Child Care Access Means Parents In School (CCAMPIS)

The Child Care Access Means Parents in School (CCAMPIS) program is a federal grant funded by the U.S. Department of Education to support student-parents. This program supports the participation of low-income student-parents in postsecondary education through the provision of campus-based child care services. Families who meet the requirements of the CCAMPIS Grant may receive a reduction in their monthly child care tuition.

Participation in limited and we are not able to assist all those who apply.

For those who are in the program, CCAMPIS provides UGA student-parents:

  • Financial assistance with child care fees
  • Workshops on various topics such as parenting tips, stress management, child development, budgeting, time management, and others that student-parents identify as needed
  • Information about community resources and agencies

Student-parent applications are considered for child care assistance through CCAMPIS funding on the basis of eligibility status, financial income, need, resources, and family contribution levels.

Undergraduate students must be receiving a federal Pell Grant or be Pell Grant eligible, based on the Expected Family Contribution. A FAFSA must be completed and on file with the Office of Student Financial Aid.

Graduate/Professional and international students enrolled at the University of Georgia may be eligible to receive CCAMPIS assistance pending verification of eligibility and Expected Family Contribution.
