The King’s Promise Program Waiver

  • Eligible students who are not "employed" as defined within King's Promise Requirements within six months after graduation, that is the date after having completed all program requirements (not convocation date), and who have met all The King’s Promise Program requirements will qualify to receive the King’s Promise Program Waiver.
    • If extenuating circumstances arise during the six-month meaningful employment search period, students must request an extension in writing to the King’s Promise Program Coordinator/Advisor, as soon as possible. Requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
  • Students who qualify for the King’s Promise Program Waiver are eligible to receive up to five undergraduate credits of tuition offered by King’s along with career support. Course work must be completed within one calendar year from the start of the first term in which the Waiver is initially awarded and cannot be transferred or deferred. Students are responsible for all remaining charges and fees that may be assessed for each academic term that they are covered by the waiver.
  • Students who are eligible for the King’s Promise Program Waiver will be responsible for ensuring their own admission/re-admission/transfer to an undergraduate program and must adhere to all King’s University College registration policies and procedures.

Discontinuance from the Program

  • Students who do not satisfactorily complete all required tasks in a The King’s Promise year within the required timeframe will be removed from the waiver program.
  • Students who are found to misrepresent their involvement in tasks will be removed from the program and will no longer be eligible to qualify for the tuition waiver.
  • Students who are eligible for the King’s Promise Waiver  but do not complete degree and The King’s Promise Program requirements within five years or do not achieve a minimum 75% GPA at degree completion will become ineligible for the waiver.
  • Students who are found to have violated the Student Code of Conduct and/or academic misconduct policies may be subject to removal from the program and may no longer be eligible to participate in The King’s Promise Program.
  • The King’s Promise Program Advisor will notify students in writing of their removal from the program. Students wishing to appeal may do so in writing to the King’s Promise Program Coordinator within 30 days of the removal letter being issued.

The King’s Promise Enhancement Program (for those who do not qualify for Waiver)

  • The King’s Promise Advisor recognizes the benefits of the King’s Promise Program for all students pursuing an undergraduate degree. Students who do not meet the eligibility requirements may still participate in the King’s Promise Enhancement Program.
  • Students participating in the King’s Promise Enhancement Program relinquish all claims to the King’s Promise Program Waiver.
  • The King’s Promise Advisor will provide the same level of service to all students whether they qualify for the waiver or not.
