The Promise Scholarship program is open to all recent San Luis Obispo County high school graduates, including those who receive their GED or are home-schooled, who attend Cuesta College immediately following their completion of high school. The program is removing financial barriers by paying all student fees an entire year (consecutive fall and spring semesters).
Whether a student is part or full-time, the Promise will pay for the following costs: enrollment fees, health fee, Associated Students of Cuesta College ID card, student fee, Student Center fee and course materials fees that are included in the course description on Class Finder. The Promise launched in the fall of 2014 and currently has paid $186,000 in fees. Nearly 650 students are enrolled in the program, which will save a student an average of $1,400 in fees.
