About This Program

How to Get Started

To get started in the Business Administration program, complete the admissions process at any of DCCCD’s seven colleges. When you meet with an academic advisor, mention your interest in the Business Administration program so he or she can help you determine which courses you should take.

If you are planning to earn an associate degree or certificate, please note that you must complete 25 percent of your degree requirements at the college awarding the degree.


Dallas County residents pay $156 per three-hour class — that’s $52 per credit hour, or just $624 for a full semester load of 12 credit hours.

Compare that to what you’d pay elsewhere! See DCCCD tuition rates for tuition according to your place of residency.
