Dallas College offers programs at each of its seven campuses in a wide variety: Pharmacy Technology, Vocational Nursing, Management, Logistics, Engineering Technology, and much more. These programs offer certifications and associate-level degrees that can increase your earning potential at your current job or help you land a job that’s better for you.

**Note: Assigned guardians include, but are not limited to, a biological parent, foster parent, step-parent, older sibling, grandparent, aunt, or uncle with primary guardianship of the high school student. The student must live with the guardian for the parent to be fully eligible and only one guardian per household may participate.
