Earn your degree, tuition-free via The Seattle Promise Program
Earn your degree, tuition free via Seattle Promise. A college tuition and support program launched by the City of Seattle, Seattle Colleges and Seattle Public Schools following passage of the Families, Preschool, and Promise (FEPP) Levy in 2018.
Seattle Promise has three core components:
- Tuition at the three Seattle Colleges: South, Central, or North
- Equity scholarships, which provide flexible funding to students, for books, transportation, housing, or other student needs
- Student supports and advising beginning in the junior year of high school and lasting through completion of a degree, certificate, credential or transfer to a four-year institutions.
Seattle voters passed the FEPP Levy in November 2018 with the goal of achieving educational equity, closing opportunity gaps, and building a better future for Seattle students.
