Register Now for May, Summer and Fall Credit Classes

​​​​​​Some things are just meant to be together: peanut butter and jelly ... chips and salsa ... Summer and ​Fall registration. Dallas College has combined Summer and Fall registration into a one-stop process. That makes it really convenient for you to sign up for the classes you need. Plan ahead and get your schedule set through December!

At just $79 per credit hour (or $​​237 per three-credit-hour class) for Dallas County residents, Dallas College offers​ one of the best educational bargains around. (Learn more about our tuition.)

Are you new to college? If so, start the registration process early. You must complete the application, pre-advising, assessment and advising process before you can register for classes. (Learn more about the admissions and registration process.) Also, you may need to show proof of meningitis vaccination to register.​

In Person? Onli​ne? You ​Get To Choose

We know some students are eager to get back to campus. Others prefer to stay online. While some hands-on classes must have in-person instruction, for most classes, you have options. Choose an in-person class (with COVID safety measures in place), a hybrid class (with some instruction in person and some online) or a 100% online option through​ eCampus.

Home for the Summer?

If you’ll be home from college for the summer, take a class from Dallas College and save big bucks! Why pay university tuition rates when you can get the same credit course at your neighborhood community college campus (Brookhaven, Cedar Valley, Eastfield, El Centro, Mountain View, North Lake or Richland) for just $​​237 a course for Dallas County residents?

If you already have earned credits from another college or university, here’s how to sign up to take a Summer course at Dallas College:

  1. Apply for admission. (If you have been enrolled at Dallas College in the past 12 months, you can skip this step.)
  2. Have your college or university mail your most recent official transcript to us at:
    ​Dallas College
    Attention: Admissions Processing
    3737 Motley Drive
    Mesquite, TX 75150​

    We also need the scores from all assessme​nt tests you have taken (SAT, ACT, etc.). (Note that some universities include these scores on official transcripts.)
  3. Find the courses you want to take.
  4. Regist​er. (See “How To Register” below.)

See our Summer Transfer Students page for a checklist with tips just for you.

Core classes fill up quickly, so be sure to register early to get the classes you want.

Make the Most of May

Are you a highly motivated student who can devote time to an intense, fast-paced program of study? Then consider enrolling in a May term course. This “minimester” lets you earn three or more credit hours in just a few weeks.

The May term class schedule is different for each course but typically lasts from mid-May through early June. “Maymester” course offerings may range from accounting, biology and English to blueprint reading, real estate principles and weight training — to name just a few.

Choose the Summer Term That Fits Your Schedule

Dallas Colle​ge offers three​ Summer terms: the Summer 10-week term and Summer I, which begin Thursday, June 3, and Summer II, which starts Tuesday, July 6.

Note that we also offer Flex Term classes that don’t follow the regular semester schedules.
