2017 Student Success Scorecard

Diablo Valley College

Diablo Valley College (DVC) began offering courses in 1949 in some of the most unlikely sites: high schools, banks, churches and even an old army camp. Today, the college’s student body reflects the growing multiculturalism and diversity found in California. DVC’s main campus is off Interstate 680 in Pleasant Hill near Mt. Diablo, a Northern California landmark. It is the college of choice for many students from the private and public high schools in nearby Martinez, Mt. Diablo, San Ramon and Acalanes school districts.
