Continuing Hazlewood Students

Anyone who used Texas Hazlewood benefits at Dallas College without a break is considered a continuing student. (If you took a break and did not attend the previous spring or fall term, you are considered a returning student for Hazlewood benefits).

  1. Gather the documents below and have them ready to upload electronically.
    • Hazlewood Act Exemption Application for Continuing – Download current application from the Texas Veterans Commission (TVC) Hazlewood website, complete and sign. Review documentation requirements and have them ready to submit.
    • Hazlewood Student Hours Report – Required each term for all Hazlewood benefits.
      *For Legacy students BOTH the veteran’s and the student’s hours must be submitted.
    • Dallas College Registration Summary (eConnect - login required) – Submit every semester in which you want to claim your education benefits.
    • Program of Study (POS) – In order to calculate required Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP), veterans and Legacy students must select a program of study in eConnect under the Financial Aid heading. For Legacy students, ALL classes must be required by the POS. Students using the spouse and dependent benefits are not required to designate a POS.
    • Proof of Age – (Hazlewood Legacy only) Must be 25 years old or younger on the first day of the semester or term.
