Loss of California College Promise Grant

Loss of California College Promise Grant (CCPG)

Senate Bill 1456 Seymour-Campbell Student Success Act of 2012 requires that a student qualifying for a CA College Promise Grant (CCPG, formerly the BOG Fee Waiver) meet minimum academic and progress standards adopted by the Board of Governors.

Students who are eligible for the CA College Promise Grant (CCPG) may lose their eligibility if they fail to sustain a CGPA of 2.0 or higher and/or complete more than 50 percent of their coursework. If a student’s cumulative GPA falls below 2.0 for two consecutive primary terms (fall and/or spring), the student is placed on academic probation. If the cumulative number of units completed is not more than 50 percent in two consecutive primary terms, the student is placed on progress probation.

Academic: Maintain a CGPA of 2.0 or higher

Progress: Complete more than 50% of coursework successfully (cumulative)

Any combination of two consecutive primary terms of academic and/or progress probation may result in loss of fee waiver eligibility.

Once academic standards have been determined, the student can lose eligibility for the CCPG for all terms including Summer, not just primary terms (Fall and/or Spring).

Foster youth and former foster youth are not subject to the loss of the CCPG under these regulations.

How to Regain CCPG Eligibility


A student may have eligibility for the California College Promise Grant (CCPG) self-reinstated by earning a cumulative 2.0 grade point average (GPA) and by earning a cumulative satisfactory completion of more than 50% of attempted units as shown by the official academic record.  

Submission of Appeal Form 

Students who have not met academic or progress standards and wish to appeal their status may do so if they have an acceptable reason by completing and submitting a Loss of Enrollment Priority and CCPG Appeal Form with supporting documentation. Appeals that are approved will result in the restoration of the CCPG.

Appeal for Loss of Priority Registration and/or Loss of BOG Fee Waiver 

Sitting Out

Students who sit out for two consecutive primary terms (Fall and Spring semesters) from attending SOCCCD may regain their California College Promise Grant (CCPG) for the subsequent term of attendance.

PLEASE NOTE: If you have also lost Priority Registration, you will need to file a separate appeal.
