College Senior

Career Services: I'm unsure because I haven't graduated yet. Although, I know nothing about the alumni of the school and haven't had any luck with the advisors, so no help with job prospects. It could improve.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: I wish I could have been more financially stable to be able to attend a four year college. I wish I could of experienced the "college lifestyle," but that isn't what this school is about. I feel if you attend DMACC, you want to get your work done fast and then be done with it. Which, honestly, is what I want. The experience so far has been acceptable but there is definitely room for improvement.

4 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: The conveniency of DMACC is one of the things I do enjoy about this school. Whether it be online classes or classes in the center, its usually very easy. Sometimes classes clash and you're not able to be at one because it's only held all the way in Ankeny, which is extremely inconvenient. I haven't had to transfer any credits yet but I know of a few other colleges that take the credits easily.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: I've explained this answer in another question already.

2 College Senior

Overall Experience: I've went in and called numerous times to ask about different programs and different classes. I've asked about what classes would point me in the right direction if I were to want this or that. I have had only one good discussion with someone and he was the teacher. The "advisors" don't help at all and don't really care to get to know you enough to help.

College Senior

Academic Experience: Currently taking online classes and not able to interact with others in a public setting. My degree is also still "in the making" and it not specific at the moment.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: Some of the professors have been there so long, they don't care about the students- they just want a paycheck. The class registration process is one of the things that are actually a breeze and don't take hours to do. Depending on your program, the workload usually isn't too bad.The program I'm most interested in right now is the study abroad program. Which is a great program, I just wish it had other options within it and wasn't as expensive.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: I usually only take online classes. Only certain campuses have libraries, activities and sports teams. The one I attend/attended did not have any of these.

3 College Senior

Student Body: I usually do online classes and don't have a very good intake on the student body at DMACC. Although, when I did take it, you had the average "high school" groups. Very good environment for any one of any race or etc.

3 College Senior

Online Courses: I usually do online classes so I can still work my job and not have to deal with night classes. It's usually harder to connect with the teachers through online classes and sometimes difficult to understand where things are put (assignments, due now, grades). I can't tell if the teachers care at all about my success via online classes but it would be difficult to see how that would happen anyways.

4 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I don't have a lot of money but I am able to take classes due to the financial aid presented by FAFSA. I feel that I can take the classes offered and have something to my name- a degree! Sometimes the financial aid office is difficult to deal with because they're in another town, so I have to communicate mostly by telephone. Often, I'm transfered to someone on another line and they never pick up, so I'm left to redial and go through the entire process again.

Tuition & Financial Aid: I could not have gotten this far without the financial help.

5 Recent Alumnus

Academic Experience: I couldn't have asked for a better environment to learn in.

3 Recent Alumnus

Academic Experience: All of the course instructors are knowledgeable in their fields and do their best to help when they can.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Resources: I am not a big fan of people who turn their backs on you when you need them the most. However, the resources are available and there is more than one instructor.

3 Recent Alumnus

Student Body: Most of the students I attend classes with are between 18-22, which is different for a guy who is 35. I would say that most of the students are friendly, but it takes them a while to warm up to an older guy.

3 Recent Alumnus

Online Courses: I have only taken a couple of the online courses offered, because when I have a question I want to ask a real person. Personally, I do much better in a face to face environment and am clear as to the expectations and assignments.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Resources: The resources are growing at my campus. Many more campus activities, educational opportunities, and research resources.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: Right now I am finishing my liberal arts then considering human services. They have a human service program at my school however they don't have a program for art therapy, so right now I am trying to figure everything out.

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: The professors are awesome they will take the time to help you, no matter how long it is going to take, the professors really care about student success.

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: I usually am a full time student. However this summer I am only a part time.classes are somewhat flexible.

5 College Junior

Campus Resources: It's pretty much up to date and everything works properly.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: Our student center is the best place to go and get help on assignments;however it can get a little loud.

4 College Junior

Student Body: For a small campus it seems pretty big, everyone knows everyone.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: I have not took a online course yet.
