Frequently Asked Questions

Tuition (per credit hour) $488
Class Fee (per course) $95
What credits will transfer to DCC?

You can transfer a number of credits from other accredited colleges to the DCC FLEXCampus™ program. You must have received at least a “C” in the class in order to transfer it. Check with your academic advisor to find out more about transferring hours.

What credits will transfer from DCC to other colleges?

Other colleges will have a standard that they use to accept credits much like DCC, which requires a grade of “C” or above. Credits for Bible and theology classes typically do not transfer to non-Christian colleges, or will only transfer as electives. DCC has had many students transfer in and out of Texas with no issues on credits being accepted. However, if you have a question, contact the college you are interested in and ask.

How are the classes conducted?

In class, you will interact and participate along with other students in a formal classroom setting.

For online participation, you will have a live link to the class and be able to participate as you would if you were physically in the classroom.

After the class session, students interact through an Internet-based platform called Moodle.

A computer purchased new in the last 2-3 years probably meets these requirements.

  • Software
    • Students need to have Microsoft Office 2007 or later. It is possible to use an alternative to Microsoft Office, but all assignments must be submitted in Office format: e.g. .docx or .pptx. Students must also be able to open Office files and read the comments inserted by instructors. OpenOffice provides a free alternative for Word and PowerPoint and meets these requirements.
    • Students purchase Logos Bible Study software as a resource for “How to Study the Bible.” It is part of the required resources, so it can be purchased with financial aid funds if necessary. It is available for Windows and Macintosh.
  • Other:
      • High-speed internet connection is required
      • Internet conferencing equipment is required:
        • Good quality webcam* with a microphone built in and a set of headphones/earbuds

    OR

        • Good quality webcam* (no microphone) and a headset**

    *The DCC Virtual Bookstore stocks the LogiTech HD 720p Video Calling Web Cam to allow students to purchase this webcam with financial aid.
    **Using a headset is the preferred method. It reduces background noise and echo.

 

How do I submit assignments?

Students submit assignments via Moodle. Each course has its own Moodle site where FLEXCampus™ students submit assignments, post discussions, etc.

When can I get started?

FLEXCampus™ students typically begin classes within 7 weeks of applying. We have start dates every 6 weeks.

How long does it take to finish the degree program?

Some students can complete their college education in as little as two years. It depends on two things personal to each student:

  • How many previous college credits can transfer to your chosen degree program: The registrar examines your official college transcripts (as well as military DD214) to create a transcript evaluation. This shows you what classes you need to complete your degree.
  • How much time do you have to dedicate each week to taking classes: Students spend 18-20 hours per week completing each online course. If you can take two courses simultaneously and take classes during the summer, you can complete your degree more quickly.

EARNING ALTERNATIVE CREDIT


A student can earn additional semester hours through the Credit for Demonstrated Competency (CDC) process or credit by examination. A maximum of 30 hours may be earned through these alternative methods. All alternative credit must be completed prior to registration of the final semester.

CREDIT FOR DEMONSTRATED COMPETENCY (CDC)

In the Credit for Demonstrated Competency process, the student prepares a portfolio documenting work experiences and the learning that has resulted from these experiences. These credits can be earned from many different sources, including workshops, seminars, independent study, noncredit classes, training programs, and work experiences. It is the learning, and not merely experience from these sources, that is evaluated and warrants the awarding of credit. In the admission process, a CDC advisor will provide the student with an estimate of the number of CDC credits he or she might receive through this process. A non-refundable fee is required at the time of application for Credit for Demonstrated Competency.

 

CREDIT BY EXAMINATION

DCC accepts five examinations by which a student may earn credit in addition to the courses and the CDC process. These are:

  • College Level Examination Program (CLEP)—a national set of exams on selected topics offered on a regular schedule (testing available off campus only)
  • Defense Activity for Traditional Educational Support (DANTES) – a national set of exams developed by the military and covering college introductory courses in 50 different subject areas (DCC is a DANTES test site.)
  • Advanced Placement (AP) Examinations – a national set of exams on selected college-level topics studied at the high school (testing available off campus only)
  • International Baccalaureate (IB) Higher-Level Examinations – An international set of exams on selected topics studied through the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program (testing available off campus only)
  • DCC institutional challenge exam.
