Dallas/Fort Worth Admissions Regional Network (DARN) is a community of regionally based admissions professionals living in Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) representing non-profit academic institutions. 

DARN Aligns with Anti-Racism and Supports the Black Lives Matter Movement

As an organization, we have witnessed the history of racial injustice that the black community has endured in a country that avoids ending systemic racism. This toxic approach ignores the harsh reality of black people all over the world and the oppression and injustices that they face. DARN stands with those who have been silenced and supports all of our members of color and, unequivocally, supports black lives.

DARN COVID-19 Resources:

The members of the Dallas/Fort Worth Admissions Regional Network have compiled two resources for counselors, advisers, families and students navigating the college search process during the Coronavirus Pandemic.

This document contains DARN members' institutional admission policies related to the Coronavirus outbreak.

Our Mission


DARN supports its individual members both professionally and personally through the promotion of professional development, higher education, and community relations.


Professional Development – Collaborate for conference proposals and presentations, provide leadership opportunities and event planning experience, and encourage participation in professional organizations related to our work. 
Higher Education – Educate and prepare high school students in learning about higher education and finding the “Right Fit” institution for life after high school or community college. 
Community Relations – Build relationships with high school counselors, students and families, and community based organizations in DFW through attending events already scheduled and working to implement new programs expanding the visibility of our individual institutions. Host a counselor advisory board to gain insight and ideas.

DARN serves the community in several ways:

· Attending non-TACRAO programs and events in the area

· Arranging group presentations or lunch visits at high schools
