The academic challenges you face are only part of your Dallas College experience.
Almost 24,000 Dallas College students live in poverty, which is why we have established the Dallas College Emergency Aid Fund. Paying for necessities such as food, shelter, health care or transportation can be challenging and emergencies can arise.
The Emergency Aid Fund assists Dallas College students who are on the verge of suspending their educational pursuits because of a financial emergency. We want you to stick around and earn your degree.
"Dallas College's mission is to prepare students of all ages, from all walks of life, who represent the diversity of our community, to become productive and responsible citizens," said Dallas College Chancellor Dr. Joe May. "We know that we need to create a culture of caring that meets our students where they are."
Emergency aid for Dallas College students is made available through generous philanthropic donations to the Dallas College Foundation and through the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act recently passed by Congress. We have partnered with an educational technology company, Edquity, to help make the application and award process quick and easy for you.
