studentsSkyline College is committed to empowering students to find success at every point in their educational journey. The Skyline College Promise is the College’s commitment to help students “Get in. Get through. and Get out…on time!” according to their educational goals.

One part of the Skyline College Promise is the Skyline College Promise Scholarship. To help students reach their goals, we’re announcing a scholarship beginning fall 2016 that will pay enrollment fees for a full year! Skyline College Promise Scholarship awardees will receive a waiver covering enrollment fees for any gap left after applying their financial aid award (for students in receipt of financial aid).

The Skyline College Promise Scholarship is available to high school graduates or students who recently completed their GED or Adult Education program after December 1, 2015 and who enroll at Skyline College full-time and plan to earn a certificate/degree. Scholarship applicants must also be a first time student at Skyline College. The enrollment fees covered are; enrollment fee (tuition), health fee, student rep fee, student union fee, and student body fee.

To maintain the scholarship, students agree to; enroll full-time (minimum 12 units) for fall and spring semesters, maintain academic progress, a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0, a completion rate above 50%, must declare a major by start of spring 2017 semester, and complete a comprehensive student education plan (SEP) by start of spring 2017 semester.
