• Mt. Hood Community College to Host Information Sessions to Discuss The Oregon Promise

    Gresham, Ore. - Commonly known as the Oregon Promise, Senate Bill 81 has brought great interest from high school and community college students looking to take advantage of the funds it will provide. Still, there has been some confusion over eligibility requirements, amount of funding, timing of the awards and more.

    To help alleviate some of the confusion, Mt. Hood Community College will be hosting a pair of information sessions about the Oregon Promise, to explain in detail what students need to know. The sessions are open to students and their families regardless of whether they plan on attending MHCC or another community college.

    The information sessions will take place on Tuesday, November 17, 2015 at the Midland Library, located at 805 SE 122 Ave in Portland. The two thirty minutes sessions will run from 4-4:30pm and from 5-5:30 pm. MHCC staff will be on hand to present and answer questions following the sessions.
