January 31, 2013 – Prospective studentsand familiesinterested in learning about Dutchess Community College’s academic programs, financial aid opportunities and suite-style residence hall are invited to attend a special Discover DCC Day on Friday, Feb. 15 at 1 p.m. on DCC’s main Poughkeepsie campus. Most high schools are closed that day for winter break.

Participants will be able to experience the College’s campus environment, tour the facilities, find out about DCC’s more than 60 two-year degree and certificate programs, learn about financial aid and visit the new residence hall.

The event is a great way for both students and parents to see why DCC – which at $3,100/year charges the lowest tuition in the state – has earned a reputation for providing outstanding quality and value.

Many DCC graduates transfer to prestigious colleges and universities such as Cornell, RPI, Ithaca, Marist, Vassar, Yale and top SUNY schools.
