*The GCCPromise supports first-time, full-time non-CCPG (formerly the BOG waiver) eligible students who are California residents in their first year of college. Fall and spring semester tuition will be waived for 12 or more units, per semester in the 2019/20 academic year. The GCCPromise program recognizes eligible, first-time college students based on full-time enrollment in a degree or certificate program. Dreamers are eligible for this opportunity.

Students seeking to access the GCCPromise must first apply to GCC as a degree-seeking student, enroll in at least 12 units for fall semester and intend to enroll in at least 12 units for spring semester, successfully complete their FAFSA or CA Dream Act Application (CADAA) application and maintain good academic standing by finishing all of their courses with at least a 2.0 grade point average. Funds are limited, and are awarded on a first come, first served basis.
