Get More With the Core Curriculum

The core of learning in college is a set of courses that will provide you with the knowledge, skills and educational experiences you need to succeed in higher education. Those classes — called the Core Curriculum — are the courses that lead to an associate degree from the colleges of DCCCD and which transfer to four-year colleges and universities.

Students who complete the DCCCD Core Curriculum with at least a 2.0 grade point average are guaranteed that their courses will transfer as a block of credit to any Texas public college or university. State law mandates that individual Core courses must be accepted as well by the transfer institution.
