South Seattle Community College

Seattle Public Schools

Every student who graduates from Seattle’s Rainier Beach High School in the spring will be able to attend South Seattle Community College for free for a year.

The 13th Year Promise Scholarship pays for one year of tuition, or the equivalent of approximately $5,000, in an effort to increase the number of underrepresented students in higher education.

Seniors who graduate from Chief Sealth High School in West Seattle have a new price for their first year of college – free.  The president of South Seattle Community College says it’ll give one-year tuition scholarships to any student who gets a diploma and fills out a couple of forms.
