CCPG is Simple and Fast

State law requires that students attending California community colleges pay a fee per unit to enroll in credit classes; however, the California Community Colleges are offering the California College Promise Grant (CCPG) to pay the enrollment fee for all eligible applicants because the Board of Governors believes the enrollment fee should never stand between you and a better future. Please note: the CCPG does not pay for your books, so plan to purchase your own books and supplies.

The California College Promise Grant program is designed for speed and efficiency:

  • CCPG is a waiver program and does not require repayment.

  • CCPG is not tied to any other financial aid programs, so it can be processed quickly and you will be able to register immediately.

  • Once completed, applicants will receive an email confirmation and an additional email eligibility notification within 72 hours.

  • CCPG applicants do not have to be enrolled in a specific number of courses. Whether you take one unit or 15 units, CCPG will pay the enrollment fee and will waive a portion of the health fee.

  • CCPG pays the enrollment fee and waives a portion of the health fee for the academic year and summer sessions. All other miscellaneous fees must be paid by the student at the time of registration.

CCPG Eligibility

If you are a California resident, you will qualify for a CCPG if any one the following statements applies to your current status:

  • You have already qualified for financial aid, such as a Pell Grant or a Cal Grant.

  • You or a family member are receiving TANF/CalWORKs or SSI/SSP (supplemental security income) or general assistance/general relief.

  • You have certification from the California Department of Veterans Affairs or the National Guard Adjutant General that you are eligible for a Dependent's Fee Waiver.

  • You meet the low-income standards or other special classifications fee waivers.

Contact the financial aid office if you have any questions about the CCPG.
