Harris County Promise Program

Harris County Promise Program

San Jacinto College is proud to partner with Pasadena ISD and Good Reason Houston to assist graduating Seniors from Dobie HS, Sam Rayburn HS, and South Houston HS pay for college at San Jacinto. The Harris County Promise program is available to Texas resident seniors, regardless of high school GPA or income. Eligible seniors who become Promise Scholars receive up to three years of guaranteed tuition and fees, assistance with books, and additional support to help them complete their degrees.

Promise is a last-dollar scholarship covering the cost of tuition and fees at  San Jacinto. “Last-dollar” means the scholarship kicks in after all other grant and scholarship funding has been applied. To be eligible, students must qualify for in-district tuition (reside in the college’s taxing district), and complete all steps by their associated deadline.

Promise Scholars also receive extra perks when they enroll in a partner college, including their own Success Coach to help navigate college life. The Promise Pledge is the first step in the process. It is not binding and students are not required to attend a Promise College. We hope every senior will take advantage of submitting a pledge and remaining eligible.
