Promising Futures

A degree is within reach, with debt-free tuition for eligible adults

Moraine Park’s Promising Futures program is based on the belief that attending college should be determined by a student’s potential rather than their financial resources.

Promising Futures ensures adult students* with the potential to succeed at the next level have that opportunity without the added burden of college debt. By providing debt-free tuition, Moraine Park’s Promising Futures program will encourage more students to make the promise to reach their potential.

The Promising Futures program also creates a partnership between the student and Moraine Park, so together we can work to make college possible.

Moraine Park promises to provide up to 10 consecutive semesters (not including summer**) of debt-free tuition. We also promise to provide additional services including mentoring, tutoring, assistance with financial aid filing, and other support services.
