SEQUOIAS COLLEGE PROMISE
REIMBURSEMENT - AB 19


WHAT STUDENTS AND PARENTS NEED TO KNOW!

College of the Sequoias is implementing a new program out of the specific new “College Promise” state funding, called the College Promise Reimbursement Program. The new local pilot program would allow for reimbursement of previously paid tuition costs for those students that do not qualify for BOG Waivers/College Promise Grant (Waivers), or for Cal Grants, Pell Grants, or other full financial aid/third party payments (excluding scholarships). 
 
WHO IS ELIGIBLE
  • The reimbursement program is for first-year college students only.  Prior dual enrolled or concurrently enrolled high school students will qualify for this reimbursement program.
  • Students must enroll in, and complete with a passing grade (C or above), a minimum of 15 units per semester. (Units beyond 15 in same semester will also be reimbursed with passing grades)
 HOW IT WORKS
  • Students planning to request reimbursement at the end of the semester must submit a FAFSA or Dream Act application by the last day of September for fall semester or last day of February for the spring semester. (FAFSA/Dream Act required per AB 19)
  • Reimbursement of 15 units or more of tuition will be made upon successful completion of 15 units in a student’s first semester, and again in their second semester.
  • Student’s account will be credited for tuition previously paid approximately six weeks after the end of the semester.
 ADDITIONAL DETAILS
  • This program would only apply to a student’s first two consecutive semesters at COS. (Summer sessions not included)
  • The reimbursement does not cover fees, such as transit, health, student center, student activity, nonresident fees, etc.
  • The reimbursement does not cover books or material fees.
  • Students will not have any option for appeal.
 If you have any questions, please visit or call the Financial Aid Office at any one of our three campuses.
