Health & Wellness

We offer a variety of services to meet the health and wellness needs of students, faculty and staff.

Health Centers

Dallas Colleges Online has a Health Center that promotes health, wellness and preventive care for students and staff. Registered nurses provide services including:

  • First aid for accidents, injuries and illnesses
  • Health information and brochures
  • Some over-the-counter (nonprescription) medicines such as Tylenol, aspirin and antacids
  • Referral information for community health services
  • Selected health education and screening programs
  • Confidential health counseling
  • A rest area

You don't need to be sick to come to the Health Center. Health questions and concerns are welcome.

Students with chronic health problems should visit the Health Center to discuss any special concerns with the nurse before attending classes or whenever problems arise.

No information about your health will be released without your written permission unless required by law.


Immunizations

We recommend that all prospective students have adequate immunization for bacterial meningitis, diphtheria, measles (also known as rubeola), rubella, mumps, tetanus and poliomyelitis. See the Texas Department of Health's Recommended Adult Immunization Schedule.

Health Insurance

Optional student health insurance, with optional coverage for spouse and children, is available through outside vendors. View information about health insurance vendors.

Title IX and Sexual Misconduct

DCCCD wants you to be aware of your rights under Title IX and what you can do if you feel that you have been a victim of gender-based discrimination, harassment or sexual misconduct. Learn about DCCCD's Sexual Misconduct policy and where you can report or ask questions.
