Please review and complete the requirements below, by the semester deadline, to be awarded the Promise Fall of 2nd Year.
2nd Year Payments
Students who meet the first-year completion requirements of a cumulative 2.0 GPA and completion of 12 units will be notified via email, at the end of the Spring semester, of their eligibility to complete the two (2) 2nd Year requirements above. These students will NOT be charged tuition and mandatory fees when registering for Fall classes. The Promise will pay costs after the semester deadline, once eligibility is verified.
Students are notified of eligibility about 4 weeks after the Fall semester begins. At this time, The Promise will pay the tuition and mandatory fees of eligible students.
Students who did not complete the requirements by the semester deadline will be billed the cost of tuition and mandatory fees. They will receive a denial email and will be responsible for the costs.
