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.”
What does it mean to “Become a Promise Scholar?”
Students who commit to Sierra Promise get additional services and support. These include:
- 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.
- Referrals to additional career and academic resources
- Workshops and events to help with registration and orientation
In return, Promise Scholars commit to the following:
- Complete the FAFSA or Dream application
- Participate in registration and orientation events sponsored by Sierra Promise
- Enroll in 30 or more units within your first year (summer, fall, spring)
The internet offers a variety of free scholarship search sites (see below). Be wary of any entity that guarantees you will be selected for a scholarship. Remember: If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is! If you think you are a victim of a scholarship scam or financial aid fraud, please report it immediately to the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Inspector General at 1-800-MIS-USED or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
