Harper Promise

Beginning with the class of 2019, D214 students will be eligible to earn up to two years of tuition free college attendance at Harper College.

All freshmen are encouraged to sign up for the Harper Promise for two simple reasons:

  • By signing up, students will have the option to attend two years of Harper College tuition free, an option that they can later choose whether or not to accept.
  • Meeting or exceeding the minimum eligibility requirements will help students no matter what they choose to do after high school and make it easier to attract other scholarships.

  • Online during the general registration process in Infinite Campus by clicking the “enroll” box
