Student Wellness and Support


At Dallas College, we don’t just care about the student, we care about the whole person. Here are some of the ways we help our students succeed inside and outside the classroom.

Tutoring and Learning Support

Dallas College students can access a variety of services designed to support their educational goals, including tutoring, accessibility services, device loans, specialized programs to support specific student populations and more.

Student Care Network

The Student Care Network is a holistic network of services and resources to help students meet all their needs. Our student care coordinators are at the center of the Student Care Network, connecting students to mental health counselors, nurses and other staff on our campuses who are knowledgeable in basic needs and student wellbeing. The coordinators can also put students in touch with outside services to help them meet financial challenges such as child care, food, clothing, rental assistance, school supply needs and more.

Food Pantries

According to the North Texas Food Bank, one in six North Texans don’t know where they will find their next meal. In addition to food pantries on campus, Dallas College partners with the North Texas Food Bank to provide a drive-thru pantry that delivers fresh produce to each campus.

Free Public Transit Passes

Eligible Dallas College students can ride DART for free with the DART Student Pass. Features include paratransit options as well as GoLink — an on-demand ride service.

Clothing Closet

Dallas College operates free clothing closets on campus. These clothing resources support students who are looking to get a new job, succeed in school and/or provide for their children. We know that clothing our students also helps them to maintain a healthy and hygienic life.

Device Loans

Students can rent hotspots and laptops from our libraries as a learning resource and for academic support. Device loans are available on a first-come, first-served basis each semester.

Child Care

The Working Wonders Program at Dallas College pays 100% of child care costs for eligible students pursuing an Associate of Applied Science degree or certificate in a technical/occupational program. Child Care is also available on campus at our Brookhaven and Eastfield campuses. The Cedar Valley and Mountain View campuses will host Montessori-inspired preschools on campus beginning in Fall 2022.

Fitness Centers

Each of our campuses is equipped with a fitness center where students can exercise or enjoy one of our many physical education classes.
