Breaking barriers. Opening doors. When you support the El Camino College Foundation, your donation makes a direct impact on access to higher education and sustainable employment opportunities.

The South Bay Promise creates a direct pathway to college and increases access, affordability, and success for all students and their families. It focuses on ensuring high school students feel prepared and ready to succeed in college.

The College has expanded the South Bay Promise to provide high school graduates with the opportunity to have both their first and second years of enrollment fees waived.

Open to all students who enroll full time at El Camino College after graduating from high school (gap years allowed), the South Bay Promise also allows its students to:

  • Save more than $1,100 in enrollment fees during first year at El Camino College
  • Register for classes early with priority registration
  • Set an academic plan for success and receive personalized counseling
  • Connect with free tutoring and other academic support services
