College Express students do well in their college coursework and are more likely to complete associate degrees after high school. More than 90 percent of College Express students receive a grade of C or better in their classes. While 42 percent of recent area high school graduates enroll at DACC, 52 percent of graduates who have completed at least two semesters of College Express classes enroll at DACC. Some students have gone directly into the workforce as a result of their College Express coursework. Because of this partnership, it is no longer necessary to duplicate equipment and lab facilities at secondary and postsecondary sites.
