The MATC Promise means free tuition for eligible students! The MATC Promise for New High School Graduates

The MATC Promise helps make college an option for students who never thought it was possible. MATC Promise pays tuition for up to 75 credits — after other scholarships and grants are applied. The program recently was expanded to include students completing General Educational Development certi fi cate (GED), High School Equivalency Diploma (HSED) or MATC’s Adult High School during the eligible time frame. The cost of books, program fees and equipment are not covered by the Promise program. Students can get connected to an in-demand career in as little as one to two years – or start a four-year degree. The MATC Promise for Adults In 2018, MATC launched the MATC Promise for Adults, one of the fi rst programs of its kind in the U.S. The MATC Promise for Adults supports students who started college but did not fi nish. Eligible students can qualify for up to 75 credits of free tuition — after other scholarships and grants are applied — to complete an in-demand associate degree or technical diploma. The cost of books, program fees and equipment are not covered by the program. The Promise also provides support to help students stay on track to graduate and connect to a career. For details, visit
