The Six Steps to Enrollment

Enrollment at Dallas College is only six steps away!

1. Applying for College

New-to-college students must complete an application for admission to Dallas College.

2. Pre-Advising

The pre-advising steps will allow an admissions enrollment representative to connect you to online tools and campus resources.

3. Assessment Requirements

Before registering for your first credit course, you must meet the requirements of the Texas Success Initiative (TSI). This includes a pre-assessment activity and assessment testing.

4. Information Session

All new students are required to attend an information session through the Advising Offices as well as the New Student Orientation.

During your information session, you will learn about the registration process and the many ways we can help you succeed on and off campus.

To help you stay on track, download the Navigate mobile app. It’s like having a personal advisor on call 24/7, from orientation through to graduation.

5. Registering for Classes

Any accepted student who has completed the application and advising process may register for the coming semester.
