Child Care Access Means Parents in School (CCAMPIS)

Program Overview

If the cost of child care is holding you back from earning a degree or certification that will allow you to have the career you’ve dreamed of, our CCAMPIS program can help with up to 60% of child care costs, based on a sliding scale.

Through CCAMPIS, you’ll have access to high-quality, affordable child care and support services, provided by licensed and accredited CCAMPIS-approved providers near SPC’s 11 learning sites. The program also includes wraparound support services, such as career and academic advising and financial literacy and life skills workshops to help students succeed. 

Participation is limited. We are unable to assist all who apply.

Participants must provide the following documents:

  • Applying parent’s photo ID
  • Child’s birth certificate (applicant must be listed as a custodial parent)
  • Student Aid Report downloaded from fafsa.ed.gov

Program eligibility requirements:

  • Pell Grant eligible
  • A current Pinellas County resident
  • Have a 2.5 cumulative GPA and be in good standing
  • Have completed one semester at SPC
  • Enrolled in a minimum of six credit hours per semester

How can students enroll in the CCAMPIS progam?
Students will need to complete the CCAMPIS eligibility application. Submission of the online application alone does not qualify as a full application for consideration into the program. Applications will be reviewed, and eligible applicants will be notified of the next steps for the application process, including the submission of required documentation and enrollment in a CCAMPIS-approved child care provider.

What is the eligibility criteria?
Students must meet all of the following as an SPC student:

  • Pell eligible based on FASFA
  • Be current Pinellas County residents
  • Have an overall minimum GPA of 2.5 and in “good academic standing”
  • Have completed at least one semester at SPC
  • Be enrolled for a minimum of 6 credit hours per semester

Priority will be given to students enrolled full or three-quarters time, in-person classes, and those with at least 12 credits remaining towards graduation.

How will program participants be selected?
An application committee consisting of the Director, Executive Director of Retention Services, program staff, and college personnel will review and accept applicants. Students will be awarded entry into the program and provided vouchers on a first-come, first-served basis, provided eligibility is met.

How much is the sliding scale?
Services for students will be offered on a sliding fee scale, dependent on SPC enrollment status (number of credit hours) and type of care needed, covering an estimated 40-60% of child care costs.

Is after-school care covered under the voucher system?
It is if the center where the student uses the voucher offers after-school care.

Where can students use vouchers?
SPC has identified a network of licensed, accredited and reasonably-priced providers near major campus sites with full- or part-time care, before and after-school care, and/or evening care. A list is available on this page.
