As a result of the passing of Assembly Bill 19 (AB 19) CR implemented the CR College Access (CRCA) Program. This program waives enrollment fees for eligible first-time students enrolled in 12 or more units in the Fall and Spring semesters (it does not include the summer term). Eligible students do not receive a check or refund from this program, but enrollment fees are waived. The CRCA award is now available for students to continue on for a second year with their enrollment fees waived!
The CRCA award does not pay for books, student health fees, student technology fees, student activity fees, course material fees, audit fees, or parking fees. Make sure you check your account statement and pay all applicable fees to ensure your registration and prevent future holds on your account.
To qualify for the College Access Program, students must:
- Complete the online application to CR
- Fill out the FAFSA or Dream Act application
- Maintain enrollment in 12 or more units (full-time)
- Be a California resident or AB540
- Currently not receiving the California College Promise Grant
- Be a first-time college student, or a high school graduate who took CR classes while in high school. NEW: Second-year students are now also eligible if they were also eligible during their first year (consecutive) and continue to meet the eligibility criteria as outlined above.
How do I apply?
Students completing the Free Application For Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or a California Dream Act Application will be reviewed for the additional eligibility criteria.
If you have questions or concerns regarding your residency status, please contact the Admissions and Records Office at (707) 476-4200 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can I lose the College Access Program award?
You can lose the award if you are not enrolled in 12 or more units during each term or if you are determined to have attended college previously. If you drop below 12 units after receiving the grant you may be billed enrollment fees for that term. Additionally, if financial aid information is received that makes you eligible for the California College Promise Grant (formerly known as BOG), you would be awarded the California College Promise Grant as there are additional benefits to this award that are not part of the College Access Program.
