Harper Promise Scholarship

Beginning with the class of 2019, D214 students will be eligible to earn up to two years of tuition free college attendance at Harper College.  For a detailed explanation of the program, including eligibility requirements, visit the Harper Promise site by clicking here(Spanish) (Polish)
 
All freshmen are encouraged to sign up for the Harper Promise for two simple reasons:
  1. By signing up, students will have the option to attend two years of Harper College tuition free, an option that they can later choose whether or not to accept.
  2. Meeting, or exceeding, the minimum eligibility requirements will help students no matter what they choose to do after high school and make it easier to attract other scholarships.
To participate in the Harper Promise Program, freshmen must register online, checking the "enroll" box during the general registration process in Infinite Campus or by completing Harper Promise Program Application below and returning it to the College Career Room (CCR), on or before December 14, 2018.
