A diverse, progressive educational environment.
Founded in 1978, Brookhaven College is one of the seven colleges of the Dallas County Community College District, the largest undergraduate institution in the State of Texas.
Brookhaven College is a diverse, progressive educational environment enriching the lives of students, employees and community members.
The college provides affordable freshman- and sophomore-level courses. Many students each year successfully transfer to four-year universities, while others enter directly into the workforce with a technical degree, certificate or skills award. Tuition averages about $885 per semester for a full-time Dallas County student – $177 for a three-hour credit course. Recent enrollments include over 12,000 credit students and another 3,000 continuing education, or noncredit, students.
The Brookhaven College Core Curriculum allows you to complete your foundational courses and take advantage of our affordable tuition before transferring to a four-year university. The Core Curriculum guarantees the transfer of the Core to any public university or college in Texas, as long as you've completed the entire block and finished with a 2.0 GPA or higher. When you transfer, you will be ahead of the game with at least 42 credit hours to apply toward any major. With just 19 additional credit hours beyond your Core courses, you could earn an Associate's Degree to show prospective employers your commitment to higher education.
Full range of student support services.
Academic programs are complemented by a full range of student support services including advising, career development, mental health counseling, financial aid, disabilities services, tutoring, intercollegiate sports, student clubs and organizations and access to computer laboratories.
