Oregon PromiseOregon Promise is a state grant that helps to cover tuition costs at any Oregon community college for recent high schoool graduates. Oregon Promise is for students with a 2.5 or higher unwighted GPA by the end of their time in high school. Oregon Promise eligibility is determined each year by the Oregon State Legislature. I encourage ALL students eligible to apply...because determination of eligibility does not occur until after applications are usually due.Help Completing The Common ApplicationPacific University is offering HELP COMPLETING THE COMMON APP!
