Register for Classes

As of June 1, our campuses are fully open for students and the general public.

We have returned to normal instruction, including face-to-face, online and hybrid course options. Additionally, Dallas College no longer requires masks to be worn at any of our locations, but we welcome anyone who chooses to wear one. Get the latest updates about our COVID-19 response.

Students are able to make online appointments to meet with advisors, tutoring services and other college departments.

Bacterial Meningitis Vaccination

You may need to provide proof of meningitis vaccination to register.

Stop Before You Drop

Under Texas law (TEC Section 51.907), if you drop too many classes without having an acceptable reason, your GPA could be affected. Be sure you understand how this law may affect you before you drop a class.

This law applies to students who enroll in a Texas public institution of higher education (including Dallas College) for the first time in fall 2007 or later. Under this law, you may not drop more than six classes without an acceptable reason during your entire undergraduate career without penalty.
