Earning a certificate or degree can be faster than you think. To help you complete a certificate or degree on time (or even early) each of the colleges of the Dallas Community College District offer Block Schedule Programs every semester.
Block Schedule Programs are conveniently offered in scheduled blocks,such as a morning, full-day, afternoon, evening or a weekend.
You may not need to take the
TSI assessment to participate in block programs. Just check the program description!
With a Block Schedule you will know when you will take classes. No more digging through the class schedule trying to find the class you need! Your schedule will stay predictable from semester to semester as the meeting days and times remain the same (only the class content will change).
Since block scheduling allows you to register for multiple courses at once, it is easier to pick the classes you want and need. You are also less likely to accidentally take extra courses that are not required for your certificate or degree plan.
Entering a Block Schedule Program often means you remain with the same group of classmates throughout your entire certificate or degree program. This gives you the option to know your colleagues better (go network)! It also makes scheduling study groups and group projects easier as schedules line up.
Signing up for a Block Schedule Program is easy. Just fill in the block!
