• Oregon Promise

    The state is launching its Oregon Promise program - offering new high school graduates and GED recipients an opportunity to have some or all of their community college tuition covered. Grants are for students entering a community college in Oregon in Fall 2016.

    You may qualify if you:

    • Graduate from an Oregon high school or complete the GED in Spring/Summer 2016.
    • Have a 2.5 cumulative GPA or higher (high school students). Score 150 or higher on each of the 4 tests (GED).
    • Have been an Oregon resident for at least 12 months prior to enrolling in community college.

    Steps to take:

    Apply for the Oregon Promise between November 1, 2015 and March 1, 2016, including:

    • Complete the Oregon Promise application (online or written)
    • Submit your high school transcript or GED scores
    • Complete the FAFSA or its approved alternative

    Once approved, Enroll in an Oregon community college within six months of graduating high school or completing the GED (Fall 2016) - and accept all state and federal grants.

    Oregon Promise grants are only available to future students entering community college in Fall 2016. Students who do not qualify for this grant are encouraged to talk to their school’s financial aid office to explore the many other ways to afford their college goals.
