This school is hit or miss. Every department, counselor, or class interaction is great or a total disaster. Once a counselor told me to drop a class because I did not need that particular class. Then the next time I was told I needed the class & lost $1,000 right there. Some teachers are great! They expect you to come to class & actually teach you what you need to know. Then after some hard work & study time put in they where always available via email or office hours. This worked great & an A was attainable based on the effort. Other teachers just give vague information or don't teach at all & tell you to just read the book & whatever you don't understand ask, but then never answered emails or kept changing office hours or never showed up.

I am so glad I chose to attend College of DuPage. It is affordable and all the programs are absolutely amazing from what I hear. I have had amazing opportunities in this first semester-- I made it into the top choir, and performed in the first play I tried out for, where I met some really great people who are so talented. I love how there is no barrier between age groups, as the range is so wide, and everyone is expected and encouraged to be their absolute best. Teachers make sure students are learning material, and there is tutoring available and all sorts of help facilities. I feel CoD is a great transition from high school to a university, and regardless of major, I highly reccomend it!

I applied to College of DuPage (COD) to take a cake decorating class. Soon after enrolling, I was required to buy a chef's uniform (despite not being a culinary major), shoes, a kit that the professor wanted is to use (from a third party), along with the class and lab fees which were associated. Spending close to$1000 for one class, I began having second thoughts (What else could come up)? After my second class, I had to drop due to outside occurring events. Attending only two classes out of 15 (Labor Day during16-week course), I applied for a tuition appeal. In the mean time, COD continued withdrawing money from my account to pay for the class. When I found out that my tuition appeal was accepted, I unfortunately found out I was only "awarded" half of the class fees alone. Additionally, at one point I updated my account for charges to come out of a different account, however charges continued to come out of the original account.
