Senior Adult Programs (Emeritus)

W​hat is Emeritus?

While older adults can enroll in any of Dallas College’s 11,000 courses per semester, the Emeritus Program was designed to promote the life-long learning of our ​55+ community through a range of specific academic and personal enrichment courses that are customized just for older adults.

65+ Tuition Exemption

Dallas County residents who are 65 or older are eligible for a tuition exemption for up to 6 college credits per semester. That’s six college credits* for free, each semester**!
