    depending on your major, some courses may only be offered during some semesters. this is especially true for engineering and computer science majors (these are just the two i know for sure- there are most likely other majors with specific course offerings). however, if you go on the college website and search your course on the search bar, there is an option to look at the course offerings for the past semesters. if you don't see an option for the spring 2015 semester, and only see fall semesters listed, it's safe to assume that that course is only offered in the fall. also, take your placement exams seriously. far too many students flunk their entrance exams and are placed into the lowest math and english. if you're an older student returning to school after sometime, it may be in your best interest to do some review prior to the exam (or just let dcc place you and take the courses- sometimes this is best). overall though, if you're right out of highschool and have taken pre-calc, then do your best on the exam- ideally, you should be placed into calc 1 or pre-calc!

    Do not attend the nursing program. Mrs. Grutzner is the head of the department and she manipulates the tests via computerized alga rhythms to control the passing rate in the program. If you still choose to attend ask her what the last graduating classes GPA was and also ask her how many students the graduating class started out as at the beginning of the program and I can guarantee you will choose another school to attend.

    What some people forget to realize is that it's a two year school. Not a four year university. This is the greatest place to complete all your general education requirements especially if you plan on continuing to a four year SUNY school. It's also great for people who don't have a clue what they want to do. I started off as General Studies major and after I took Concert Choir it helped me realize I want to be involved in Music. It definitely guides you when you've had little to no guidance your entire life, and if you're on a budget.

    Don't expect to just get by, and don't come here if you hate school but think that you need to go to college. Enroll in a vocational program if you hate school, but still want to do well in life. Or start a business. Just don't waste thousands of dollars to go here if you aren't serious.
