    What is Sierra Promise?
    Sierra Promise is a partnership between Sierra College and our local district high schools to help students with their transition to college. Sierra Promise helps make students college-ready before they graduate from high school, and helps them start college with an education/career plan and access to financial support.

    Who is eligible for Sierra Promise?  
    Granite Bay High School is a partner high school, as a current senior you are initially eligible. Once a student completes an application for admission to the college, he/she will receive an invitation in their mySierra account to “Become a Promise Scholar.”

    • Priority registration for your first semester, an education and career plan, assistance with financial aid/scholarships
    • Referrals to support and success programs such as RISE, Guardian Scholars, Puente, EOPS, etc.
