Foster Care Student Program

​Were you a part of the Texas foster care system? Our Foster Care Student Program can help you.

The Foster Care Student Program connects you to College Champions at Dallas College. These champions:

  • Help you navigate financial aid, advising and other student services, from the time you enroll through graduation
  • Link you to the resources provided by Student Life and academic support groups

Our Foster Care Student Program is a collaboration between the Dallas College Office of Educational Policy/Student Success and our Brookhaven, Cedar Valley, Eastfield, El Centro, Mountain View, North Lake and Richland campuses.

Tuition and Fee Exemption

As a Texas Foster Care alumnus, you are eligible to attend college for free through a state tuition and fee exemption.
