“Federal Student Aid plays a central and essential role in supporting postsecondary education by providing money for college to eligible students and families. We partner with postsecondary schools, financial institutions and others to deliver services that help students and families who are paying for college”. The Federal government’s partnerships with post secondary schools control many of the schools policies and procedures. For example the federal financial aid has developed guidelines as to when they will pay for student’s tuitions and what classes they will pay for. Therefore schools will have to alter their academic calendars and academic standards to meet the standards of the US Department of Education. DCCCD also offers a variety of technical and professional programs to compete with the other colleges in the area. DCCCD has an open door policy; Students whom do not have a high school diploma or whom are from out of the country may enroll in classes.

Some of the most popular degree plans are Nursing, Paralegal, and Culinary Arts. Students are academically prepared for college course

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
