In August 2009 San Joaquin Delta College opened a satellite campus in Mountain House, San Joaquin County, California. The campus is more commonly known as the South Campus at Mountain House, and is located at 2073 S. Central Parkway, Mountain House, California 95391. It consists of 24 portable buildings, most of which serve as classrooms. It also has an administrative building and a student lounge.


The active President is Kathy Hart, Ph.D., who took over in February 2012.

Jeffrey Marsee, Ph.D., was the president at College of the Redwoods in Eureka, California for three years before coming to Stockton. By January 2012, the faculty had conducted a vote of "no confidence" against Marsee.[5] Eventually, Marsee was placed on leave in February, officially tendered his resignation, and was released from his contract by February 29, 2012.[6] Marsee had been a very controversial figure at Redwoods as well, and was noted as having a history of causing campus turmoil.[7]
