Delaware Tech Owens Campus Map for room locations.
Textbook Distribution: All Level 4 & 5 course textbooks will be distributed at the first class meeting. Level 5 Technical Writing does not have a textbook.
Virtual Support: Remember that, located in the Stephen J. Betze library, in-person tutoring is available to all Academic Challenge students for all subjects. Tutoring support can be done on a drop-in basis during the center’s hours, or, for higher level math, an appointment can be made with a specific tutor. Students must present their DTCC ID when using the Center. Virtual tutoring is available via Zoom and can be accessed at the DTCC website: www.dtcc.edu//support. Also, be sure to communicate directly with your instructor if you find yourself struggling with your coursework. They want to help!
Withdrawal: Students may withdraw from any Level 4 or 5 class by September 2, 2022, without penalty; if the student needs to withdraw from a course at the beginning of the semester or at any other time during the semester, contact Ms. Dolan at firstname.lastname@example.org right away.
Communication: The Academic Challenge office will continue to communicate with students and parents through the email addresses on file. If you would like to add to or change an email address in our records, email email@example.com. All instructor contact information is located in the D2L course online. Also consult the AC website, where the most current information about AC is available. You can sign up to get an email whenever we post a new announcement by clicking on the Log in/Sign up button at the top of the page.
Covid Protocols: The college currently has no masking or social distancing requirements in place. Throughout the year, any changes in college policy due to Covid can be found at the Coronavirus Update page.
Finally, do not hesitate to contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org), Ms. Sorensen (email@example.com), or your instructor if you have any questions about your Fall courses. We look forward to a great semester in Academic Challenge!
