Mt. SAC Promise+Plus

The Mt. SAC Promise+Plus program is a combination of financial and support services to help first-time, full time and part time college students be successful in their first year and have access to the life-changing benefits of a college education. The program provides book vouchers, food cards, school supplies, student success workshops, and more for participating students.

Interested students must start in either of Mt. SAC's online summer programs this Summer 2020 to receive Promise+Plus benefits from Fall 2020 through the end of Spring 2021. This summer, both Summer Bridge and STEP Into College programs will only be offered online.
