Seattle Promise (formerly 13th Year) – Free Tuition program at Seattle Central College

Seattle Promise Tuition program at Seattle Colleges.  All 2020 Garfield Graduates (make sure to sign up if you are planning to graduate this year) are eligible for two full years of classes (Fall, Winter & Spring quarters) at Seattle Colleges. But to qualify, you must fully register with the initial application deadlines Saturday, February 15th, 2020.  Help is available in the College & Career center after school.

All Application Instruction are at this link:

STEPS: To be eligible you will need to complete steps 1 – 2 by Friday, February 15th:
1. Seattle Promise Scholarship General Application by Feb 15th: Go to the following application page, and complete all the fields – I suggest reviewing all the information needed and gather that ahead of time, since you need to submit it all on that page at one time:

2. Apply to your choice of Seattle Colleges (linked here) for classes by Feb 15th Note: you can now apply for North, South or Central Seattle Colleges, you may want to review the College to Career website to find the best choice for your career interests.

3. File for Financial Aide no later than April 15th (suggested to do this much earlier by Jan 15th): You must also file for Finacial Aide with either FAFSA or WASFA no later than April 15th to complete your Financial Aid file.

4. Support Events: You will be invited by email to attend a few mandatory events to provide support preparing for the college including:
- Readiness Academy, in Spring 2020
- Summer Bridge Program in Late Summer
- Enroll full time (min 12 quarters) for Fall Quarter

5. You will need to complete a Financial Aid File at the college you will be attending by June 1st; your FASFA or WASFA application is part of this, and you will receive later details on how to complete it.

NOTE: you can back out this program anytime before the start of Fall Quarter, so it is advised to sign up and keep up with the program until you are fully accepted and have all finances arranged for another college.  This is a great back up, just in case something changes in your pursuit of another college.

QUESTIONS about the program? you can check in with the College & Career center, they are having a couple after school help sessions before the deadline.  And you can also contact the 13th Year coordinator Lee Westrick, Student Success Specialist for Garfield High School at: 206.934.3847 or by email: .

BTW, there is a very helpful “College to Career” interactive page to see what programs are available through Seattle Colleges based on our career interests:

Best of luck!
