California College Promise Grant (CCPG) is a fee waiver for eligible students to assist with the enrollment fees ($46/unit).
[This waiver was formerly Board of Governors or BOG Fee Waiver.]
To receive this assistance, students must complete a Fee Waiver Application or must have applied for financial aid through the FAFSA or the California Dream Application, and be a California resident or eligible AB 540 student. You must re-apply each year starting with the summer.
Choose one of the options below:
OPTION 1 is the SCC preferred application method.
*See California Dream Act for Parents & Students. Students must qualify for AB540 status at SCC by submitting the AB540 California Nonresident Tuition Exemption Request.
CCPG Academic Standards
Students must meet California College Promise Grant academic standards. All grades will be used to determine CCPG eligibility.
Any combination of two primary consecutive terms (Fall and Spring) of cumulative GPA below 2.0, and/or cumulative course completion less than 50% may result in loss of fee waiver eligibility.
You’ll be notified within 30 days of the end of each term if you are being placed on either Academic (GPA) and/or Progress (Course Completion) probation. Your notification will include the information that a second term of probation will result in loss of fee waiver eligibility. After the second consecutive term of probation, you may lose eligibility for the fee waiver at your next registration opportunity.
