Program Overview

  • If you're a student at a Harrison School District Two with a 2.5 GPA (junior and senior years), you get a free-ride at Pikes Peak Community College.

    How it works
    If you are graduating from a Harrison School District 2 with a 2.5 GPA starting with the graduating class of 2020, you get free tuition and books, up to $5,000 a year at Pikes Peak Community College. The Dakota Promise also pays for fees, books, supplies, and transportation. It pays secondary to Pell Funding.

    In addition to financial assistance, students will receive intensive support from professional student success coaches. 

    To be eligible for the program, students must complete high school with 2.5 or better GPA, enroll at PPCC within 12 months of graduation, complete a minimum of 24 credit hours per academic year, and complete a FAFSA and apply for Pell Grants. The Dakota would pay the difference between the Pell grants and tuition and fees. Students must also maintain a 2.0 or better GPA to continue the program.

    The program will start in the fall of 2020 for the high school graduating class of 2020.
