Support for Distance Learners

You can access DCC services—including some designed especially for online or distance learners—from virtually anywhere.

Help Available Wherever You Are

Online or distance learning opens opportunities for students everywhere—especially adults balancing school, work and family.

You don’t have to be on campus to access DCC advising, tutoring, research tools and other services. See some of the support distance students value most.

Get academic help with live online tutoring in a range of subjects. Or schedule a remote appointment with the Math & Science Center or the Writing Center.

Our Academic, Career & Transfer Center offers remote appointments, virtual events and other ways to stay connected and plan your path.

DCC’s Francis U. and Mary F. Ritz Library provides live chat, online or phone appointments, live and recorded online programming, and remote access to research tools.

Identity Verification

In keeping with the federal Higher Education Opportunity Act, DCC verifies that students who register for an online course are the same students who participate in, complete, and earn credit for these courses.

Our Student Code of Conduct prohibits all forms of cheating, plagiarism, and academic dishonesty, including misuse of computers and passwords. Learn more about our identity verification policy.

Info for Out-of-State Students

Federal regulations require us to provide information about filing complaints with agencies or officials in your state.

If you have a complaint, you should first attempt to resolve it using complaint procedures in our student handbook. But each state also establishes its own processes for handling complaints about schools serving their students.

See this state-by-state list of complaint contacts to learn about contacts and processes for your state.
