DCCC Tuition Assistance Program

This Scholarship Partnership began in 2005 upon the opening of the Delaware County Community College’s [DCCC] Chester County Campus in Downingtown.

Because Chester County and the Phoenixville Area School District are not “sponsoring” districts of DCCC, County residents enrolling at the college pay double the tuition cost of Delaware County and sponsoring districts’ students. The Foundation’s goal is to act as a sponsor for residents of the Phoenixville Area School District by assisting with their tuition cost.

In 2007 the scholarship program was modified to support only students majoring in health-related or public safety programs.

To qualify for this Tuition Assistance Program:

  • Proof of permanent residence within the Phoenixville Area School District
  • Continuing DCCC students [2nd semester and beyond] pursuing careers on Allied Health and Public Safety
  • A 2.0 GPA and FASFA completion [the DCCC Financial Aid Office can assist]
  • For qualified students, tuition assistance will be awarded on a first come, first serve basis
  • DCCC will notify qualified students, and will be the sole communicator, regarding the tuition assistance award
  • This is an on-going scholarship initiative. Future funding is contingent upon continued funding from the Phoenixville Community Health Foundation.
