Pennsylvania students are leaving college with tens of thousands of dollars of debt, and who knows how many students are simply not going to college because they cannot afford it? Pennsylvania, which U.S. News this year ranked 50th in higher education, is failing a generation by not providing affordable public higher education. It’s time for Pennsylvania Promise — a plan to make higher education affordable in the Commonwealth. Send your message to Gov. Tom Wolf to stand up for Pennsylvania’s future.

With Pennsylvania Promise – Higher Ed, our Commonwealth could:

• Cover two years of tuition and fees for any recent high school graduate enrolled full-time at one of the Commonwealth’s 14 public community colleges

• Cover four years of tuition and fees for any recent high school graduate with a family income less than or equal to $110,000 per year accepted into one of the 14 universities in Pennsylvania’s State System of Higher Education

• Provide four years of tuition and fees not to exceed the State System tuition rate, depending on family income, for students accepted into a state-related university

• Finance the expansion of grant assistance to adults seeking in-demand skills and industry-recognized credentials, as well as college credit
