Located in Thomasville, North Carolina, DCCC serves more than 5,200 students, 40 percent of whom attend full-time and 60 percent attend part-time. Seventy percent of DCCC students are white, 16 percent are Black, and 8 percent are Latino, and 56 percent of students are 24 years old or under. Fifty-eight percent receive federal Pell grants.

Nearly 75 percent of students at Davidson County Community College (DCCC) receive some type of federal, state, or local financial aid. Many rely on this assistance not only for college-related expenses but also for living expenses. Some students find it hard to make financial ends meet, leading them to drop courses, stop out of college temporarily, or disappear completely from the college’s enrollment roster.
