Main Page Content


the mission of delta college is:

  • to ATTRACT visionary and motivated students and faculty,
  • to ENGAGE them in a creative and nurturing community,
  • to EQUIP them for the challenges of contemporary society, and
  • to PROPEL them into that society as agents of positive change.


Delta College is a unique program that can be found exclusively at The College at Brockport. There is no identical program in the country!

Delta College functions as a “college within the College” and serves as a “learning lab”, where the cutting edge ideas of higher education are applied.

Our classes have 25 students or fewer because we believe students succeed in an intimate learning environment where they feel known and supported. Our curriculum satisfies Brockport’s General Education requirements. Courses are taught by dedicated and involved faculty. Instead of taking courses in a large lecture hall, our students walk into a community.

Delta focuses on experiential learning. We believe that there are some lessons that are best learned outside of the classroom. This is why we include 16 credits of experiential learning practicums as part of our unique curriculum. Students study abroad and/or do internships to gain real world experience. These experiences are foundational in providing students with direction for their life.

The Delta College curriculum also includes the practical skills needed for a student’s professional life. In addition to internships, students take three professional development courses which teach them skills in how to write a resume, prepare for an interview, give public presentations, and more!

Delta College is compatible with all majors. There are no GPA, SAT or ACT requirements. We are looking for motivated students who want more from their educational experience. If you are interested in becoming part of the Delta Experience, apply now!
