    More than a Scholarship — A Partnership | Seattle Colleges Seattle Promise tuition free college education

    What is Seattle Promise? 
    Seattle Promise launched in 2018 to create more equitable higher education opportunities for Seattle public school graduates.

    The program is a promise to:

    1. Guide students onto a direct path from high school to college to earn a degree or certificate and enter the workforce or transfer to a four-year college or university;
    2. Boost career opportunities for all students, especially first-generation and under-served populations; and,
    3. Prepare students to participate in our region's vibrant workforce and economy without taking on overwhelming debt.

    The program provides the first two years (or up to 90 credits) of tuition, additional financial support for books, transportation, housing, etc. to those with financial need, and personal guidance to succeed in college. All Seattle public high school graduates are eligible regardless of grade point average (GPA), income, or country of birth.
