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 Aid office.

To receive a CCP fee waiver, students must complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online ( 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.

There are NEW Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) standards for CCP for more information click on CCP Regulations
