Hello again Garfield families!

This is Josh Valdez, Outreach Specialist at Garfield for Seattle Promise, the program that offers free tuition of up to 2 years (or 90 college credits) at any one of the Seattle Colleges (North, Central, South)!

We’re a few weeks away from Feb. 16, which is the last day to submit an application to use Seattle Promise for fall 2024 admission and classes.¬†

If you and your student are still looking for an affordable back-up plan, or just rethinking college plans overall, this will guarantee a safe option just in case! Students can always opt-out from the program and that is okay!

To apply and hold eligibility, students must apply to both our scholarship and to the colleges using the links below:

P.S. For students who apply, and would like to transfer to either UW or Seattle University, they will be able to receive priority support services/admissions (and in some cases be able to continue their free tuition scholarship). More information about this in the links below:

Thank you! If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at or call/text me at (206) 661-8473!
