Dallas College Health Services promotes and provides health, wellness and preventative care to meet the needs of college students, employees and the communities it serves.

Health Services at Dallas College campuses are provided by registered nurses licensed by the Texas Board of Nursing and subject to the Texas Nursing Practice Act and American College Health Association guidelines.

In the event medication and/or treatment services are required, Dallas College Health Services may provide such treatment under orders from a contracted medical provider.

Health services are offered collegewide and are available at all campuses.


Get the flu shot, not the flu! Free flu shots now available to students in the Health Center.
