The Promise program serves first-time college students with a comprehensive strategy designed to support students to complete a higher education degree and/or a workforce certificate. We help students "start right" on their way to "ending right" with a degree, university transfer or workforce certificate in a timely, efficient manner. Your first step to free tuition is to complete your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or the California Dream Act application. See additional information on our "APPLY" page.
Important aspects of the program are:
- Waived tuition for two years of full-time college
- Priority enrollment
- Dedicated support team providing a wide array of academic and student support services
The Promise program is designed to prepare you for academic success and to help you in selecting the career path that's right for you. Whether you are transitioning from high school or just beginning your college education, the rigors of college life can present even the best students with challenges that require major adjustments. Sometimes getting started may seem overwhelming, as there are many decisions to make. That's why we have created a supportive environment here at Los Angeles Southwest College where there are people and programs to assist you with your college career.
