Withdrawing From Classes: Means to officially drop all courses for a given semester within the Dallas County Community College District.

All refunds may take up to 30 days to process. Refunds and/or disbursements may be held indefinitely if you have certain blocks on your account or if you owe a prior financial obligation to the DCCCD.

NOTE: DCCCD has partnered with Higher One, a financial services company, to process and distribute refunds and disbursements to most credit students and financial aid students.

Most students who receive financial aid and most credit students who paid cash or check should receive their refunds & disbursements via Higher One. Click here for instructions on how to get your Higher One DCCCD Money Card.

Most credit students who paid with a credit or debit card & are not receiving financial aid should receive their refunds back to the card that was used for payment.
