We ask Promise students to:

  • Meet with a counselor to develop your comprehensive educational plan before the end of your first year. We recommend scheduling a counseling appointment to develop your comprehensive education plan in February. You may contact the Promise Office at 760-744-1150, ext. 3931 or General Counseling to schedule your online/in-person counseling appointment. You may also visit the Online Appointment System to schedule an appointment.
  • Attend at least (1) Skillshop each fall/spring semester. View the Skillshop schedule here.
