About the Mortgage Banking Program

How to Get Started

To get started in the Mortgage Banking program, complete the admissions process at North Lake College.

When you meet with an academic advisor, mention your interest in the Mortgage Banking program so he or she can help you determine which courses you should take.

If you are planning to earn an associate degree or certificate, please note that you must complete 25 percent of your degree requirements at the college awarding the degree.


Dallas County residents pay $156 per three-hour class — that’s $52 per credit hour, or just $624 for a full semester load of 12 credit hours.

Compare that to what you'd pay elsewhere! See our 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.

Professional Scholarships

The Dallas Mortgage Bankers Scholarship is a permanent endowment administered by the DCCCD Foundation that awards up to $450 each spring or fall semester or $250 per summer semester to students planning to major in Mortgage Banking at North Lake College. See the Dallas Mortgage Bankers Scholarship Web page for specific criteria and an application form.

Earning a Mortgage Banking associate degree or one of the program's certificates can jump-start your entry into the workforce, so that you can begin earning money right away.

However, the associate degree can also serve as a stepping stone to a four-year degree. The DCCCD has an official transfer agreement with Texas A&M University-Commerce, in which the entire Mortgage Banking associate degree transfers to its bachelor's degree of applied science, providing a minor in mortgage banking.

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 or check with the institution where you plan to earn a bachelor’s degree.
