Delaware County Community College has been an important chapter in my higher education journey! I transferred from a private art school to DCCC because of its affordability and its convenient location to my house. At first I was nervous to attend because of the stigma surrounding community colleges, but I soon realized that DCCC students worked just as hard as anyone in a four-year. My professors and advisors definitely prepared me for taking my next steps! The arts faculty at DCCC is dedicated and always willing to support their students throughout their academic career. In addition, DCCC's graphic design program and leadership opportunities helped me land my dream internship this summer in Philadelphia!

The only downside to DCCC is that its strictly a commuter school since its a community college. However, its strong academics, supportive network of faculty and counselors, beautiful facilities, and leadership opportunities definitely make it worth the commute!

So far I have had the best experience with this college! I take online courses and they have been wonderful! The professors are always so patient with you and are more than willing to help you succeed in their class! Even when I had a few bumps in the road, the professors were so kind to help me when I needed it. I am so glad I chose this college!
Delaware County Community College was an awesome experience for me! The advisors are accessible and easy to communicate with, they make themselves available through email, phone calls, and appointments. The financial advisors are available and helpful when completing the financial aid application. Of all the professors I had, only one was dry and boring, the others were helpful andall about ensuring the student would succeed. I was an older student and have high schoolers that I'm sending through their dual enrollment process. They have many satellite campuses in the area which makes choosing onsite classes much easier and the online programs are incredible! If you are not a driven or self-motivated student online classes will not be for you, but if you are, then go for it; the convenience of online classes is great for working adults or stay at home parents.
