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

Childcare Provider list

Am I eligible?

Probably. As long as you or your spouse is currently enrolled at SUU, you can fill out an application to determine how much subsidy you may be eligible for. Eligibility is based on a sliding scale: credit hours you or your spouse are taking, number, and age, of children, and financial need.

How do I go about applying and what does the application consist of?

Complete the application below. The application must be filled out COMPLETELY.

How does CCAMPIS work?

Once we receive your application, we then measure, according to a sliding scale, the percentage of the subsidy potion we can cover. The amount covered is depending on your need and how much funding we have available. If you are accepted into the program, you are contacted via email about your award. 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 for you.

Then what?

Once you are accepted, there are a few requirements you must follow in order to be 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 participate in six (6) hours worth of REP (Relationship Enhancement Program) workshops throughout the semester. There are a variety of topics available and children are welcome at the workshops. If you fail to do your volunteer hours, you will NOT receive funding for the following semester.
  3. Remain in good financial standing with your childcare facility.
