Military Education Benefits and IncludEd

A portion of Dallas College tuition ($20 per credit hour) covers the cost of textbooks and learning materials through IncludED. Certain military-connected tuition benefits (including Chapter 33, Hazlewood and Military TA) do not cover this portion. This portion of tuition is not required of all students and is therefore not covered by state or federal military/VA education benefits. Students are responsible to either opt out of the D program or pay the amount associated with learning materials prior to the start of the next registration period. An outstanding balance, not covered by benefits, may affect the ability to register, obtain transcripts or complete other college processes.

To ask questions or learn additional details, contact your campus Veterans Services Office or Dallas College Military-Connected Services at

Going back to college was another challenge for myself though. I was in college for a semester before I joined the military and it had been 7 years since I had taken college course. This made it challenging to take on school again. ” Read Favian's story.
