Providing a Leg Up

Our Promise Program offers two years of free education for eligible students. In addition to registration fees, health fees, and your ASB stamp all being included, we also provide support for book costs. Perhaps more importantly, we provide a support system that will help you ensure you have a broader network that will help you through your time here at Saddleback.

In addition to the financial benefits, the Promise Program also provides access to success coaches at the college. We are people that know the different departments at the college and can help you navigate any issues that might come up.
