CA College Promise Grant (formerly known as BOG)

The California College Promise Grant - CCPG (formerly known as the BOG) is a California Community Colleges financial aid program for California residents that waives the enrollment fees for students. Any student enrolled for any number of units who meets the CCPG criteria may receive a CCPG . You only need to apply once each academic year. The application covers the semester you apply and any subsequent semesters in the school year. You may complete the GCC CCPG Application form to determine if you qualify for CCPG A or CCPG B. If you do not qualify for CCPG A or CCPG B, the Financial Aid Office can use the results of your FAFSA to determine if you qualify for CCPG C. 


CCPG A is awarded when the student or the student's parent receives TANF/CalWorks, SSI or General Relief benefits. You must provide a copy of a current benefit check or notification of eligibility. Students who qualify for CCPG A also are eligible for a discount on campus parking and their Health fee.

  • CCPG B is based on state mandated income ceilings.
  • CCPG C is available to students who do not meet the criteria for CCPG A or CCPG B. All students who demonstrate at least $1104 of financial need after filing the FAFSA form can be awarded a CCPG C. You must complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for CCPG C consideration.
