Students enjoy outside activities as they return to campus for the start of the fall 2021 semester at College of DuPage.

As part of its measured approach, approximately 50 percent of fall courses are available as full in-person or in a hybrid format. The semester, which began Monday, Aug. 23, includes 16-, 12- and two eight-week sessions. 

Registration remains open for new and late-start courses.

As the College continues to prioritize the safety and health of students, masks are required in all campus buildings.

In addition to full in-person or a hybrid courses, which include partial in-person instruction, remaining sections are offered in a traditional online format or as virtual class meetings. Students in hybrid courses visit the campus for labs, studios or clinical work, with additional required learning online. Online courses, meanwhile, are internet-based, conducted off-campus and adhere to instructor timelines and designated learning outcomes. Students interact with each other primarily through discussion boards and written messages.

Virtual class meetings allow students to interact with faculty and peers in a live remote format. These classes take place completely online at specified days and times using video chat software. 

Student service offices are open for in-person appointments. Food service also is available.
