DCTC is a great school! My overall experience with DCTC has been awesome. DCTC is a unique school, since it really stands out and is well known among the community. I know some out of state students that are students here at DCTC.

I would definitely choose this school again because it's located in a nice quiet and calm location south of the metro. Just enjoying and minding your own business is relaxing. It's a different feeling.

I really love the instructor's dedication to giving the education that will be used in the workplace. They are very focused on getting each student a career. One thing I have found poor is the emergency notification system. It has a couple glitches that I believe are getting worked out, but it has caused frustration in the past.
The overall experience of DCTC, is wonderful. They will help you in any way that they can. The financial aid office, will help families with food, clothing as well as paying your bills to keep your lights and heat on. I would highly choose DCTC again, and I would tell others to come, my advisor is so wonderful, he will go out of his way to help you with what every help you need. You can also call him any time, he's their for you like clock work. Harold!
