Harper Promise

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.

All freshmen are encouraged to sign up for the Harper Promise for two simple reasons:

  1. By signing up, students will have a two years for free college option they could later opt not to choose.
  2. Meeting, or exceeding, the minimum eligibility requirements will serve students well, no matter what they choose to do after high school.

To participate in the Harper Promise Program, completed freshman (Class of 2020) applications must be turned in to the College & Career Center, on or before December 15, 2016.

Participating students were notified, in August of 2016, about their continued participation in the Harper Promise Program or their inability to participate because they did not meet one or more program criteria. After receiving that notification, anyone who did not meet criteria because of extraordinary circumstances is eligible to appeal.  A form for that process can be accessed by clicking HERENOTE: The completed Appeal Form must be emailed to Harper College (email address on form) by September 15, 2016.
