Partners in the Long Beach College Promise, an initiative that prioritizes Long Beach Unified School District (LBUSD) students for acceptance to California State University, Long Beach (CSULB) and provides them a tuition-free year at Long Beach City College (LBCC), announced new enhancements to the program with Promise 2.0 taking effect next fall.
As previously reported, the Port of Long Beach has joined as an industry partner for Promise 2.0, and has been added to the current list of partners for the program, which are the City of Long Beach, the mayor’s office, LBUSD, LBCC, and CSULB.
The enhanced version of the College Promise will primarily provide local LBCC students an easier transfer to CSULB to complete their undergraduate degrees, according to a joint announcement from the program’s partners.
Promise 2.0 allows LBCC students to transition to CSULB with 45 transferable units. The transferable units completed at LBCC are intended to allow students to complete course requirements for CSULB at a cheaper cost than at the university level.
