The Long Beach College Promise represents a shared commitment to equitable student success made by the Promise partners - CSULB, LBCC, and LBUSD.
Together with the City of Long Beach, the Promise Partners support and guide students from elementary school through college and onto their careers. Students earn a world-class education and develop skills to succeed in life.
At CSULB, a Promise student is any CSULB student who graduated from a Promise high school, even if you attended another college before coming to CSULB.
