Dallas Community Colleges Student Blog Posts

Welcome to Summer I for 2015!

We’re so glad you’re back for summer classes! If you missed the registration deadline (you can’t register for a class after it has met once), we still have some great options for you:

  • Flex Term classes — We offer Flex Term classes starting every month. Flex Term classes are often short-term college classes, but the length varies depending on the class.
  • Summer II classes — Summer II classes start Monday, July 13. Check the DCCCD summer schedule to see what’s available.
  • Online classes — If you can’t make it to campus, online classes at community college are a great way to pick up some summer credits. Some are Flex Terms and some are traditional semester-length classes.
