What Makes Dallas County Community College District So Affordable?

At Dallas County Community College District, you get the same course, same learning objectives and the same quality of instruction at a better price!

How can the colleges offer the same course and charge so much less?

"Community" is key to the answer about cost at the colleges. As community colleges, the colleges of DCCCD are college for the people, funded by the people.

A portion of local property taxes collected annually by Dallas County supports the colleges. Those tax dollars, in addition to funding from the state of Texas and tuition charges, make it possible for the colleges to provide high-quality course offerings at one of the lowest tuition rates in the state.

Because state and private universities don’t have a local tax base for additional support, they must charge higher tuition rates.

As a Dallas County resident, Dallas County Community College District is your community college.

Take advantage of an affordable college education at one of the best community college systems in the country.
