Dallas County Community College District


The Dallas County Community College District (DCCCD) is one of the largest community college systems in the state of Texas. Since 1965, the college system has served more than 3 million people. The colleges of DCCCD work to ensure Dallas County is vibrant, growing and economically viable for future generations. In addition, we provide economic benefits to business, taxpayers and the community. The seven independently accredited colleges of Dallas County Community College District (DCCCD) are Brookhaven, Cedar Valley, Eastfield, El Centro, Mountain View, North Lake and Richland.

DCCCD serves more than 80,000 credit and 20,000 continuing education students each semester; that total in 2017-2018 was 171,556. The district expects to see steady enrollment growth through 2030 to approximately 92,000 credit students. In order to help the state of Texas meet the goals of 60x30TX – a statewide initiative to award a total of 3.4 million certificates or degrees by 2030, with targeted goals for Hispanic, African American, male and economically-disadvantaged completers – more DCCCD resources and facilities are needed.

DCCD Chancellor Dr Joe May is nationally and internationally recognized as a result of his relentless advocacy for the role of community colleges in solving today’s most challenging social issues.
