The courses that are half online and halfAverageOther
The courses that are half online and half in class are a joke. They are excuses for the teachers not to have to teach. Class work, testing, and even what is presented in class is 'for dummies'; you are never challenged past 7th grade grammar school education. Yes, indeed.

If you take a course that is totally online, don't expect actual instructional help when it's needed. Most of the time, since the coursework is so easy, you won't need any help; but in the 3 years that I took classes I needed help several times and I was refused this help. The teachers who teach online are also teaching 10 other online courses at once, so even if you are adamant about needing help, they will just drop your need for help without considering how it will hurt your grade. One of them also unfairly graded or at least, did't understand how to grade.I once took a quickbooks course in a lab, and assumed we would actually be taught because there was a teacher present. He never did teach us. He was just 'there' to pick up our coursework, and told us so, and said we didn't even have to show up. I contested this with the higher-ups and wanted my money back, but in the end I stayed in the class because they said 'he was an excellent teacher'; well, he may have been 'nice' but he never actually 'taught' he just sat behind his desk without speaking anything every class. This is just 15% of my complaints for this school, if that, I guarantee it.

Question
The only positive is that it is relativelyQuite BrightEnglish
The only positive is that it is relatively cheap to attend. The staff are rude and completely unhelpful. The faculty are mostly absent and uneducated themselves. The coursework is a joke Communication with staff is awful, you will never receive an email response or phone call to a problem. Expect to be yelled at repeatedly, not helped, wait in line for hours and have your financial aid held indefinitely. I have been waiting 5 months (so far) to get financial aid that was APPROVED by FAFSA but DCC is holding onto it. I have been to other universities and this is the worst experience I have ever had with a college. I can't stress it enough - if you have ANY other options - do NOT attend this "school".

Question
I love this school.Super BrilliantAccounting
I love this school. The used textbook store is right across the street, with cheaper prices than the on-campus bookstore. There is a fast-food resturant nearby, and a not-as-inexpensive burger shop right there too, with good, good burgers. The school has a wonderfully diverse student population, with students coming to school from up to two hours away. While I could hope for more help from certain faculty at times, no one has ever been rude to me, just dismissive. I you go to school here, and you study, you do well.
