If you are doing a transfer program, can you first graduate with an associate degree (so you at least have an associate) and get your bachelor's at another school, or do you have to transfer without an associate degree and can only get the bachelor's degree.

WHAT I LIKED

Many of my experiences with my professors were overall good and they motivate me to succeed. From the professors to students they are all willing to help with any problem. What made my experience was how nice everyone was and the diversity. DMACC makes me feel safe in its environment.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

It may be hard the first time around to gain friends and the courage to take yourself up on asking others for help, but with time you learn communication plays a big role.

WHAT I LIKED

I like that it is a small, local college. Everyone is super nice and friendly and willing to meet new people. DMACC is in a good location because it is close to the living areas, many restaurants and activity spots.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

There are not any dorms or on-campus living. There are apartments available for rent close by, but it is not just limited to students living there.
