Promise Day 2019

San Luis Obispo County high school seniors are invited to come onto Cuesta College’s San Luis Obispo Campus and get a taste of college life during the college’s 5th Annual Promise Day, set for Friday, October 18, from 9:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Students will have the opportunity to learn about Cuesta College's academic programs from faculty, talk with admissions and financial aid representatives and discuss campus life with current students. Information will also be provided on scholarships, including the Promise Scholarship which guarantees a two fee-free full years of college to all recently graduated high school students.

The 2019-20 Cuesta Promise Scholarship application opens October 1, 2019. The Cuesta Promise is the result of a private donation of more than $8 million to the Cuesta College Foundation from the Charles and Leeta Dovica Family Trust, who requested the funds be used for scholarships. The scholarship endowment, created in the fall of 2013, currently saves students an average of $1,400 in their first year at Cuesta College.

This year students will have the ability to explore majors and career opportunities like never before. For more information on this free event or to RSVP, contact your local high school, or the Cuesta College Outreach Office at, by October 11.
