Did you recently graduate from a Dallas ISD high school?
If you're nodding your head or doing cartwheels right now, listen up – this is for you!
You are invited to a special event on Thursday, June 22, at North Dallas High School. It's called the EduCareer Expo, and it will be open from 9 a.m. - 2 p.m.!
At the expo you can meet with representatives from the seven colleges that make up the
Dallas County Community College District (DCCCD), including:
If you are curious where our colleges are located, you can
see a map on our website. Of course you do not have to travel to campus; you can also take classes online from home (or from Hawaii – really anywhere) with
Dallas Colleges Online.
At the EduCareer Expo there will be information tables to help you learn about career and technical programs as well as advisors to help you
apply and register for college classes.
There will even be
financial aid assistance – including a table about our
Rising Star scholarship.
DISD will print transcripts in advance for all graduates to pick up at the expo. This means you will have more time to visit the college/program tables and get assistance with student services.
Bring your questions!
You are also welcome to bring parents or family members. Sometimes this can be useful when learning about the financial aid process. If you were selected for
financial aid verification, bring a copy of your (and/or your parent's) tax transcripts, W2's and any other FAFSA information requested.
Finally, bring your immunization records.
The state of Texas requires bacterial meningitis vaccination for college students (details and exemptions here).
Garland’s Health Department will be on site to provide meningitis vaccines. Costs for the vaccine depend on your insurance status. Below is information on the private insurances Garland accepts and state programs offered.
The above insurance carriers are
subject to co-pay. Also, if you have a private insurance other than the three listed above the vaccine price will be $135.00.
The 2017 EduCareer Expo will be held at North Dallas High School: 3120 N. Haskell Ave., Dallas, TX 75204. You can
RSVP for the event on Facebook so you don't forget the address.
