North Orange Promise Program

The Promise Program provides 2 years of free tuition to first-time college students. We want to help students with the cost of college by covering the enrollment and health fees through the North Orange Promise Fee Waiver. The program provides wrap around services to first-time and continuing Promise students. There is no income requirement, just to be a first-time college student and a California Resident. Visit our website for more information, including FAQs, steps to join, and other programs available within the Promise & First Year Support center.
