About Dutchess

About Dutchess: Discover. Connect. Change.

Welcome! Dutchess Community College has been in Dutchess County for more than 50 years. We have the reputation of being the best community college in the state for academic excellence and the success of our graduates. Students who transfer to a four-year school after Dutchess do better and graduate at a higher rate than students who transfer from other colleges. Plus, we currently have the lowest tuition of any college or university in the state.

Our main campus is in Poughkeepsie, with a major extension site in Wappingers Falls. You can also take DCC classes at high schools throughout the county.

As you check out our website, you'll discover how attending DCC can help you achieve your long-term goals; you'll connect with faculty and academic services that will help you succeed; and you'll change your future!
