2 Years of Free Tuition For Fall 2019

Shasta College students enrolling this fall will be eligible to receive their first two years of college tuition free! Previously, the Shasta College Promise Program provided all first-time, full-time students with their first year of college, tuition-free. For many students, this made an incredible difference in their ability to pursue higher education or to transfer on to a university. Now, the California Governor’s Office has updated California Assembly Bill 19 (AB-19) to allow for two years of free tuition for California Community College students. Moving forward this will also include tuition during any summer term which precedes a student’s first and second academic year.

To qualify for the program, first-time Shasta College students who are California residents need to apply for financial aid, register for 12 units or more and complete a new student orientation and education plan at the college. Students who participated in the Shasta College Promise Program last year (2018/19) will be eligible to receive their second year free under this updated program. Anyone who has completed a degree or certificate from a postsecondary institution will not be eligible for this program. Dual/concurrently enrolled high school students at Shasta College will still not pay any tuition for classes and will be eligible as first-time students for this program on graduation from high school. Concurrently enrolled students will still be responsible for paying the Student Health and Campus fees which total $40.50.
