About Dallas College

Since 1965, Dallas College, formerly known as the Dallas County Community College District (DCCCD) has served more than three (3) million students. Dallas College is one of the largest community college systems in the state of Texas, which includes seven campus locations around the Dallas/Fort Worth area and strives to be a leader in the Community College space, placing students at the center of everything they do.

Dallas College serves more than 100,000 credit and continuing education students offering 300+ academic and technical degrees and over 100 high-demand career programs and training.

In June 2020, the Southern Association of Colleges, and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) approved the district’s plan to unify as a single institution, Dallas College. The new Dallas College encompasses Brookhaven, Cedar Valley, Eastfield, El Centro, Mountain View, North Lake, and Richland, which are now referred to as campuses instead of colleges.

By approving a comprehensive application detailing concrete steps on how the district would consolidate its colleges to better serve students, SACSCOC also granted the district a “level change,” allowing what is now Dallas College to offer a Bachelor of Applied Science in Early Childhood Education and Teaching, the first four-year degree offered by the institution. Dallas College is also exploring opportunities to provide other four-year degrees in accordance with authorizing legislation enacted by the Texas Legislature.
