Dallas County Promise for Class of 2018

We are thrilled to announce the launch of the Dallas County Promise!

The Promise is a partnership of school districts, colleges, and nonprofits coming together to make college completion possible for more Dallas County students. Seniors from the thirty-one participating high schools [yes, LCHS is one!] can get started by completing their Promise Pledge at

Thanks to an unprecedented financial commitment from the Dallas County Community College District (DCCCD) Foundation, all seniors – regardless of GPA or family income – at thirty-one Promise high schools will have the opportunity to earn a full-tuition scholarship, a Success Coach mentor, and access to additional transfer scholarships to attend partner four-year universities, including SMU and UNT-Dallas.

To receive the Dallas County Promise, seniors must meet three key deadlines:
  1. January 31 - Complete the Dallas County Promise Pledge
  2. March 15 - Complete the DCCCD admissions application and submit FAFSA/TASFA with a DCCCD college listed
  3. July 31 - Complete DCCCD registration for the fall semester
Promise Scholars who meet financial requirements and have a high school GPA of 2.5 or higher (75 or better on a 100-point scale) will be automatically awarded the DCCCD Rising Star Scholarship which covers the additional cost of textbooks and provides an in-person Rising Star advisor.
Please note - seniors in a Promise high school must complete the Promise Pledge by January 31 to be eligible for both Promise and Rising Star.

Congratulations, Class of 2018!
