California College Promise Grant (CCPG)

The California College Promise Grant (CCPG) is available to California residents who meet specific income eligibility requirements. The program waives the enrollment fees, but not the Student Health Fee, Student Representation fee or parking fees.

Imperial Valley College will use the results of the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) or California Dream Application to determine student eligibility for the CCPG and will automatically award those students who are eligible and who have registered for classes. Please check WEBSTAR to see if you have been awarded a CCPG. Students who have not completed either of these applications may fill out the online CCPG application in order to have their eligibility determined. Applicants must be a California Resident, AB540 or qualify for a military exception as determined by the Admissions and Records office.
