Dutchess Community College, in the beautiful mid-Hudson Valley (halfway between New York City and Albany), offers quality and value for those interested in starting a four-year degree at an acclaimed two-year school, as well as those pursuing a career track.

The college, which has one of the lowest tuition rates in the state, awards AS, AA and AAS degrees and certificates. A new, suite-style residence hall allows students to combine the benefits of a DCC education with the experience of living away at college.

DCC offers almost 60 programs in an enriching, student-centered environment. Contemporary facilities, outstanding faculty, abundant student activities and a vast artwork collection create a lively, engaging, collaborative community that fosters personal and academic growth.

Students give DCC high marks for helpful and accessible faculty and outstanding support services.

Students who graduate in the top 10% of their Dutchess County high school may attend DCC tuition-free.
