As a Promise Scholar, you will receive a last-dollar scholarship covering tuition, fees, and assistance with books at participating Promise colleges. You will also receive additional supports to help navigate college life. The Promise Program is designed to support you through a two-year credential or degree, and ultimately a four-year degree if you choose. See below for current Promise Pathways.
