VC Promise

Tuition-Free for Two Years

Ventura College Foundation’s first-year VC Promise began in 2007. It was the first of its kind in the state and a model for other California community colleges. In fact, VC Promise's success was referenced in State Assembly Bill 19 that was signed into law in 2017. It establishes a statewide Promise program that waives tuition fees for qualified first-year community college students who can now attend two consecutive school years at Ventura College tuition-free.
