Siskiyou Promise - Supporting Siskiyou and Modoc County Students. Investing in the Future.

What is the Siskiyou Promise?

The College of the Siskiyous Promise is designed to remove the economic barriers to education. The "Promise" is graduating seniors from Siskiyou and Modoc County high schools (who are also California residents) will have their tuition ($46/unit) fully funded during their first full academic year (consecutive fall and spring semesters after high school graduation) of attendance at College of the Siskiyous, crediting any applicable financial assistance. Promise students must enroll as a full-time student (at least 12, but recommend 15 units) to be eligible for funding.

The Siskiyou Promise Grant is limited to two full, regular academic years (fall and spring semesters only) which excludes winter intersession and summer session.
