A lot of the instructors should find anotherBrightComputer Science
A lot of the instructors should find another line of work. The school is in the business of making money. The student life , dorm life is severely lacking. Probably the worst decision I've made in my life attending this school. I will now be attending a college in the CUNY system. My advice to anyone considering this school because of convenience and cost. Absolutely look elsewhere. Good luck.

Horrible! This college was like attending H.Business - Management and Administration
Horrible! This college was like attending H.S. all over again and the students accounts department is the worst to deal with ever! They treat their alumni horribly. I had teachers miss many classes leaving us with little to learn from that experience and few teachers can control and hold the attention of their classes. It is very difficult to learn when everyone is talking over the instructors but contact with student accounts is by far the worst I have ever seen! Go to SUNY Empire which I did for my Bachelors or Ulster Community that I did some certifications at. I have 3 daughters and I will not allow them to even consider DCC.

Do not attend the nursing program at thisNot so bright
Do not attend the nursing program at this school! It will take 4 years to get an associates and that's if you pass in the first place! The department head (Mrs. Grutzner) uses computerized alga rhythms to make the tests, making a 4.0 student fail the program. I never met a student that had a good thing to say about the nursing program at this school! Do yourself a favor and attend another school that's reputable! When the head of the department is a former alumni and had to retake the courses you're taking because she failed, it makes it hard for the students to take her seriously. Plus the head is uncompassionate, unprofessional, disrespectful and arrogant. Go talk to her and find out for yourself! A little advice would be for you to find someone that attended this school like me and ask them how they liked it! They will all tell you the same thing I am saying here!!!
