What is the Harbor Advantage Program?
Harbor Advantage is a student support program that aims to provide Los Angeles College Promise students with resources to remove barriers throughout their college journey-starting with free tuition for two years!
Our team is committed to helping first-year students (Harbor Promise) and second-year students (Harbor Success) achieve their educational goals.
We call both years combined 'Harbor Advantage' because we aim to provide students with college survival skills that will ensure an advantage in their journey to higher education.
