Lincoln High School has partnered with Sierra College to be part of the Sierra Promise and Two Years Free!  The Sierra Promise is a commitment to provide local high school students the opportunity to go to college.

Students who commit to Sierra Promise can:

  • Receive help with all the steps to get into college
  • Get earlier access to college classes
  • Explore careers and majors
  • Create a fast-track plan to complete your degree or certificate

Students who commit to Sierra Promise get additional services and support. These include:

  • Priority registration for your first semester, an education and career plan, assistance with financial aid/scholarships
  • Referrals to support and success programs such as RISE, Guardian Scholars, Puente, EOPS, etc.
  • Referrals to additional career and academic resources
  • Workshops and events to help with registration and orientation

In return, Promise Scholars commit to the following:

  • Complete the FAFSA or Dream Application
  • Participate in registration and orientation events sponsored by Sierra Promise
  • Enroll in 30 or more units within your first year (summer, fall, spring)

Do Promise Scholars also get their tuition paid for?

Probably!  If you complete your end of the Sierra Promise commitment and are a California resident, you will be eligible to have your two years of tuition covered through either the California College Promise Grant (need-based) or the AB19 State Promise Grant (non-need-based).
