PathologyOutlines / Detroit College Promise

 

 

November 2010

This is our monthly email about The Detroit College Promise. We now offer financial incentives in the form of scholarships to all current Detroit Public School students to attend Michigan public colleges and universities, if they live in Detroit and register by December 1, 2010.

 


Our Deadline Is Approachinghttp://www2.bc.edu/%7Eoconnogq/image/pen_paper_cartoon.gif

Just a reminder to tell all DPS students that you know that the application deadline for students currently in grades 9-12 is December 1, 2010. This means that there are only 17 days left to register or 10 school days! You can register online in 2 minutes by visiting our website and clicking on the Student Login button in the upper right hand corner.

Thanks so much to the dedicated DPS principals, counselors, teachers and other staff, who have done such a great job in registering over 10,000 students.  Here are the totals of registered students, by DPS high school and year of graduation, as of November 11.  Please note that this does not include many applications from Cody-DIT, Cody-Upper, Detroit International Academy and West Side (which were not yet put into the database), as well as other applications still at the school or registrations after that date:
