Cheap school with cheap people. Something was always wrong. Every semester I found myself running around trying to get help registering because of issues with the school system, so much time wasted over such pointless problems. The staff is not helpful. They don't just know nothing about what happens in the school - they don't even know what is happening in their own department! Some professors really try though, and they made it worth it.

Overall - go there if you are poor and desperate, like me.

Class Registration Process – Registering for Daley college is a hassle. You need to get there by 7 am and they begin at 9 am. Even then, if lucky it takes half the day to get your classes. Classes run out fast so, you need to be at one of the first days in order to get the classes you need. Once your with the adviser, you soon realize they aren't really any help. They rush you on picking your classes, so they can call the next person. Overall, class registration at Daley college is a full day event!

Richard J Daley college offers a wide variety of majors, and because the classes are affordable, it makes the school look attractive to promising students. The professors are mostly excellent because they are interested in what they are teaching and are determined to have their students know the material. The professors really help the students with the curriculum when they make their syllabus available and follow it. Registering for classes is incredibly easy and priority registration is given to currently enrolled students. Daley really attempts to make sure that students are happy and transitions are smooth and easy.
