Congratulations on your acceptance to Dallas Christian College

Now that you have been accepted to DCC, please complete the five steps below
so that you will be ready to register for classes.


Student Portal
Master Promissory Note


Step 1) Fill out your FAFSA online

Go to to complete your 2013-2014 FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid).

If this is your first time to fill out a FAFSA, you will need a PIN (personal identification number), and if you are a dependent student, your parent or guardian will also need to have a PIN. The PINs will be used to sign in to the FAFSA and to electronically sign your FAFSA and master promissory notes should you decide to take out loans. The PIN website is at

Be sure to double-check your entries as you fill out your FAFSA. A mistake on your name or social security number will cause a delay in getting your FAFSA information to us, which in turn will put a hold on our ability to award you financial aid.

You will need to have your 2012 tax information in order to complete the FAFSA. You may be given the opportunity to use the IRS Retrieval option to pull your tax information directly from the IRS, which will often decrease the possibility of errors on your application. If your parent's or guardian's information is needed on the FAFSA, make sure they choose to use the same option if it is given to them.
