New regulations went into effect in fall 2016 which require that any student with two consecutive terms of not meeting academic and/or progress standards lose their California College Promise Grant (CCPG).
Foster Youth 24 years and younger and students who qualify for the CCPG based on one of the special classifications are not subject to loss of the fee waiver under these regulations.

To meet academic standards, students must have at least a 2.0 GPA. To meet progress standards, students must complete more than 50% of their attempted coursework.
Students who lose eligibility can regain eligibility by meeting one of the following criteria: meeting academic and progress standards, sitting out for two consecutive primary terms (summer and winter intersessions do not count), or successfully appealing the loss.
The appeal process is available for students who have extenuating circumstances.
