Genesee Community College Expands Genesee Promise Plus Program

Free Summer Courses includes Recipients of 2009 GED Diplomas
Genesee Community College has expanded the eligibility for high school graduates and GED graduates to take two free college courses this summer at any of the College’s seven campus locations. Under the Genesee Promise Plus Scholarship program, any 2009 high school graduate is eligible to take up to two free college courses during the June 29 – August 1st five-week summer session if they attended high school in Genesee, Livingston, Orleans, or Wyoming Counties (the College’s GLOW service area).

The Genesee Promise Plus eligibility expansion includes the following:
  • Students who live in the four-county GLOW service area who earned a GED Diploma in 2009 are eligible for up to two free summer courses, regardless of age.
  • 2009 GLOW area graduates from home-school programs.
  • 2009 high school graduates who attended high schools outside of the GLOW service area but have accumulated GCC college credits through the College’s ACE Program are eligible to participate.
Under the Genesee Promise Plus Scholarship Program, students can take up to two free summer courses at any of the College’s seven campus locations including Albion, Arcade, Batavia, Dansville, Lakeville, Medina, and Warsaw. The scholarship pays all tuition and fees and the student is only responsible for purchasing required textbooks. These earned credits can be used to get a head start on college and can be used not only at GCC, but also will transfer well to all State University of New York (SUNY) schools and most other colleges and universities.

The deadline for submitting the Genesee Promise Plus Scholarship Application is June 15th. The one-page application form is available at all seven Genesee Community College campus locations, as well as on-line at www.genesee.edu/promise. There is no limit to the number of students receiving these scholarships.
