  • California College Promise Grant (CCPG)

    The California College Promise Grant (formerly know as the Board of Governors Fee Waiver -BOG):

    Maintaining Academic Standards:

    Students must maintain academic standards for continued eligibility for the California College Promise Grant.  Note, these standards are different and separate from federal student aid's Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP).

    The academic and progress standards for the CCPG are:

    • Academic standards: Cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher.
    • Progress standards: Cumulative satisfactory completion of more than 50% of all coursework attempted.

    Students who do not meet the standards listed above for two consecutive primary semesters (fall and spring) will lose eligibility for the CC Promise Grant. If you become ineligible for the CC Promise Grant, you will be notified within 30 days after the end of the semester. The college will send a communication to those students who failed to meet the standards for two consecutive primary semesters and will include instructions on how to appeal loss of the CC Promise Grant. Please note that this appeal is separate from any appeal for federal student aid, and the approval of one appeal will not mean the automatic approval of the other.

    If you need more information, please contact the Financial Aid Office. 

  • First Time + Full Time = Free Tuition (FT3)

    Here's how it works:

    • Be a first-time college student
    • Enroll in a minimum of 12 units
    • Be a California resident or otherwise exempt from paying non-resident tuition fees (e.g. AB540)
    • Complete the FT3 Promise Pledge
    • Complete the Federal Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or California Dream Act application
    • To maintain eligibility for future terms, students must complete a minimum of 12 units per term with a GPA of 2.0 or higher and complete the FAFSA or California Dream Act application each academic year
    • Your award will be applied to your account after the end of each academic term (fall and spring terms only).

    Once you have successfully completed a term, we will automatically enroll you in the program again for the next primary term  (and so on).  When you complete 12 units with a 2.0 GPA again, you will earn another refund of your tuition fees. It's that easy to receive free tuition for up to two academic years with us!

    The FT3 is a two-year program, so you may be eligible to receive free tuition through the end of your second academic year of college. An "academic year" is defined as a fall term followed by a spring term. So, students who begin taking classes in the fall term may be eligible to receive funding for up to four consecutive terms, while students who start in the spring may be eligible for up to three consecutive terms. As long as you meet the FT3 requirements each term, 4CD will automatically enroll you in FT3 through the end of your second academic year of college. Your award will be applied to your account after the end of each term.
