About Education-Related Programs

How to Get Started

Complete the admissions process and meet with an academic advisor at Richland College. The Associate of Arts in Teaching (AAT) degree is offered at all of the seven colleges of DCCCD.


Dallas County residents pay $177 per three-hour class — that is $59 per credit hour, or just $708 for a full-semester load of 12 credit hours.

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