Kayley - Linnville/Sully
I plan on attending a 4-year university after DMACC, and DMACC offered the classes I needed to transfer and was small enough to help adjust from a small town school. DMACC offers various tutoring and opportunities to excel. Boone has band and sports so I can continue growing my talents and feel at home. The price for such quality courses makes DMACC completely worth it whether its just getting my associates or the transfer plan to a 4-year college.

I chose DMACC because the class sizes are smaller and allows opportunity to have a closer relationship with the teachers. It is also more affordable for me to start my college career. When I first started at DMACC, I was unsure what I wanted to do, DMACC helped me figure out what I was meant to do! I thank DMACC for being so helpful and welcoming!
Kaylin - Ankeny High School
I chose DMACC because it will set me up nicely to transfer into a 4-year college. Since DMACC is a well-respected community college, it gave me a chance to see if I can handle being a student athlete in college and it also kept me close to home for a little bit longer, which I enjoy.
Vilu - Southeast Polk High School
I chose to start off at DMACC because it was close to home, low-cost tuition and the small classroom size environment. The teachers are great and are always willingly helpful to the students. Going to DMACC gave me the opportunity to work full-time and still be a student while making it flexible and also balancing out my personal life.
Abdul - Waukee High School
I choose DMACC because it has campuses all over Central Iowa, which is convenient when I choose to stay close to home. After graduating high school, I still had uncertainty in what I wanted to do and DMACC gave me more clarity in the path I’m heading. Saving money was also a big factor.
Lucas - Central DeWitt High School
I chose DMACC over all other options because of the teachers. I was able to talk to the director of the graphic design program before starting. The way he handled himself and how much he believed in the program is what told me to come to DMACC. Plus, DMACC is the perfect size for me. I come from a small town, so I didn’t want to go to a huge college. DMACC is the perfect size, its not too big but on the other side, it’s not too small either.
