DMACC Guarantees Fall Term Classes

Posted 5/11/2020

​Full Refunds will Be Made if the College Cancels Classes

  • Should DMACC cancel a fall term class due to COVID-19 or for any other reason, DMACC guarantees students will receive a full refund.

  • This guarantee applies to all students taking in person or online classes at any of DMACC’s six campuses or six centers.

  • DMACC President Rob Denson guarantees refunds will be given with no questions asked if fall classes are canceled.​​

Should DMACC cancel classes due to COVID-19 or for any other reason, the College guarantees students will receive a full refund.

“We wanted to eliminate the risk and concern that students have about pursuing their education in these uncertain times,” said Rob Denson, DMACC President. “The refund will be given with no questions asked should DMACC cancel a class. The education and peace of mind of all of our students is our only priority.

“In some instances we may have to modify how a class is taught, but we will do everything that we can to see it through to completion. If the class has to be canceled, we will refund the tuition. DMACC is here for our students, always. That’s guaranteed.”

DMACC’s tuition, which is set by the DMACC Board of Trustees, is the lowest among Iowa’s community colleges, as well as four-year public and private colleges and universities in the state. If a student decides to drop a class, there is a formal process that is required to request a refund.        

DMACC has campuses in Ankeny, Boone, Carroll, Newton, Des Moines (Urban Campus) and West Des Moines, as well as centers in Ames, Perry, at the DMACC Capitol Center (Des Moines), Southridge (Des Moines), the Evelyn K. Davis Center for Working Families (Des Moines) and the DMACC Transportation Institute (Des Moines).

The DMACC fall semester starts August 26.
