Harper Promise Scholarship

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 help students no matter what they choose to do after high school and make it easier to attract other scholarships.
