Advantages of DCC online classes

Lower total costs:
With the costs of your college education soaring, time and money are major considerations for deciding if a degree will pay off in the long run. All our textbooks are included. Our programs do not require students to take electives. This allows students to focus on their subject of choice and receive the education they need without having to spend time or money unnecessary classes. Relocating to a different region for a traditional college program is costly and time-consuming.

No hectic commutes.
Our courses can help cut down or eliminate costs of commuting, babysitting, housing and other expenses incurred by attending classes in a traditional setting. Many students also find that the amount they save on fuel costs can be substantial if they don’t have to commute to a physical campus in general, no matter what the weather conditions may be.

Choice
Enroll in your program of choice – regardless of where you are.  DCC courses allow students to choose from a wide variety programs not available in their area. Many of our students access our classes from places where it is difficult to access top quality design education.

Greater Access to Better Expertise:
All of our courses are taught by experts with considerable field experience presenting professionally relevant coursework that’s highly applicable to your field of study. Our education is accessible anywhere on earth. Highly specialized design education is able to reach more people. Our courses are better organized than traditional courses.

More interaction with the professor
Join chat sessions where only a handful of students are present, giving you more opportunities to ask questions, clarify points in the lecture and add depth to your knowledge of the materials presented. DCC Online courses offer introverted students the opportunity to participate in class discussions or chats with more ease than face-to-face classes. Students may feel more comfortable talking openly with their teachers through online chats, emails, and newsgroup discussions rather than face-to-face.

Flexibility and Accessibility
