California College Promise Grant Fee Waiver
California College Promise Grant can help you pay for your college education.
The California College Promise Grant (CCPG) permits enrollment fees to be waived for eligible California residents.
CCPG gets awarded based on financial need when a student is determined a California resident or exempt from non-resident fees under the California Dream Act.
Financial need is determined by factors such as your parent’s income and household size for dependent students. For independent students, it is the student (and spouse’s) income and household size. Apply by completing a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or California Dream Act Application (CADAA) to be considered for the CCPG Fee Waiver and other financial aid. Sustain a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher and have a cumulative completion rate of more than 50 percent of the coursework you attempt. Drops, withdrawals and failing grades all affect your completion rate.
The CCPG Fee Waiver waives eligible California residents' enrollment fees of $46 per unit.
More financial aid programs are available.
