While everything around us constantly changes, there’s one thing we can count on staying the same: paying for college is tough and expensive.
Glendale Community College believes no one should be discouraged from continuing their education, and with GCCPromise first-time students could attend their first year of college for free!
Thanks to funding in the 2018-19 California Budget Act, the California Community College Chancellor’s Office established the California College Promise Program to “increase the number of high school students enrolling ‘college-ready’ directly into the California Community Colleges, the number of students successfully completing a career education goal or transferring, and reducing and eliminating achievement gaps.”
To be eligible for GCCPromise, students must be:
A first-time, degree-seeking college student
Enrolled at GCC in at least 12 units
A California Resident
FAFSA or CADAA applicant for 2018/19
Although the fall semester has already started, students who qualify can apply to receive GCCPromise funding for the 2018/2019 school year. Dreamers are eligible for this opportunity.
