Loss of CCPG Regulation Effective Fall 2016

Effective Fall 2016, California Community College students receiving the CCPG must meet minimum academic and progress standards to remain eligible for the CCPG.​ 
Students Must:
  • Maintain a cumulative GPA of 2.00
  • Successfully complete at least 50% of all units attempted
  1. If a student is placed on "Academic" or "Progress Probation" through Admissions and Records for two consecutive primary terms, the student will lose eligibility for the CCPG.
  2. The student could also lose enrollment priority through Admissions and Records if the cumulative GPA falls below 2.0 for two consecutive primary terms.
  3. Students who lose CCPG eligibility will have an opportunity to regain eligibility by meeting the above listed standards or through an Admissions and Records appeal process. For more information on these changes you may click the following links to view:

NOTE: Foster youth and students receiving the CAL Vet Fee Waiver are exempt from these regulations.​
