Dallas County Parent Promise
Congratulations on your decision to further your education!
Thank you for your interest in the Dallas County Parent Promise scholarship. The Promise Pledge is now closed and will re-open for 2021-2022 high school graduates in November 2021.
The Dallas County Parent Promise covers any cost of tuition (classes) that your financial aid grants do not cover. You must enroll in an academic program at Dallas College which corresponds to a high demand occupation. Parent Promise also pairs you with a Success Coach for the next two to five years to help you navigate and succeed in your college experience. For more details on program requirements and specifics visit the Dallas County Parent Promise website .
All Dallas County Parent Promise information will be sent to the email address and the cell phone number (via text messages) that you list on your Pledge form. If your contact information changes, please let us know by emailing ParentPromise@dcccd.edu.
The Dallas County Parent Promise funding can only be used at Dallas College; however, completing the Promise Pledge does not commit you to attending a Promise Partner college.
- Dallas County 2021 graduates attending participating high schools who complete their Promise Pledge by April 5, enable one parent or guardian to become eligible for the Dallas County Parent Promise. Students not completing their Pledge by April 5 will not be eligible for the Dallas Promise Scholarship or Rising Star Scholarship, nor shall their parent or guardian be eligible for the Dallas County Parent Promise.
- The Dallas County Parent Promise Pledge is non-binding. Parents completing the Parent Promise Pledge are not committing to attend Dallas College. Students completing the Promise Pledge are not committing to attend Dallas College or any other Promise Partner college. If a student decides not to take advantage of the Dallas County Promise scholarship, it does not disqualify his or her parent or guardian from participating in the Parent Promise.
- All official Parent Promise correspondence is sent by email, thus you must have an email address to create a user account and complete your Parent Promise Pledge. If you are a parent or guardian who used their email address to complete their child's Promise pledge, you must create a new user account using a different email address. Each email address must be unique.
- To match your pledge to your student's pledge, you will need to know your student's high school, high school ID, student name as listed with the high school and your student's Dallas County Promise Pledge ID.
- Once your student has received their pledge ID and the record has been updated, you can begin the Parent Promise Pledge. You will be notified by email. If you have already been notified, you can click on the link below.
