The SBCC Foundation launched the SBCC Promise in fall 2016, providing all local high school graduates with the opportunity to attend SBCC full-time free of charge, for up to two years. By removing financial barriers, the SBCC Promise is making our community’s college fully accessible to all local students who are willing to make the necessary commitments. The SBCC Promise relies entirely on private donations.

The SBCC Promise is revolutionary; it is comprehensive (covers tuition and all required fees, books and supplies), robust (covers two full academic years, including summer sessions), and open access (not restricted based on means or past academic performance). Eligibility is determined by a student’s high school location, year of graduation, and commitment to SBCC Promise eligibility requirements. Research on college achievement correlates a student’s chance of success in college with early enrollment, full-time student status, and access to academic counseling and support. The SBCC Promise is designed and built on these elements.
