Accomplishments and Success Stories

Since we opened our doors in 1949, more than 1.5 million students have matriculated and graduated from Diablo Valley College. That represents a collective student body approximately 50% larger than the current population of Contra Costa County.

DVC is so much more than a community college because Diablo Valley College:
  • Has become a highly regarded pipeline of students into University of California system. 
  • Has led the state of California in transfer students to four-year institutions, including California State Universities and other colleges nationwide
  • Has a transfer rate of 67%, which is higher than the national average. 
  • Ranks #1 in transfers among all California community colleges.

There are literally more than a million success stories among our great many alumni. We’ve selected a handful of their accomplishments to share with you below.

During 2015-16, the DVC Foundation contributed $1.2 million dollars, $200,000 in student scholarships, $100,000 in Student-Focused Programs and has over 25 President’s Roundtable Members.
