General Questions About COVID-19

​​​​​​What is Dallas College planning for th​e Sring 2021 semester?

In the midst of this public health crisis, the health and safety of our students and employees are Dallas College's primary considerations. With this in mind, operations and classes will be predominantly online for the Spring 2021 semester. We will work closely with our partner school districts to develop safety protocols to continue delivering instruction for P-TECH, dual credit and early college high school. Some specialized programs and job preparation courses that require face-to-face or hands-on instruction will also continue in-person, and Dallas College will continue to create safe learning environments for those programs. Visit our back to campus page for more information. 

What is Dallas College doing for the Fall 2020 semester?

Operations and classes are predominantly online for the Fall 2020 semester. Visit our back to campus page for more information. 

I need to access campus. Can I go to campus?

Students who do not have a class currently on campus can make appointments for some in-person services, including advising and student services such as tutoring, libraries or computer labs. Students needing to make a payment do not need an appointment to visit campus. However, as soon as the transaction is made, the student must leave the campus. Campus health and safety protocols must be followed. A visitor request must be completed and approved prior to visiting campus for any other reason. Requests must be submitted at least 72 hours prior to the requested visit time to allow for processing.

I’m having trouble getting an answer to my question. Who can I contact for assistance or more information?

Students can ask us questions by texting “Dallas College” to 214-978-6457. The Dallas College texting team will reply and help find answers and reach the necessary people. Dallas College texting support is available in English and Spanish. If the question is about a specific course in which a student is enrolled, students should contact their instructor.

Are there any resources available to help students who are currently food insecure?

The North Texas Food Bank is assisting those with food insecurities. You can use their Find a Food Pantry page or look at upcoming NTFB events to see upcoming locations where food will be distributed.

What resources are available to Dallas College students?

Whether you’re starting the process of enrolling at Dallas College or taking your last semester of classes, Dallas College has plenty student resources and services available to help. Dallas College also has a community resources page, student discount page (login required) and a list of local, open positions for students seeking employment.

What should I do if I think I have been exposed to COVID-19?
