We’re so glad you’re back for summer classes! If you missed the registration deadline (you can’t register for a class after it has met once), we still have some great options for you:
- Flex Term classes — We offer Flex Term classes starting every month. Flex Term classes are often short-term college classes, but the length varies depending on the class.
- Summer II classes — Summer II classes start Monday, July 13. Check the DCCCD summer schedule to see what’s available.
- Online classes — If you can’t make it to campus, online classes at community college are a great way to pick up some summer credits. Some are Flex Terms and some are traditional semester-length classes.
As a non-Bruce Parramore, Eastfield welding graduatetraditional student, Bruce Parramore worked as a truck driver while taking welding courses at Eastfield College. Within four months, Bruce went from truck driver to full-time welder within the same company.
The availability of welding jobs in Texas is on the rise, with starting salaries between $40,000 and $70,000. An associate degree in Welding from DCCCD will only cost you about $3,600, making it a great value for the cost.
