Batavia, NY- If you’re still thinking about taking a class this summer through the Genesee Community College Promise Plus program, you have a little more time to submit an application. The College has extended the deadline two weeks to June 28, 2013. Summer Session II begins July 8, 2013.
GCC’s Board of Trustees founded Genesee Promise Plus in 2008 to help remove financial barriers to higher education for the citizens of Genesee, Livingston, Orleans and Wyoming Counties. Since then the program has expanded and now offers scholarships for summer classes to high school juniors (rising seniors), graduating seniors and for the first time - adults who have never before taken a college course.
The three distinct Promise Plus scholarship opportunities include:
- High School Juniors (rising seniors) are eligible for scholarship funding to take one course during Summer Session 2 (July 8-August 10). They may also enroll in the 1-credit College Success class for a maximum of four credit hours.
- Graduating High School Seniors are eligible for scholarship funding to take one or two courses in Summer Session 2 up to eight credit hours.
- Adults are eligible for scholarship funding to take one course in Summer Session 2 (July 8-August 10), and also the 1-credit College Success class for a maximum of four credit hours.
“Each summer since 2008, we have been delighted to offer this Promise Plus to residents in our community,” said Tanya Lane-Martin, director of Admissions at GCC. “We’ve had great response, but we wanted to give people a little extra time to submit applications and be sure everyone has ample opportunity to participate.”
Interested parties should discuss their unique situation and interests with the GCC academic advisor as soon as possible. Those interested must submit a Genesee Promise Plus application by Friday, June 28, 2013. In addition, they must complete a general GCC admission application, which is always FREE. Adults must submit a copy of their high school transcripts.
