How do I get signed up for classes?
We ask all individuals to set an appointment to meet with the Admissions Dept to get the process started. In most cases, we can have an interested individual ready to start classes with just 2 short visits that take about an hour and a half each.
Are the credits earned from DCI transferable?
Students do earn post secondary credits and college clock hours for their time completed at DCI, but it is entirely up to the school you attend next and what they will accept to transfer for you. They will make that determination based on several factors including but not limited to grades, how long ago you attended school, curriculum, etc. The school you attend should consider the credits earned from DCI transferable.
How big are the classes?
DCI prides itself on smaller class sizes and personal attention. The student to teacher ratio will not exceed 20:1 for labs and the massage therapy ratio is just 15:1.
Do you have a Placement/Career Services Department?
Yes, we do. Our Career Services Department will work with you throughout the program and will spend 13 days working directly with you prior to your externship. Upon completion of your externship they will continue to work with you as long as you maintain contact with them.
What does it cost to attend DCI?
How will I pay for school?
We do offer financial aid to anybody who qualifies. Financial Aid could consist of grants, scholarships and loans. Grants would be money awarded to a student based on need that isn’t required to be paid back. Scholarships would be monies awarded to a student usually recognizing an outstanding achievement on their part, that also isn’t required to be paid back. Loans are money awarded to a student that MUST be repaid.
How can I find out about Financial Aid?
Each person who visits the school is given the opportunity to sit down with somebody in Financial Aid to discuss any aid that they may be eligible for. You may then be directed to complete a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) to determine your eligibility for Federal student aid (grants & loans).
**Please remember that when you sit down with somebody in Financial Aid, it is a no obligation meeting designed to give you a better idea of how you will pay for your education.**
