What is the Dallas County Promise?
Dallas County Promise Overview
Seniors at participating Dallas County high schools (Grand Prairie High School, South Grand Prairie High School and Dubiski Career High School) that meet the Promise deadlines will receive sufficient funding to pay the full cost of tuition for up to three years or 60 credit hours at any college within the Dallas County Community College District. Promise Scholars who meet income requirements and have a high school GPA of 2.5 or higher will also receive the Rising Star Scholarship to cover the cost of textbooks. Additionally, Dallas County Promise Scholars will be paired with and supported by a Success coach. Transfer scholarships available to UNT Dallas and SMU, with more universities coming on board soon.

New Promise Partners
The Dallas County Promise Program is excited to welcome the University of Texas at Arlington (UTA), the University of Texas at Dallas (UTD), and the University of North Texas (UNT) to the Promise family. They are still finalizing the details of each new institution’s scholarship offer, but we wanted students to know about all of the options that could be available to them this school year. As soon as agreements are formalize, they will update their website accordingly. Make sure to follow them on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram for the latest!
