Dallas County Promise Partner Colleges & Universities

Dallas County Promise partners with colleges and universities to ensure all Promise Scholars have an opportunity to earn credentials tuition-free. Whatever the cost of tuition is to attend a partner institution, Dallas County Promise covers the final bill after financial aid is applied. 

Once a student enrolls, these partners provide one-on-one success coaching and advising to support students during their college or program journey. 

How can you earn credits and credentials tuition-free? Take the Promise Pledge and enroll at a partner college or university with degree options that fit your career goals.

Our partners are diverse in that there are offers available for high school graduates earning a diploma or associate degree (AA, AS, AT), and transferring to a 4-year university to complete your bachelor's degree is an option.
