Did You Know … ?
… that DCCCD offers more than 200 distance learning courses through its online campus, Dallas TeleCollege?
Distance learning brings the classroom to you — around the world and around the clock — and can make it easier to achieve your educational goals.
Distance learning faculty and curriculum meet the same standards as those of the traditional classroom. Best of all, through open enrollment, the most popular core courses start again every few weeks. (View DTC’s class schedules to find out what’s available.)
If you’re not sure if online classes are a good fit for you, check out DTC’s online distance learning readiness assessment (READI). Don’t worry, it’s not a test; READI is just a tool to help you learn about your strengths and weaknesses as you prepare to take classes online.
