Promise Programs

About US

Promise Programs at PPSC offer full on-campus tuition, fees, books, and academic support for qualifying graduates from participating high school districts in the Colorado Springs area.

Students must apply and attend Pikes Peak State College within 16 months of graduation from their high school.

College costs are covered through a combination of federal grants, state grants, and college scholarships - all funds students do not have to pay back.

Our Promise students receive academic support through our coaching program. Coaches support students through college - from the start!

How it Works

PPSC Financial Aid office will add scholarship funding to your account after the drop date of the semester (about 2 weeks into the start of the semester) to cover any of costs that weren't covered by the initial financial aid package (excluding costs associated with online classes). Online classes are not covered by the Promise Program funding. 

Promise Programs prevent student loan debt. Remember, loans you HAVE to pay back. Promise students should exhaust all grants and scholarships before considering taking out a loan. (See your coach to find out if taking out a loan is absolutely necessary.)

Promise students are encouraged to apply for scholarships. The more scholarships you receive, the more money you have to support your towards your education.
