LACP - Creating a City of Graduates
The Los Angeles College Promise (LACP) serves first-time, full-time college students with a comprehensive strategy designed to support students to complete a higher education degree and/or a workforce certificate. We help students "start right" on their way to "ending right" with a degree, university transfer or workforce certificate in a timely, efficient manner. It is a partnership between Los Angeles Community College District (LACCD), Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD), City of Los Angeles, LA Chamber of Commerce, UNITE LA and private philanthropy.
Important aspects of the Promise are waived tuition for the first two years of college, priority enrollment, additional financial support, and a dedicated support team providing a wide array of academic and student support services.
Important aspects of the LACP are:
- Waived tuition for two years of full-time college – based on financial aid eligibility. ALL students must complete financial aid application each year.
- Priority enrollment at any of LACCD's nine colleges – upon completion of matriculation process and remaining in LACP.
- Dedicated support team providing a wide array of academic and student support services
