Registration Now Open

Fall 2021 PROMISE Program

Registration is now open for the Fall 2021 PROMISE Program. Due to COVID-related challenges with hosting students in our residence halls, we are offering the event virtually this year, on Saturday, October 23. Registration is required.

Hamilton College's PROMISE Program is designed for high school seniors who are from traditionally under-represented backgrounds, including those who are first-generation to college, or from families with limited financial resources, and provides an opportunity to learn about the promises we make to all students and experience our diverse community.

Traditionally, the PROMISE Program is an on-campus overnight program, but due to COVID-related challenges with hosting students in our residence halls, we are instead offering two days for you to attend the event from the comfort of your own home. By participating in a range of virtual events and breakout sessions featuring students, faculty, and staff, you will learn what makes Hamilton one of the best college experiences, and discover the myriad services and generous resources available to you on campus.

This fall, we are offering the virtual PROMISE Program on two dates - Saturday, September 18 or Saturday, October 23. Each event will run from 9 a.m. to Noon (EDT), with an optional  personal interview (via video) available to participants in the afternoon. Registration is required.

If you would like to speak with a student about our diverse community, please contact one of the Diversity Recruitment Interns, below.

Questions can be directed to the PROMISE Program staff at diversity@hamilton.edu or by calling 800-843-2655.
