Why Dallas College

Together, our seven campuses equip students for success. They also provide economic benefits to businesses, taxpayers and the community.

As one of the largest community college districts in the state, our schools impact more students than a traditional four-year school. Our relationships with employers and the community allow us to remain agile and responsive to community needs.
