Placement Promise

The Placement Promise is a true distinctive of Grace College. We recognize that the cost of college is a significant investment, and we are standing behind the quality of our academic process and the resulting product.

  • Must have record of success in the classroom, having achieved at least a 2.75 GPA while at Grace College.
  • Must have been successfully employed in at least one quality work experience related to their field of study while at Grace College.

  • Must have a letter of recommendation their your academic advisor addressing the student’s scholastic effort while enrolled, and addressing the area of focus that may enhance marketability for the future.

To apply for the Placement Promise, follow these steps:

  • Wait until you are six to nine months removed from graduation. No applications will be considered prior to this timeframe.
