About Willamette Promise

Tools for teachers and students to succeed together

Expands Access

Willamette Promise gets accelerated credit opportunities into more schools, deploys more teachers and reaches more students.


WOU faculty work directly with K-12 educators in Professional Learning Communities to bring college rigor to high school classrooms.

Affordable and Sustainable

WP is sustained by ADM fees from K-12 school districts and Student Success and Completion Model funds from HECC.

Meet Our Team

We seek to build each student’s confidence in his or her ability to succeed in college by awarding college credit when a student demonstrates college-level learning as defined by college faculty.
