The TJC Promise Program is a six-year, comprehensive program that spans from 9th grade through the first two years of college. The TJC Promise encourages students within the TJC tax district to perform well academically in high school and college, while limiting the number of missed school days and promoting community service. 

What does it include?

Students who fulfill the Promise requirements receive support and encouragement to obtain a college degree or certificate from TJC. The TJC Promise Program covers tuition and fees for up to two years through a combination of federal grants, TJC Scholarships, and the TJC Promise.

"The TJC Promise gives us opportunities for a better future, and it’s good that it requires students to make good grades, too. Not just everyone can get it. You actually have to work for it."

“The TJC Promise is a targeted way to encourage students to remain in school and work hard. If they stay with the program, they will be more likely to continue their education beyond high school and become productive members of society.”
