My child is the first person in our family to go to college and I am not familiar with the college process. What should I know/prepare for so that my child succeeds?
We understand the college enrollment process can be confusing, particularly for first-generation students and their families, but you are not alone! The Dallas County Promise team is here to help guide you through the scholarship process and requirements. Each high school has dedicated staff, such as a college advisor or graduation coach, to support their current students in exploring college, military, and workforce options after graduation. Each college also has dedicated staff in their admissions, financial aid, and other student services offices to support incoming students. Start exploring college and career options with your student, and reach out to us at Info@DallasCountyPromise.org anytime you have questions!
