Welcome to Danville Area Community College.

With nationally recognized faculty and innovative, technologically advanced programs and facilities, DACC offers more than 100 career and transfer programs that lead to a certificate or degree within three academic divisions: Math and Science; Liberal Arts; and Business and Technology.

DACC offers endless opportunities to students of any age. The average age of students is 28 years old. More than 40 percent of recent area high school graduates and more than 30 percent of recent area high school honors graduates attend DACC annually.

More than 50% of students at DACC are enrolled in a transfer program that will lead to a bachelor’s degree. DACC has agreements in place with many regional universities to facilitate the transfer of credits. Students pursuing a bachelor’s degree will save nearly $30,000 by completing the first two years of coursework at DACC.

DACC is a leader in career education offering down-state Illinois’ first Wind Energy program and the state’s first NIMS-certified manufacturing program. Most career programs lead to an associate degree following two years of full-time study. Many of these programs also offer short-term certificate options. DACC participates in 2 + 2 agreements that allow students pursuing a career degree in select programs to transfer those credits to a four-year institution to complete a Bachelor’s degree.

Developmental Education courses are available for those who wish to improve math, reading, or rhetoric skills, or who need more preparation for college-level work. Adult Education conducts GED and Basic Education courses for high school completion, and English as a Second Language to improve skills for non-native speakers. The Certified Nurse Assistant program offers low-cost, short-term health care training leading to a high demand career.

Finally, Corporate and Community Education offers customized corporate training services and non-credit courses for community members who are seeking new knowledge, experiences, and skills in non-academic areas.
