Posted: December 2, 2016, 10:24 am

Start planning for your next semester! The Spring 2017 class schedule is now available. (It’s also worth noting that Wintermester is included as part of the Spring schedule. So if you’re trying to earn some extra credits over the holidays, you’re in the right place.)

Not sure if you’re ready to start classes bright and early with us on January 17? Be sure to also check out some of the Flex Term options available for next semester. The start and end dates for Flex Term classes vary, so we’ll be here whenever you’re ready.

Note that dates and times for on-campus registration may vary by college; visit your college’s website for the most current information.
If you are new to the colleges of DCCCD, we strongly recommend that you register in person (link is external) at the college you plan to attend so you can get information about course prerequisites, the degrees we offer, the Texas Success Initiative (TSI), tuition and other important topics.
