Mountain View Graduation Application

**Must be submitted by February 26, 2021!!**

Completing the Mountain View application for graduation is the only way to ensure you receive your diploma.

This form informs Dallas College when you will be completing your degree or certificate and how you would like your name to appear on your diploma or certificate of completion.

If you have met all TSI requirements, degree/certificate, and graduation requirements (including up-to-date copies of transcripts from all colleges attended outside of Dallas College), you will be awarded your degree or certificate of completion at the end of the appropriate term.

Mountain View Program of Study Audit

**Must be submitted by February 26, 2021!!**

If you are seeking an associate degree or certificate, you should request an official audit of your program of study by completing an Official Program of Study Audit form. Official transcripts of all previously attempted college course-work must be on file at the time of your request. A degree audit will be conducted, which includes a review of all of your completed college-level courses, including transfer course-work. You will be notified by the Degree Audit Office once your official Program of Study has been processed.

TSI Boot Camps and Tests

Big picture

Collegiate Academy strives to ensure all scholars are successful in their academics. To ensure all scholars are successful on the TSI Reading and Writing, we have scheduled boot camps for scholars to gain strategies for the assessment. There are two steps scholars need to complete.

Step One

Schedule a Reading and Writing boot camp using the Sign Up Genius. Reading and writing boot camps are held in two parts. Scholars will sign up for Tuesday and will also attend on the following Wednesday. Scholars must attend both sessions in order to test.

Step Two

Schedule a corresponding TSI test following the boot camp the scholar signed up for using the separate Sign Up Genius. The TSI test changed in January 2021. Scholars that were not TSI met before January 2021 will have to take the combined reading and writing test on their sign up day.

Boot camp attendance is mandatory. Scholars must be signed up for boot camp by Monday, February 8, 2021 at 4 PM.

Please contact us at dhscollegiate@duncanvilleisd.org if you have any questions.

Please partner with us to ensure scholars are logging in at the appropriate time and completing all assignments in their high school and college courses. Teachers have communicated their distance learning expectations for scholars. Scholars will have at least two assignments per week in each class. Please support us in checking your scholar's grades in Skyward Family Access and eCampus ensuring they are completing their assignments by the established deadlines.
