The SBCC Foundation helps students in our community like Leslie Marin, an SBCC Promise student, receive an outstanding higher education and pursue their dreams.
“School has always been a priority for me and my family, but my parents couldn’t afford to pay for my tuition. I was going to have to take a semester off from school to work full time and save money, but the SBCC Promise removed that financial burden. When I told my mom about the SBCC Promise, I saw her eyes tear up. The Promise removed the stress of paying for college, allowing me to focus on my education.” – Leslie Marin, SBCC Promise student
The SBCC Promise provides any local student who completes their secondary education within the Santa Barbara Community College District with the opportunity to attend SBCC full-time for two years, free of charge. The Promise relies on privately raised funds to cover all tuition and required fees, books, and supplies.
