Peralta News – Oakland Promise

12 February 2016


The Oakland Promise will establish a universal college savings program and set college as an expectation for all. Beginning in the fall of 2016, every Oakland child entering kindergarten in OUSD will have a college savings account opened in his or her name through a phased approach over three years, expanding to charters beginning in fall 2017.

By 2020, every Oakland student entering kindergarten will have a college savings account opened in his or her name.

The four Peralta Colleges will offer all eligible Oakland students a free first semester – no tuition and no fees!
