SBCC Promise

In Fall 2016, the SBCC Foundation launched the SBCC Promise, an ambitious new effort to make our community’s college accessible and affordable to all local students who have recently completed their secondary education within the SBCC district. Since its inception, more than 3,000 students have had their enrollment fees, books, and supplies covered through the donor-supported SBCC Promise.

I hope I make my parents proud because I know how much this means to them.
