We collect eligibility from the FAFSA or CADAA application and include it automatically, if eligible.

If you don’t qualify for the California Promise Grant (formerly known as the BOG Waiver), tuition is due; however, you will be refunded the tuition amount after completing the required units with at least a 2.0 cumulative GPA. The Student Government fee is not waived and is still due for the fall and spring semesters.

Copper Mountain Promise Program will run as long as there is State funding. Portions or all of this program are subject to change as State funding may change.

Institutions are able to determine if students are eligible for Promise Program(s) on an individual basis. With the changes that COVID-19 has introduced, many students had extenuating circumstances, which may have affected unit completion. At CMC, we look at each application and make a
