At the tutor lab you can raise your hand for 5 or 10 minutes until somebody sees you and if your shout out that you need help they'll get mad at you; I've been banned from coming to the tutor lab simply by using my high voice. The director of TASC Daniel Aucutt immediately band me without even hearing there or my story; it was so intense when I came to the tutor lab to even try to get help they literally escorted me out with two armed security guards holding my arms.

They have horrible service. No one ever knows what they are talking about and it is extremely hard to get in contact with them. They are also very unorganized.

Dan Reigle

My school is clean, bookstore clerks are very helpful. Teachers are superb.

I found an excellent service every day! Administration department awesome. Many people are annoying for parking, but I always find a good spot! If you have a goal and know what you want ... Definely, COD is for you!

Great community college in the desert. Has nice, new campus and several remote campuses in Palm Springs, Indio, and Desert Hot Springs as well as online classes. Worked really well for me trying to balance work, parenting, and getting my degree. Most professors are great and are there to help, even after hours. The counseling staff were also very helpful and making sure my courses fit my plan to graduate.

California higher education has gone to hell in a hand-basket. Once upon a time tuition fees at California junior colleges was capped at $50 per semester. Caps were long ago removed and it is crazy expensive to attend junior college now. In addition, California uses mandatory and assigned textbooks meaning you do not get to select your own reading materials and you will be an arm and a leg for your textbooks since this system basically grants the publishers a monopoly and the right to charge you whatever they want. California uses the 'general education' system, which is basically a way to charge you for 2 to 3 years worth of class tuition for a bunch of units/credits that have absolutely or nearly nothing to do with your major. Leaving you only two years of upper division at a university dedicated to your actual major subject. For example, if you wanted to be an engineer you will need to take psychology, humanities, arts, physical education and a bunch of useless classes which are very expensive and do not go very far in educating you in your chosen career path. The 'Liberal to Conservative' teacher ratio is way out of whack. So if you chose to be educated in California, that education, if you can call it that, will be heavily biased and almost entirely liberal with no conservative points of view provided. Therefore, you will not be taught to think. You will be taught to regurgitate or to mimic. ie you will be trained not taught to think. If you want to be a thinker look elsewhere than California for higher education (and/or lower education).

I worked for COD for many years and would not recommend it unless you like politics. Its run more like the mob than anything else and how they waist are tax dollars is shocking. Don't vote for any bond measures giving them more money!

Hard to pass science classes here. Instructions teach at a university/ med school level instead of community college level. Also hard to get into the RN program as well

James DeMatteo

No one picks up the phone and if they do contact you through the email they act like your little kid and give you an oblivious answer that doesn't fix the problem.

jamela Noor

Amazing..... just call to ask about their undergrad program, and the person in admission has no clue ..if they have the program...?...what a joke , she was not able to answer my question, and had no clue about their programs, and finally forward my call to their counseling staff... Waht !!!!!..lolllll hahah

Amazing resource! COD offers a wide array of courses and, most importantly, is closely interconnected with the University of California system. They provide academic advisory services for both near term and long term goals.

Raul Martinez

Amazing community college every staff member is super helpful and respectful.also it is quite beautiful campus


Staff are uninformed and very rude, called the FAFSA office for information a woman named Vanessa picked up the phone she kept cutting me off and evading questions by trying to get me to look up the information instead of being helpful because per usual employees here are very lazy. If you call or need info you have to force them.
