The CA Promise Program, known at Mt. SAC as Promise+Plus, is a combination of financial and support services to help first-time, college students be successful in their first two years of college. Promise+Plus provides a variety of financial benefits including money for textbooks and school supplies, free parking permits, campus dining cards, and much more! The Mt. SAC Promise+Plus Program does not pay for tuition. However, 76% of Mt. SAC students get their fees waived by qualifying for the Promise Grant/Fee waiver by submitting the financial aid application.
