Class of 2021, exciting news! For the first time ever, the Dallas County Promise Pledge opened on September 1, 2020. Take the pledge and submit an application to one of our partner colleges or universities by February 5, 2021, to have your tuition covered.

As a reminder, taking the pledge is not commitment to use Promise dollars, but it does count you "in" as a graduating senior interested in earning career and college credentials tuition free.

What is the Dallas County Promise?

Through the Dallas County Promise, participating colleges provide "last-dollar scholarships" to students who graduate from one of 57 Promise high schools with a high school diploma or associate degree. The Promise scholarship covers the gap between need-based financial aid and the cost of tuition for up to a time limit or the completion of a degree per institution.

All Promise Partner colleges promise to support and challenge you as you make your dreams a reality. Find our list of participating colleges and universities here to see your options. Once you complete an application, verify all information and enroll at the school of your choice, you’ll be paired with a success coach who will help you navigate college.
