The following Dallas County Promise partners have offers for students graduating from high school to directly enroll at their college or university.
Dallas County Community Colleges
Brookhaven, Cedar Valley, Eastfield, El Centro, Mountain View, North Lake, and Richland
If your federal and state financial aid doesn’t cover the cost of classes at a Dallas County Community College, Promise dollars will. Either way, your tuition is covered! Dallas County Promise covers the cost of college classes (tuition) for up to three years or completion of a degree at any Dallas County Community College. Students must qualify for in-state tuition, but there are no income or GPA requirements. All students completing the steps by the deadlines will receive a scholarship to cover the cost of tuition at any DCCCD college.
