Registration

The registration process is different depending on the type of classes you want to take.

See our Continuing Education Registration page if you want to sign up for our noncredit classes to improve your job skills or for personal enrichment.


Registering for Credit Classes

After you have completed the application, orientation, assessment and advisement process, you can register for credit classes in one of two ways:

1. In person

Visit the Admissions/Registrar’s Office at the college you plan to attend.

If you are new to the colleges of DCCCD, we strongly recommend that you register in person so you can get information about course prerequisites, the degrees we offer, the Texas Success Initiative (TSI), tuition and other important topics.

2. Online

For online registration requirements, visit eConnect.

Before you register, check our class schedules to see the credit courses offered for the upcoming term.


Registration Dates

Registration for Winter and Spring credit classes begins in November:

  • Priority registration (for returning students) begins Tuesday, Nov. 18, and continues through Sunday, Nov. 23.
  • Regular registration (for all students) starts Monday, Nov. 24. You can register for a Winter term class up until the first class meeting. The last day to register for Spring classes is Wednesday, Jan. 14, 2015.

Bacterial Meningitis Vaccination

You may need to provide proof of meningitis vaccination to register.


No Late Registration

Students can no longer register late for regular semester-length credit classes. (The last day of registration varies by semester.) So be sure to register early!


Stop Before You Drop

Under Texas law (TEC Section 51.907), if you drop too many classes without having an acceptable reason, your GPA could be affected. Be sure you understand how this law may affect you before you drop a class.

This law applies to students who enroll in a Texas public institution of higher education (including the colleges of DCCCD) for the first time in fall 2007 or later. Under this law, you may not drop more than six classes without an acceptable reason during your entire undergraduate career without penalty. For more information, please see our catalog or read Facts About Dropping Classes.
