The JoCo Commissioners Promise Program Assists With Tuition for
2022 High School Grads!

Students who graduate from a North Carolina high school this year can attend Johnston Community College this fall at little to no cost.

The college is assisting with the full cost of tuition and fees for 2022 high school graduates. Eligible students must be North Carolina residents as defined by the Residency Determination Service. Eligibility extends to those who earn their high school equivalency and those who are home-schooled. Career & College Promise, Early College, and Career and Technical Leadership Academy students also qualify.

The JoCo Commissioners Promise Program is a supplement to the state’s Longleaf Commitment Grant, which covers tuition and fees based on family income. The college will bridge the gap in tuition not covered by Longleaf, federal Pell grants, or other state funds for graduates during the 2022-23 school year.

Students will be responsible for the cost of textbooks, supplies, and program-specific fees.
