Get Started

Become a Student

Whether you’re just starting your college education or returning to school, DCC is the perfect place to begin. Our tuition is the lowest of any college or university in the state, and remarkable opportunities await graduates when they transfer to other schools or enter the workplace.

The College offers more than 40 degree and certificate programs in areas including Business Communications, Engineering, Art, Computer Science, Performing Arts, Liberal Arts and Human Services.

In a recent SUNY survey, DCC students gave the College top marks for quality of education, availability of instructors outside of class, library and classroom facilities and dozens of other important factors.

For those looking for an on-campus living experience, DCC's suite-style residence hall is a great option.
