"If we have the 2021-2022 FAFSA/CADAA & the student qualifies for CCPG (California College Promise Grant) it’s already awarded, visible to them on their portal, & they already were emailed an award letter at the my.vcccd.edu email with the information.

If the student will qualify for the Moorpark Promise these awards happen generally in July once we receive funding from the state. The student can contact our office in early July before the payment comes due or can contact our office now at 805-378-1462 to discuss if they appear to be eligible for the Moorpark Promise."
