  • 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.
