California College Promise Grant
California College Promise GRANT (formerly BOG)
California residents may be eligible to have enrollment fees waived. The California
College Promise (Formerly Board of Governors Fee Waiver) assists eligible students
with the enrollment fees by waiving the student's tuition fees (currently $46 per
unit). Students are responsible for paying the Allan Hancock general fees which includes
all material cost for any course, health fee, and other student fees. If you paid
your fees prior to eligibility determination, there can be no reimbursement after
the last day of instruction for that academic year.
There are three types of California College Promise Grant (CCP):
CCP-A (formerly BOG-A) - Recipients of public assistance (e.g., General Assistance/Relief, TANF/CalWORKs,
SSI) are eligible for CCP-A. Proper documentation must be provided to the Financial
Aid office to receive CCP-A.
CCP-B (formerly BOG-B) - Eligibility for CCP-B is based on household size and total family income from two
years prior the academic year for which the student is applying.
CCP-C (formerly BOG-C) - In order to be eligible for CCP-C, you must complete a Free Application for Federal
Student Aid (FAFSA) and have demonstrated financial need as determined by the Financial
To receive a CCP fee waiver, students must complete a Free Application for Federal
Student Aid (FAFSA) online (www.fafsa.gov) or Dream Act Application or complete the CCP Grant online application. Students
have a higher chance of qualifying for a fee waiver by filing a FAFSA. If you have
filed a FAFSA, please check if you have been awarded the CCP before you submit a paper
application. If you have completed the 2017-2018 financial aid application (FAFSA or Dream Act),
please check myHancock to see if your CCP has been awarded to you.
Students can apply for a CCP Fee Waiver by submitting a paper application to the AHC
Financial Aid Office. The income standards below will be used to determine eligibility.
Do not mail your CCP application with your registration packet. Prior to submitting
your packet, take the CCP application to the Financial Aid office. Staff will determine
your eligibility at that time.
The 2017-18 CCP Grant is good for 3 semesters (summer 2017, fall 2017 and spring 2018) and students do
not need to re-apply every semester.
