Program Changes

Senate Bill 1456 Seymour-Campbell Student Success Act of 2012 requires that a student qualifying for a CCPG meet minimum academic and progress standards adopted by the Board of Governors.

  • Loss of CCPG will occur if a student has two consecutive primary terms (Fall and Spring) of not meeting cumulative Academic (2.0 GPA or above) or Progress standards (More than 50% Completion Rate).
  • Students will be notified of loss of the CCPG within 30 days of the end of the term.
  • Students will have the right to appeal the loss of the CCPG along with Priority Enrollment.
  • Students will have their CCPG/Enrollment Priority reinstated if:
    • Meeting Academic/Progress Standards
    • Successful Appeal
    • Sitting out two consecutive primary terms

Notification

Within 30 days of the End of Each Term

  • Notification will include the information that a second primary term of probation will result in loss of CCPG eligibility
  • Loss of eligibility shall become effective at the FIRST registration opportunity
  • FIRST registration opportunity is student specific, not college specific

 

Exemptions to the new Regulations

Foster Youth

  • Foster Youth and Former Foster Youth (up to 24 years of age) not subject to the loss of fee waiver under the new regulations
  • Still eligible to receive support services
  • Exemption is extended to Enrollment Priority as well

Term Exemption: Summer

  • Summer Terms are not considered Primary Terms but may be used for calculating Academic and Progress standards.
  • Once a 2-term probation has been determined, the student loses eligibility for the CCPG for all terms including Summer-not just primary terms, Fall and Spring

Appeal Process

Got CCPG? Don't Lose It!

If you feel that you may be at risk of losing your CCPG please contact your Counselor

You may also contact Student Services if you have any questions.

Once you have qualified for the CCPG it is important to maintain Academic and Progress standards to avoid losing the fee waiver.

Students submitting appeals to the Financial Aid Office must also include supporting documentation and a written statement. If supporting documentation is not included with the appeal it will not be accepted

If you have additional questions, you may also call our CCPG hot line at 760-245-4271, ext. 2644.
