Educational Gaurantee

Educational Gaurantee

DACC provides an “educational guarantee” of its programs to students and employers. The goal is to improve the quality of education being provided to students to make them more job ready and at the same time helping business and industry be competitive.

Students who complete an Associate in Applied Science degree are guaranteed that they will be properly prepared for entry into their chosen field. This guarantee ensures that the graduate will be able to demonstrate the skills expected by his or her employer. If the student is not prepared, he or she will be offered up to 12 credit hours of retraining free of charge.

To qualify, the A.A.S. degree graduate must have been employed full time in a job directly related to his/her program of study within one year after graduation from DACC. All course work for the degree must have been completed at DACC with a grade of “C” or better. The employer and student, jointly must verify in writing to DACC within 6 months of the graduate’s initial employment that the graduate lacks competency as represented by the course description information from the College catalog.
