Compton College Promise Program

To make a college education more accessible and affordable to all high school students, the Compton College Promise program was established to offer high school graduates from the Compton, Lynwood and Paramount Unified school districts

Through the Compton College Promise, high school graduates who attend Compton College fulltime (12 units) beginning the fall immediately after graduation will have enrollment fees waived for the first year. This means enrollment fees for the fall semester, winter term, spring semester and summer term at Compton College will be paid during that one-year period.
