Oregon Promise

The Oregon Promise is a state grant awarded to certain new high school graduates and GED recipients who will attend community college. The grant is administered by the Office of Student Access and Completion (OSAC). See the OSAC website for current information.

Maintaining your Oregon Promise Grant

To continue receiving the Oregon Promise grant, recipients are required to —

  • Register for, complete and maintain a 2.0 cumulative grade point average (GPA)
  • Pass at least 67% of attempted credits
  • Complete and pass Chemeketa’s First Year Experience class

These requirements apply to each term students receive the grant. Students who do not meet all of these requirements may lose the Oregon Promise grant.

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I use the Oregon Promise funds?

You must work toward completion of a certificate or degree. In instances where your tuition is covered by state and federal grants, you may receive a $1,000 Oregon Promise grant for use toward room and board, transportation or books. Oregon Promise grants will be pro-rated based on your enrollment level.

What expenses am I responsible for?

You are responsible for any remaining balance of your tuition, fees and/or books, in addition to any other school-related expenses you might have. You are required to pay $50 per term toward your tuition. Your Oregon Promise grant will be reduced by this amount.

How will Chemeketa notify me of my award?

The award will be included in your Chemeketa financial aid package. Check your financial aid status in your My Chemeketa account to see if you need to submit additional documentation.

How will my Oregon Promise award be disbursed to me?

Chemeketa will release a portion of your Oregon Promise funds at the start of each academic term. The funds will be applied first to your account balance.
