About SBCCD's Free College Promise:

SBCCD's Free College Promise will kick off with 1,000 high school graduates of the Class of 2019 from Colton Joint Unified School District, Redlands Unified, Rialto Unified, Rim of the World Unified, San Bernardino City Unified, and Yucaipa-Calimesa Unified.

In addition to two years of zero tuition at Crafton Hills College and San Bernardino Valley College, Promise students will receive free textbooks, $300 cash for college expenses, free access to a laptop for coursework, individualized advising and priority course enrollment so they can earn a career certificate, an associate degree, or transfer to a four-year university in two years.

Funding comes from a $10 million endowment established in October 2018 by the SBCCD Board of Trustees.
