If a FAFSA or a Dream Act application has already been submitted, there's no need to re-apply to receive the California College Promise Grant. Instead, check your MyDelta Student Portal and make sure all documents have been submitted under the Documents and Messages page. You may even check your Awards by Semester page to see if you were awarded a California College Promise Grant.
California College Promise Grant
The California College Promise Grant (Formerly known as a BOG Fee Waiver) is issued by the state of California and waives the enrollment fees of qualifying California community college students. Students must also be California residents or AB540. The award is not a monetary disbursement to the student, and simply waives the student's enrollment fees based on specific qualifications. Each type of CCPG (outlined below) has their own requirements and conditions.
- CCPG Method A - Intended for students who receive some form of public assistance. Students must provide proof of benefits within the last 60 days to be considered.
- CCPG Method B - Based upon an Income Standards Matrix; please refer to the chart below. Proof of total income may be required. In most cases, the CCPG B is based upon the income and household size information provided on the student's FAFSA or California Dream Application.
- CCPG Method C - To qualify, students must demonstrate at least $1,104.00 worth of financial need.
|Household Size||2019-2020 Income Limits||2020-2021 Income Limit||2021-2022 Income Limit|
|Each Add'l||Add $6,480||Add $6,630||Add $6,720|
Apply for the California College Promise Grant
If a FAFSA or a California Dream Act application has not been submitted, you may apply for a California College Promise Grant by itself. However, you are highly encouraged to complete a FAFSA or Dream Act application instead in order to find the most financial aid possible. Think of the FAFSA or Dream Act applications as an all-in-one stroke of applying for financial assistance.
Depending on the time of year, California College Promise Grant submissions may take anywhere from 1 to 5 business days for processing. Please plan accordingly.
*Be sure to Include Your Name and Delta ID on all documents that you submit.
If you do not meet academic and/or progress standards (as defined below) for two consecutive semesters, you will lose your BOG Fee Waiver.
- You achieve less than a 2.0 cumulative GPA
- You complete less than 51% of their coursework
