• Hello, class of 2021 parents!

    Graduation is very close which makes this a very exciting time for you and your seniors! With spring break right around the corner, it gives your students the perfect opportunity to finish their FAFSA to be able to qualify for financial aid and scholarships from the schools they wish to attend. Attached, you will find a FAFSA completion guide for your convenience: FAFSA ePacket - GPISD.pdf 


    Another important task to complete this spring break is the Dallas Promise if it is not yet completed. It is simple and quick to complete . To be eligible for the Dallas Promise you must

    1. Pledge
    3. 3. Complete FAFSA/TAFSAhere: https://www1.dcccd.edu/DallasCountyPromise/Pledge/


    Finally, the University of Texas at Arlington is still accepting applications! UTA has waived all application fees for our GPSID students which means the application is completely free and it is an excellent plan. Students can apply through Apply Texas, if they have already completed an application for any other college through Apply Texas, then they can just copy and paste that application to UTA and submit it. The link to apply is: https://www.applytexas.org/adappc/gen/c_start.WBX


    Attached, you will also find a scholarship packet that your students can work on during the break. Please continue to check canvas for important updates as well as scholarships!
