Get in, Get through, and Graduate...on time!
All three of the San Mateo County Community College District's colleges — Cañada College, College of San Mateo, and Skyline College — have committed to making college affordable for all students through the Promise Scholarship.
Scholarship awardees receive a waiver covering all enrollment fees for any gap left after applying their financial aid award. The Scholarship is unique in that it covers fees and transportation, books, and more, all of which are financial barriers that can prevent students from being able to pursue the dream of higher education. Students also have access to textbooks and instructional material, and receive support services to help ensure they can graduate on time to start their careers or go on to four-year institutions.
While the Governor has signed AB19, the California Promise Program, it has yet to be funded. And the Promise Scholarship programs are dependent on the support of generous donors to provide the promise of higher education to all students attending the SMCCC District's colleges.
