Message from the President

Dr. Stephen Nacco, President, Danville Area Community College

Hey there, College student!

If you know what's good for you, you won't skip over my letter.

My letter has an important message for you: This catalog is our contract with you. It spells out everything you need to know to be a successful college student.

Please read and make note of the "General Information" and "Student Services" sections which outline your rights, responsibilities, and rosle as a student.

Following those sections is information on DACC's associate degree and certificate programs. This is your roadmap to your academic success at DACC. You will find the courses you need in your pursuit of a specific degree or certificate. Graduating with an associate of arts or associate of science degree at DACC will enhance your chances of transferring seamlessly to a four-year institution for a bachelor's degree. Completing all of the requirements of an associate of applied science degree or a certificate will boost your chances of entering directly into a career when you graduate.

The College's Counseling Department will help you map out a sequence of courses to achieve the degree in whichever discipline you choose to pursue. Through our university partnerships, you can earn an affordable bachelor's degree without leaving Danville by taking three years of DACC classes and a fourth year online.

Thank you for choosing to be a Danville Area Community College student and for pursuing your dream of a college education with us.


Dr. Stephen Nacco
