It is a very good idea to go to a community college to get your undergad classes out the way. It is a lot easier on the pockets. Durham Tech is one of the Community Colleges that understands that and gives all they can to make the experience worth while. It is one of the best NC Community Colleges in its county.

    Durham Tech has truly been a joy to work with. The staff is knowledgable and the financial aid office and the college book store are secon to none when it comes to customer service and product knowledge. The school is small enough that you actually matter as a student and not just tuition dollars.

    Durham Technical Community college is a good launching point if you are interested in sciences or technology. The professors and adjunct teachers tend to be very knowledgeable. If you need to address issues the department heads and counselors are open to meet with you.

    Durham Tech is a nice place to start your journey towards the working world. The campus is nice and it's a good place to build up yourself. Overall, I would give Durham Tech a 4.5 out of a 5. If the snack machines didn't steal money, then it would be a five.

    Hi there. I am an older adult returning to school for a Nursing degree. It an intimate school compared to what I am used in Florida but I like the instructors because they actually like teaching and are very helpful in giving of their time especially if you need additional help. The school is set up so that you do not waste time taking classes you do not need. Each semester you register for school based on how many credits you have. You have an advisor and anytime you have questions, they are available to meet. Once your registration restrictions are lifted, then the system that they use to register is simple to use.

    Durham Tech offers solid academics. The teachers are very skilled and resources include tutoring and a well stocked library. They work closely with students planning to transfer to 4 year universities.

    I would rate Durham Technical Community College a 4 out of 5 because it is a widely respected school and it offers many academic opportunities. Also, it is very strict when it comes to turning assignments in on time and not accepting any late work. This school helps builds its students into being sufficient, hard-working and driven individuals ready to enter top universities.

    Durham Tech. is an excellent school dedicated to informing and helping every one of their students. Both the Orange County and Durham County campus are equally enjoyable. It is a truly exceptional school in the sense of diversity!

    Great value for the money if you plan on transferring to a larger university. If you do not plan on transferring, then you may want to go to a better college.

    Durham Tech is a great choice for people looking to save money during their college career before transferring to a four-year college. You can knock out your general education classes with great teachers for much less than at a four year university. I recommend going to this school if you are looking for a chance to go to college, but don't want to spend more than you have to on those classes that have nothing to do with your prospective career path.
