Promise Programs: Free College Tuition

What is the Promise?
The California College Promise Grant (CCPG), formerly known as the Board of Governors Fee Waiver, is a state program that waives enrollment fees for qualifying students at California Community Colleges. The CCPG is for California residents, eligible AB 540 students and eligible AB 1899 students, as determined by the Admissions & Records office.
Students may qualify for the Promise Program after high school graduation. Make sure to check with your community college as all eligibility requirements will vary.
