Salinas Valley Promise Frequently Asked Questions
Any high school or adult school student who has graduated from a local high school or adult school in the Hartnell Community College District and enrolls in college for the first time as a full-time (12 units or more per semester*) student. Students must have applied for financial aid through either the FAFSA (https://fafsa.ed.gov/) or California Dream Act Application (https://dream.csac.ca.gov/) in order to qualify for the Salinas Valley Promise.
*Students enrolled in fewer than 12 units may be eligible for SVP when eligible for a reduced course load as a Department of Supportive Programs and Services (DSPS) accommodation
If I have a disability, and am eligible for accommodations and services through the Department of Supportive Programs and Services (DSPS), can I also apply for the Salinas Valley Promise in a semester?
