Sierra College Promise
Whitney High School has partnered with Sierra College to be part of the Sierra Promise! The Sierra Promise helps make students college-ready before they graduate from high school and helps them start college with an education/career plan and access to financial support. All Whitney High School students are eligible. Once a student completes an application for admission to the college, the student will receive an invitation in their mySierra account to "Become a Promise Scholar."
Students who "Become a Promise Scholar" and 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)
Most likely! If you complete your end of the Sierra Promise commitment and are a California resident, you will be eligible to have your first two years of tuition covered through either the California College Promise Grant (need-based) or Two Years Free, also known as the AB2 State Promise Grant (non-need-based).
Learn more about Sierra College Financial Aid Assistance including Grants, Scholarships, Student Employment, Loans, CCPG (formerly BOG) Fee Waiver, and Book Vouchers.
