FINANCIAL AID ALERT – CC Promise Grant ChangesBeginning the 2018-2019 aid year, the Board of Governors Fee Waiver (BOG) will be called the California College Promise Grant. Attention Students: Don’t lose your California College Promise Grant! The California College Promise Grant is now based on minimum GPA and course completion standards! (W’s/NP’s) Starting Fall 2016 semester, your grades will be used to determine CC Promise Grant. Due to a change in state law, students will need to sustain a GPA of 2.0 or higher and complete 50% of coursework to maintain CC Promise Grant eligibility. If your GPA falls below a 2.0 and/or cumulative course completion is less than 50% for two consecutive primary terms (fall/spring), you may lose your CC Promise Grant. Please visit the Financial Aid or Counseling Office to find out more about how you can keep your education on track. You can also make an appointment to see a counselor by calling: 530-661-5703 or by scheduling an appointment online through WebAdvisor.
