Dutchess Community College is a public, 2-year institution established in the hills above Poughkeepsie, New York, with a satellite facility open in Wappingers Falls. DCC offers over 50 academic programs, which feature tuition rates lower than any other college or university in the state. Local students who have graduated high school in the top 10% of their class can receive DCC’s Conklin Scholarship, which includes tuition coverage for two full years. Approximately one-third of all college-bound students graduating from high school in the college’s regional area choose to attend DCC.
when i stood at the doors of dutchess broken and scared, the administration was waiting with open arms to take me in. when i stumbled and fell during classes, the student support services showed me my wings. when i didn't know where to go, my professors showed me how to fly.

dutchess is an excellent college that inspired me to learn, grow, and find myself. the administration and staff go above and beyond for the student body.
