How Will I be Notified of my Award?
OSAC will notify students by email in Spring 2016. To ensure receipt of email notifications, students should provide an active email address on the FAFSA and the Oregon Promise application. The award will also be included in the financial aid package students receive from the school they plan to attend in Fall 2016.
How Will My Award Be Disbursed To Me?
OSAC will release a portion of the student's Oregon Promise funds to the student's school at the start of each academic term, and the student's school will apply funds to the student's campus account.
How can the Oregon Promis funds be used?
The Oregon Promise prvides tuition grants for students working toward completion of a community college certificate or degree. In instances where their tuition is covered by other state and federal grants, students may receive a $1,000 Oregon Promise Grant for use toward room and board, transportation, or books.
Will the Oregon Promise Grant cover all of my tuition at my community college?
The Oregon Promise program provides funding up to the state community colleges' average tuition for full-time enrollment. Students are responsible for paying the difference between the average tuition cost and the cost at the school where they are enrolled.
The average cost for Fall 2016 has not been set.
What Expenses Will I be responsible for?
The Oregon Promise provides tuition grants. In instances where a student's tuition is covered by other state and federal grans, students may receive an Oregon Promis award of $1,000 for use toward room and board, transportation, or books.

If I qualify for other grants or scholarships, how will the Oregon Promise funds be applied?
