About GED Promise

The GED Promise expands higher education access in order to help students achieve a livable wage and strengthen the workforce.

Through the GED Promise, students who have earned their GED and have not yet obtained a college level certificate or degree have the opportunity to earn a certificate, or associate degree with no out-of-pocket tuition or mandatory fees cost . Once enrolled, success coaching and career services are provided to all Promise Scholars throughout their time in college.

In partnership with Grayson College you can become eligible for this life-changing program!
