Promise Program

RCC and students

The Folsom Lake College/Rancho Cordova College Promise is an innovative grant program launched by Folsom Lake College, the Folsom Lake College Foundation, and the City of Rancho Cordova. Rancho Cordova residents who graduate from high school during the 2017-18 academic year will be able to attend their first year of Folsom Lake College fee-free (up to 12 units/semester for the 2018-19 academic year).

2018-19 Promise application period is currently closed.
The application period will be open February 1 - March 31, 2018.


Steps to apply for 2018-19 Promise program:

Promise icon Promise Step 1: Determine Eligibility

Do you meet the following Promise criteria?

  • Are you a current resident of Rancho Cordova? To verify if your address qualifies, go to: http://generalmap.gis.saccounty.net/JSViewer/county_portal.html and type in your home address in the top search bar. If the property information shows as the "Jurisdiction" of Rancho Cordova, your address qualifies. (Please Note: FLC reserves the right to request official documentation of your legal residence.)
  • Did you/will you graduate from high school or receive a GED from July 1, 2017 - June 30, 2018? (Note: High school location does not need to be in Rancho Cordova.)
  • Do you plan to enroll in Folsom Lake College for the Fall 2018 semester full-time (at least 12 units)?

If you answered YES to ALL of the above, please move on to Promise Step 2.
