Delhi College of Arts and Commerce (DCAC), a premier institution of higher learning, is a constituent college of the Delhi University, financed partially (5 percent) by the Govt. of NCT, Delhi. It is a co-educational institution situated in prime location of Netaji Nagar, with various prominent residential societies and commercial ventures in its proximate neighbourhood. It is well connected by the Delhi Metro, the nearest stations being INA and AIIMS, as well as by road transport, through both bus routes as well as auto rickshaws/ e-rickshaws from the nearest Metro/ bus station. With the proposed Metro stations of Bhikaji Cama Place and R.K. Puram likely to be operational soon, commuting to college would further be eased.

The College was established in 1987 under the aegis of Delhi Administration once the erstwhile G.D. Salwan College closed its operation. Though it is now an entity independent of the Salwan Trust, yet in its formative years, it transformed out of the erstwhile G.D. Salwan College that was located in Rajinder Nagar. The college presently operates in a building owned by the Department of Higher Education, GNCTD. Despite the infrastructural constraints posed due to a non permanent self owned building, DCAC has earned the distinction of being one of the most sought after colleges, not just in South Campus, but also Delhi University as a whole. DCAC was also the pioneer college in Delhi University to introduce a three year Honors Programme in Journalism in July-August 1989.

DCAC has a campus area of approximately 5 acres, with a built up area of around 2.5 acres. The college offers 18 undergraduate courses leading to the Bachelor with Honours/Programme Degree with various paper options for students to choose from both under the CBCS mode and the erstwhile semester/ FYUP mode. The college also offers various add on and self financed courses. Till 2013, the college, in collaboration with ILLL, also offered an add on English Language Proficiency Course, Basic Level to give students practice in using English in a wide variety of contexts relevant to work, study and social activities. Besides this, in 2015, the college also collaborated with National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC), which has since been supplemented with the Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana Scheme. The college has also been making various efforts and initiatives to integrate cross cutting issues as gender, climate change, environmental education, human rights, ICT, etc. through various cells, societies and community outreach programmes.

The college can boast of alumni like Mr. Rahul Verma, Social worker and activist, founded the Uday Foundation; Mr. Nalin Mehta, Senior Journalist, Former Managing Editor of Headlines Today; Mr. Rahul Kanwal, Senior Journalist, TV Today Networks, Mr. Cyrus Sahukar, VJ and Bollywood Actor; Ms. Rekha Rana, Bollywood Actress and theatre artist; Mr. Vinil Mathew, Ad filmmaker and Bollywood film director; Mr. Gursimran Khamba, Comedian of AIB fame, among others.
