Childcare 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 parent-students. This program supports the participation of low-income parent-students 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 rate.

Participation is based upon available funding. 

The estimated reduction is 25% off of the monthly childcare rate for Pell eligible student parents and an additional reduction off of the unmet need for ICCP eligibe student parents.  

CCAMPIS Provides

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


Parent-student 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.
