How much does the DC program cost?
Please check the Tuition & Fees section of MyParker, listed under the Business Office. They will have the most
current, up-to-date information.
How long is the DC program?
The program lasts for 10 trimesters, which is 3 years and 4 months.
What is the cost per credit hour?
Tuition for each trimester is based on a flat-rate. It is not calculated per hour. For special schedules of under 16
hours, or over 30 hours, please contact your Financial Aid Coordinator for more information.
Are there any grants for the DC program?
There are several state-funded grant programs available to students coming from outside of Texas. For the most up-to-date information on available state grants, check the 'Incoming Students' section of our webpage, or contact Stephanie Kennedy (972-438-6932, ext. 7028).
How can I get additional funds?
Once a trimester, each student can apply for a Grad Plus loan to help cover unexpected costs that would prevent a student from continuing on in his/her studies. If a student's overall budget needs to be increased for such a loan, we may be able to accommodate the request to make room for childcare costs or National Boards exams. The application for Professional Judgment is in the Financial Aid Office and on MyParker. Once we receive your application, one of our coordinators will process it and contact you regarding your specific account and budget.
What is the Texas Grant and how can I get it?
The Texas Grant is awarded to students that are considered a Texas resident. This grant is offered once a year. In order to receive the grant, you need to fill out the Texas Core Questions, located on the rolling rack outside of the Financial Aid office. Once we receive the core questions, we will review your file and verify that you are a Texas resident. Additional documentation may be required. Amounts vary, based on state funding at the time of your application.
