It is great! There are a wide variety of classes to choose from for a Liberal Arts - AA or even an AS degree. They have helpful tools and staff to help you plan out your classes. They offer a variety of times for classes as well, you can have a class that is early morning, mid afternoon, or even night classes. With the range of class times, it makes it easier for more people to get a degree. They have a few set teachers per class, but they offer many classes per semester so you do not have to wait long on a waiting list.
I have attended DMACC since 2012 as I was taking college courses in high school. The professors are more worried about the students rather than the paycheck. They want to see their students grow and be successful in life. DMACC is growing and they really care and get worried about their students if they only miss one day. The Ankeny DMACC really does not have DORMS per say but they do have apartments that are really close to campus, close I mean like walking distance.
DMACC has a little to no partying unless it is at the apartments (dorms) and that is cut to little to no partying because they care about their students and want them to go to school to get their education.
My overall experience with DMACC is awesome because if I had things going on they were very understanding and worked with me rather than against me.
I only took one online course, never met my teacher but he was very eager to help me whenever I was stuck! I also ended the class with 100% so I clearly absorbed all the information necessary to thoroughly understand the subject. Accessibility is fantastic, left you up to your own schedule while still maintaining concrete due dates, and had very good tests and quizzes online.
