The Long Beach College Promise (The Promise) extends the promise of a college education to every student in the Long Beach Unified School District to create a more vibrant community. This innovative and award-winning initiative is transforming the lives of students and the city’s economic future by placing higher education within reach for all.

The Long Beach College Promise (LBCP) is a partnership for Long Beach Unified School District (LBUSD) students and select high schools. To be eligible, students must enroll at LBCC directly following graduation from an LBUSD high school or one of the selected high schools. Students will be eligible for 2 years of free tuition at LBCC.
