CCAMPIS stands for Child Care Access Means Parents In School. It is a grant from the Department of Education that can help subsidize the cost of child care.

Am I eligible?

To be eligible, you must meet the following requirements:

  • Must be a  current  tuition-paying  student  enrolled at SUU or Southwest Tech. This means if you have a tuition-waiver, we unfortunately cannot provide assistance. 
  • Must have and maintain a cumulative GPA of 2.3.
  • Must have filled out your FAFSA for the academic year before  applying for CCAMPIS . If you have not filled out your FAFSA, we cannot offer assistance until you do so.
  • Must be Pell Grant eligible, or if you are not Pell Grant eligible, it must be for one of the following reasons:
    • Low-income second-degree-seeking student
    • Low-income graduate student
    • Low-income foreign student
Eligibility is based on a sliding scale that considers several factors, such as the number of credit hours you are taking, the number and age of your children, and financial need. Please refer to the table below to help determine your CCAMPIS award.

For how much aid am I eligible?

CCAMPIS funding is now awarded on a percentage basis. The maximum amount awarded is based on income, enrolled credit hours, and age and number of children. We may have to ask for income verification via tax forms.

  • Single Parents may receive up to 100% coverage of child care tuition costs.
  • Veteran/Military-connected families may receive up to 95% coverage of child care tuition costs.

How does CCAMPIS work?

Please read the eligibility requirements above before applying.

Once we receive your CCAMPIS application, we then determine the percentage of the cost we can cover, according to our sliding scale. We will then contact you with your award information. We will also contact you if you are ineligible or are put on a waiting list. If your application is late, you are automatically put on the waiting list until funding is available.

Then what?

Once you are accepted, there are a few requirements you must follow in order to remain funded.

  1. You must maintain a cumulative 2.3 or higher GPA.  If you do not, you will be put on probation, and could be removed from the CCAMPIS grant.
  2. You must remain in good financial standing with your child care facility.
  3. You must participate in the Relationship Enrichment Program. This program includes a Canvas course and family engagement activities. If you fail to complete 8 hours for the semester, you will have to return your award.
