The Hagerstown Community College’s (HCC) Promise Pathway Program provides financial assistance and academic guidance to students before they start college. Students living in Washington County can apply to the program as early as sixth grade, as program “prospects.” The Promise Pathway Program has a two-tiered application process. Washington County students can apply as early as sixth grade to become prospects. Prospect applicants will need to do well in school to be admitted to the program as prospects. Prospects will not receive the financial support promise until 10th grade or later, when prospect students are invited to apply for a Promise Scholarship through the HCC Foundation. If accepted, prospect students will transition to Promise Pathway Program scholarship students and awarded early admission status into an HCC program of study. The above information is taken from the Program’s website.
