WITC Promises FREE Tuition for area High School Graduates


A New Opportunity for High School Seniors
When: Application Open. Deadline April 14, 2017
Location: Superior, Ashland, Rice Lake and New Richmond.

The WITC Promise Scholarship, funded by the WITC Foundation, provides free college tuition for area high school graduates who meet program eligibility requirements. The WITC Promise Scholarship will pay the balance of tuition and fees for eligible students after federal and state grants are applied. Tuition will be covered up to four terms (pending eligibility requirements each term).

"The WITC Foundation Board is pleased to support and fund this important college initiative. We know the college's graduates are in high demand and the WITC Promise will give the opportunity to more individuals to attend WITC who otherwise might not have been able to afford to enroll," said Charlie Singler, WITC Foundation Board President.

"Because WITC has so many courses and programs that transfer to four-year degrees, the WITC Promise will make it even easier for local high school graduates to save money by beginning their education at WITC," said WITC Vice President of Student Affairs Steve Bitzer.
