Harper Promise: College Readiness via Access to Higher Ed

Commitment by

Harper College

In 2014, Harper College, working in partnership with three large suburban and diverse school districts, committed to implement a national demonstration program, The Promise Program, to incentivize a path to workforce and post-secondary readiness for all students in these schools. The Promise Program will commit to providing full 'last dollar' tuition payments to each of these students who commit to the program as ninth graders and consistently (over the next four years and the first four semesters at Harper) meet specific measures in attendance, rigor, persistence, quality, and service to the community.
