Am I eligible?

Probably! As long as you are currently a tuition-paying student enrolled at SUU or Southwest Tech and have (and must maintain) a cumulative GPA of 2.3. (This means if you have a tuition-waiver, we unfortunately cannot provide assistance). You also must only use a licensed childcare provider (see list above). 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. You must submit your FAFSA for the current school year before you can apply for CCAMPIS. 

For how much aid am I eligible?

The maximum amount awarded will be up to 70% of child care fees and is based on income, enrolled credit hours, and age and number of children. We may have to ask for income verification via tax forms. 

Enrolled Credit Hours:

  • Birth to Preschool Age Children Awarded 2 hours of child care weekly per 1 credit hour enrolled
  • Elementary Age Children Awarded 1 hour of child care weekly per 1 credit hour enrolled
  • Example: A student taking 15 credit hours will be awarded 15 hours of child care weekly for an elementary age child and 30 hours of child care weekly for a preschool age child.

How does CCAMPIS work?

YOU MUST APPLY FOR FAFSA FIRST BEFORE APPLYING FOR CCAMPIS.

Once we receive your CCAMPIS application, we then determine the percentage of the cost we can cover, according to our sliding scale. The amount covered is dependent on your need and how much funding we have available. If you are accepted into the program, you will be 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.

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 participate in a workshop series. If you fail to attend or complete a workshop, you will have to return your award.
  3. You MUST remain in good financial standing with your childcare facility.
     

How do I apply?

Complete the application. The application must be filled out COMPLETELY. After your application is accepted, you and your selected childcare provider MUST fill out a 980 Form, and turn it into our office: in person (ST 172), via email (nontrads@suu.edu), or fax (435-865-8758).
