    Commit 2 Complete Pledge

    Fall 2021 Herkimer College Commit 2 Complete Program Pledge

    This program encourages and promotes on-campus, residential full-time students to complete their associate degrees in two years or less. This is accomplished through individualized attention and a support network of built-in programming for this cohort of students.
    Students accepted into the program will receive a total of $1000 that will be applied directly to their housing charges. $500 will be applied for the first semester, and if students remain in good standing and adhere to all the stipulations within this pledge, an additional $500 will be applied to housing their last semester prior to graduation. Participants will receive academic counseling, career guidance, and a network of wrap-around support programs that must be utilized by students when requested by staff.

    • Be accepted as a fall-start student into an associate degree program
