What Were the Reach and Impact of the Oregon Promise Financial Aid Program in Its First Two Years?

In 2015 Oregon implemented Oregon Promise—one of the first state grants in the nation to cover all or nearly all community college tuition costs for eligible students. This study shows that during its first two years, the program had a positive impact on Oregon public high school graduates’ college persistence and completion. We provided coaching to Oregon partnership members and REL Northwest Governing Board members on the study to increase their capacity to understand the study findings and make them actionable.
