To succeed at Durham Tech and have a positive college experience, its best to check into all aspects: be organized and register in person early, check the instructors, classroom, time of day! ahead...the college is all about contrast: exceptional faculty who do their best every class, as well as lousy ones - same for staff...some are downright rude, racist, and uneducated, then you talk to one who is the opposite. Unfortunately, many classes are taught by part-time faculty who are not paid extra for office hours. Full-time faculty have few office hours posted, ...you will have to be assertive if this person is not there by reporting it, because there is little hands on supervision of faculty.

First, the good-
Good teachers, a solid education, warm student body. I transfered to UNC with relative ease.

The bad-
Administratively they are the worst mess that I have ever seen. I tried for 6 months (that is not an exaggeration) to get signed up for the GI Bill. Every single time I went in, I was told that the GI person was out _____ (sick, vacation, training, a conference, lunch, etc). I seriously began to wonder if they had a GI rep. I split time at CCCC and ended up spending 15 minutes with their rep and getting the GI bill. This was honestly 6 months (Feb- Aug) after I had initially attempted to sign up. UNC was about 2 emails and a form and I was signed up.

-Lost my transcripts. I transfered in a ton of credits. My final semester there, my counselor congratulates me; I only need to take the capstone course and I have my associates. I take the course, fill out the graduation form, and apply to UNC. I never hear back from DT. I go in and they have none of my credits in their system and I can't graduate unless I resend everything. The lady who I talked to was dismissive and did not seem like she could have cared any less.

- Never sent my transcript or community standards form to UNC. I kept getting reminders from UNC that I would be un-enrolled if I did not complete my admission requirements. I check and of course, DT had never sent them. Every other school had sent them, but not DT. I had to go in again, pay again, and hand deliver them to UNC because I could not trust that they would send them.

Had it been one or two things, I would have written it off. Stuff happens and things get lost in the shuffle. I understand that. But DT is systemically inept. By the end of my time there, I expected to have to follow up on anything that I did administratively. If I submitted a form, I needed to go in in 2 weeks and check on it. There was about a 30% chance I would need to resubmit it.

Bottom line- Decent education just check and recheck everything that you do administratively. After orientation, check back and make certain that you are a student, after sending your transcripts, make certain that they have entered them into their system, after submitting any form, check back and make certain that they have it, etc.

I took two transfer classes at Durham Technical Community College. (Spanish II & Psychology) The classes were very Informative and helpful. The Spanish Professor was extremely tough, but this is what I needed to excel.

I have gained so much knowledge through this school. It helped prepare me for a rewarding career b/c of the caring teachers and clinical-job experience that the school provides. I have graduated and realize that I have a very good foundation.

This school is very affordable for the young and the older students. The class are small and times are flexiable. I was enrolled in their electronic engineering degree program and the teachers were great.
