Promise Appeal

The Harper College Promise Scholarship Program offers the opportunity to appeal eligibility determinations in the event of extraordinary circumstances. 

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.

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.
