Upon completion of the DARC program, most students begin working as addictions counselors. Many are hired by their internship site. While students are working, accruing the hours necessary to sit for the certification exam, many continue their education in bachelor degree programs.
Gateway Community College graduates can transfer as juniors, with all 60 credits, to any of the Connecticut State Universities.
The DARC program has articulation agreements with the following colleges and universities; Charter Oak State College (Applied Behavioral Science: Psychology and Applied Behavioral Science: Sociology), University of Bridgeport (IDEAL Program - Accelerated Learning, Human Services), University of New Haven (Criminal Justice and Human Services) and Western Connecticut State University (Justice and Law Administration). At these institutions all 60 Gateway Community College credits (with a C or better) will transfer directly into these programs of study.
