Dr. Stephen Nacco, President, Danville Area Community College

Welcome to DACC!

I am pleased to present Danville Area Community College’s 2020-21 Catalog.

This Catalog represents our contract with you, our student. If you are new to the College, all of the information contained in this Catalog will pertain to you for as long as you remain continuously enrolled here.

As you will see, the Catalog provides details on how you can be a successful student at DACC. Please read and make note of the “General Information” and “Student Services” sections which outline your rights, responsibilities, and role as a student.

Following those sections is information on DACC’s associate degree and certifi cate programs. This is your roadmap to your academic success at DACC. You will find the courses you need in your pursuit of a specifi c 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.

Please remember that if you are new to DACC, this is your catalog. All of the program information applies to you. For those of you who are returning students but have been away from the College for one semester or more, this Catalog is also your blueprint to success.

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