About

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.

Award Amount

The CCPG Fee Waiver waives eligible California residents' enrollment fees of $46 per unit.
