I have been taking summer classes for the past two years, and I have had a great experience. Everyone at DMACC is extremely kind and helpful. I have had absolutely no problems with registering, taking classes, or getting my credit. Whether you’re looking to be a full-time student or part-time like myself, I would definitely recommend DMACC.

I love the help I get from teachers and their quick responses on Blackboard. Taking an online class has never been easier! I could travel and easily submit my assignments and discuss readings with students. I look forward to taking another class at DMACC.

My summer classes have been great! The teachers are extremely helpful and totally understanding when I couldn't figure out the system :-) They also send an announcement once or twice a week just to make sure everyone knew what was due and just keeping us informed.

My DMACC summer class is going great! I appreciate the flexibility I have while working at Adventureland Park. It is helping me graduate on time, and getting electives out of the way at a cheaper rate.
