Welcome to Dawson Community College’s Online Education page. Online courses at Dawson Community College are designed and developed in accordance with best practices to emphasize communication, collaboration, and engagement.
Whether you're seeking to complete your degree fully online or transfer to a four-year institution, DCC Online offers quality programs tailored to your needs. Our online programs include:
For a non degree-seeking student, Dawson Community College offers a large catalog of courses to choose from. Navigate to our Class Schedule Page for a full list of online and on-campus courses.
DCC Online has partnered with CCCOnline to provide students with a variety of online course options available in different sessions. Through DCC Online, you can take courses in 15-week, 10-week, or accelerated 6-week sessions to fit your schedule. CCCOnline is part of the Colorado Community College system and provides online courses to 13 other community colleges in Colorado.
CCCOnline partnership classes are not eligible for DCC payment plans. DCC Online classes must be paid in full, upfront by the last day to pay for each specific session, or students will be dropped. If students have incoming aid or an in-process consortium agreement with their home college, they are encouraged to communicate progress with the online specialist.
CCCOnline partnership classes do not count toward the "any amount of credits above 15 is free" credit policy we have for on-campus and Moodle classes. These are billed separately and in addition to the on-campus and Moodle classes. These classes are not eligible for student waivers.
DCC Moodle courses for dual enrollment students cost half the tuition rate with no applicable course fees.
DCC Moodle classes are courses that are developed and taught by faculty members of Dawson Community College. These courses will be offered through the online learning platform Moodle. You will receive an email with your Moodle login information from Online Specialist, Courtney Wuethrich, who you may contact with any questions at email@example.com.
In addition to the DCC Moodle courses, students can also take DCC Online courses, which are taught through our partnership with Colorado Community College Online (CCCOnline.) Although these courses are taught by CCCOnline instructors, you will receive credit from DCC. DCC Online courses will be offered through the online learning platform Desire to Learn (D2L.) You will receive an email from firstname.lastname@example.org with your DCC Online login information.
DCC Online offers a variety of CCCOnline partnership courses at a flat rate fee of $231.75 per credit, plus a $37.50 non-refundable handling fee. Please note that this fee does not include textbooks and other required course materials. However, each course includes a $76 digital content fee, which provides you with a digital textbook for the course, eliminating the need for a physical textbook. For further details, please contact our Online Specialist.
It's important to note that DCC Online classes are not eligible for payment plans, and the full payment must be made before the last day to pay for each session. Failure to make full payment by the deadline will result in the student being dropped from the course.
