Anyone who is financially savy and understands how to play the "college" game. Someone who doesn't want to go into $50,000 worth of debt when they could easily cut it in half.


A person who is dedicated and hard-working towards their goals. They know that things in life don't usually come free and that you need to work hard for what you want and to get to where you want to be.


I think anyone should attend because you get the same training as going to a four year college.




Peopl who like smaller classes and lower tution should attend this school.


People that aren't sure what they want to do, or who would prefer to save money by attending a cheaper college. DMACC has a great interschool program that allows students to transfer to other schools in the area, including Drake and ISU. People wanting a degree without the high price tag fit in well, especially those that work full time.
