FLAGSTAFF — The scenario is all too common: Some students struggling to make ends meet and who qualify for federal financial aid still don’t quite have the funds to completely cover the cost of their tuition. To those students, such a barrier is hard, if not impossible, to overcome.

Coconino Community College makes those students a promise: The college will cover the difference.

The Comet Promise program helps eligible students pay for their education by covering the cost of tuition when federal grants fall short. The program aims at helping remove economic barriers to offer a pathway for CCC students to complete their certificate or degree.

“We know that many of our students are working hard just to make ends meet,” said CCC President Eric Heiser, Ph.D. “We don’t ever want the cost of tuition to keep a student from embarking on the life-changing opportunities that a higher education can provide. If you’re all-in on the work that it takes to get the degree or certificate, we’re all-in on removing as many barriers as we can to help you be successful.”
