Promise Appeal

The Harper College Promise Scholarship Program offers the opportunity to appeal eligibility determinations in the event of extraordinary circumstances.  Extraordinary circumstances are defined as significant events that were unforeseen and completely out of the family‚Äôs control. Examples of extraordinary circumstances may include, but are not limited to: death in the family, serious accident, or sudden extended illness.

High School Freshmen, Sophomores, and Juniors who do not meet the eligibility requirements are notified by mail in late August of the next school year. The letter from Harper College includes information on the process for filing an appeal in the event of extraordinary circumstances. The appeal process opens up late August and must be submitted by September 15th. 

For Harper College Promise Scholars, an email will be sent to your Harper Email Account after final grades have posted. This email will include the process for filing an appeal for extraordinary circumstances.
