Danville Area Community College is a public two-year college located in Danville, Illinois. DACC was founded in 1946 and has grown into an independent college serving about 5,000 students per year in over 1,500 unique courses. Students at DACC are enrolled in programs and courses including: college transfer, occupational degrees and certificates, re-training, skill development, customized training or areas of special interest.
DACC is located at 2000 East Main Street in Danville, Vermilion County, Illinois.
DACC is located on an attractive 75-acre campus on the south-east side of Danville, acquired from the Veterans Administration in 1965. Several of the existing buildings, constructed around the turn of the century, were renovated; partial funding for this renovation was provided by generous public support of the Danville Junior College Foundation Drive in 1965.
Several new buildings have been constructed since then:
* Mary Miller Center and gymnasium, named for the college's first president
* Technology Center
* Bremer Conference Center and theater
* Ornamental horticulture building and greenhouse
* Operations Facility (physical plant)
* Child Development Center
Student Financial Assistance (SFA) at DACC is available in the form of scholarships, grant, loans, and part-time employment. In-depth information and counseling may be obtained from the Financial Aid Office located in the Vermilion Hall, 1st Floor, West Wing. Four full-time staff members and several part time students maintain the office and provide service to DACC students.
About 66% of the DACC student body receives some type of Student Financial Assistance (SFA) each year.
Applications are currently being accepted for scholarships offered by the Danville Area Community College Foundation. Part-time and full-time students who will be attending DACC are eligible. First-time DACC students, recent high school graduates, and current DACC students are encouraged to apply.
The DACC Foundation Scholarship Application allows students to complete one application to be considered for all available Foundation scholarships.
