The CA College Promise Grant allows eligible students to receive a waiver of the enrollment fees charged at SBVC.


Students can be considered for a CA College Promise Grant fee waiver by completing and submitting an online FAFSA application. For AB540 Dreamer students, please submit a California Dream Act Application.  We encourage all students to apply for a CA College Promise Grant by submitting a FAFSA or California Dream Act Application.

Once a CA College Promise Grant is awarded, it is valid for the remainder of the academic year. The CA College Promise Grants expire at the end of every summer semester and students must apply only once per academic year. Only an online FAFSA application is needed to be considered for a CA College Promise Grant fee waiver.


Three types of CA College Promise Grant fee waivers

  1. CCPG A: For students and/or a student's parent who are currently receiving some form of public assistance (AFDC, TANF, CalWORKs, SSI, and General Assistance). Proof of benefits received dated within the last 60 days may be submitted after submitting the FAFSA or California Dream Act application online, to be considered for a CA College Promise Grant A.
  2. CCPG B: Based upon current household size and total 2021 income for the student and/or student's parent(s). Income standards are provided by the state Chancellor's Office. Proof of total 2021 income may be required. A CCPG B may be awarded based upon the income and household size information provided on the FAFSA or California Dream Act application.
  3. CCPG C: Must demonstrate at least $1,104.00 worth of financial need in order to qualify.
