    You only pay for the classes you take. Tuition is literally just your classes' prices added up. (Plus whatever books you might buy/rent - and I recommend renting.) And the classes and degree are transferrable, so that's a lot of money saved compared to if you went to a university first. There's so much there for you to use, and it's all free. You actually don't even have to be a student for a lot of it! Definitely worth the cost.

    You cannot beat the cost of tuition and books for two years of college and an Associates degree. COD works with a ton of colleges nation-wide to make sure classes transfer. You can get all your requirements done for a fraction of the cost of a four year college and then when you transfer. Pay for the classes that you WANT TO SPECIALIZE in. You cannot beat that with a stick! The thought of coming out of college with little to no debt, even after a four year degree is a huge deal. There are too many of us that come out of college owing thousands of dollars!! How do you get ahead? COD is the answer. We are luck to have such a great resource in our area.

    Great choice for acquiring an associate's degree. This is a very reputable college and is super inexpensive. Highly recommend going here and then transferring- especially if you're undecided!

    Very cost effective and lots of options for classes for a community college. If you compare COD to other community colleges you find that they really don't offer as much as COD.
