Seattle Promise

Open the door to your future with two free years of college

Seattle Promise provides all graduating seniors from Chief Sealth International, Cleveland, Rainier Beach and West Seattle high schools with up to two years (or 90 credits) of FREE in-state tuition and support services at South Seattle College.

Take advantage of the scholarship, dive into your studies, and focus on finding an educational path that leads to a career you love.


Seattle Promise is a partnership with Seattle Colleges, Seattle School District, and the City of Seattle to build a thriving, college-going culture, and a local workforce ready for our region’s careers.

South Seattle College’s legacy 13th Year Promise Scholarship program helped inform and inspire today’s Seattle Promise. Essential support for student success and completion were added to the mission of college access for all to create a promise program that stood out in the nation.
