Getting Started With Economics

Complete the admissions process and meet with an academic advisor at the college you plan to attend.

Tuition

Dallas County residents pay $177 per three-hour class — that is $59 per credit hour, or just $708 for a full-semester load of 12 credit hours. Compare that to what you'd pay elsewhere! See tuition rates for tuition according to your place of residency. 

Rising Star Program

If you are a Dallas County high school graduating senior, you may qualify for Rising Star funds to help pay for this program. The Rising Star program offers academic support services and up to $4,000 for tuition and books, if you have established financial need.

Transfer Information

If you are interested in earning a degree at a four-year institution, please visit the Transfer Services website for guidance on the transfer process. Many articulation (transfer) agreements are in place with four-year colleges and universities to streamline your transfer experience.

It's Texas state law that students who complete the DCCCD Core Curriculum with at least a 2.0 GPA are guaranteed that their courses will transfer as a block of credit to any Texas public college or university. Individual Core courses must be accepted as well by the transfer institution.  Find out more about the Core Curriculum of the colleges of DCCCD.
