    Honestly, the tuition doesn't do the school justice. For $71/credit hour you get excellent, professional and knowledgable teachers, cutting edge information in texts and through supplimental information provided by instructors. Many of the instructors work in the field so they are very knowledgable. Most of all, you are treated with respect, dignity, and integrity.

    Honestly, the tuition cost is fairly high for a community college. However, it can be a good value for certain programs. Durham Technical supports some programs that allow you to get a degree of certificate without needing to transfer to a university. If you are interested in physical therapy, child development, dentistry, optometry, nursing, or an IT program, Durham Technical is a better value.
