Graduating Mom and SonWhat is CCAMPIS?

The Child Care Access Means Parents in School (CCAMPIS) program is a U.S. Department of Education federally funded grant, whose mission is to support the participation of low-income student-parents in postsecondary education.


What CCAMPIS Provides

The Medaille University CCAMPIS grant provides students subsidies to help reduce the cost of childcare, as well as before- and after-school programs for your child(ren). Additionally, participants receive:

  • Personalized academic coaching and assistance through TRiO SSS.
  • Access to workshops on various topics, such as career planning, graduate school, financial literacy and parenting.
  • Help applying for financial aid 
  • Information about community resources and agencies


Per our 2020 alumni survey, 90% of Medaille University graduates are employed, with 90% of those grads working in a field related to their degree – a testament to Medaille's student success-focused support. Medaille’s CCAMPIS program combines our supreme academic support and interdepartmental collaboration with financial assistance for childcare. Access to CCAMPIS funding assists Medaille’s participating student-parents in completing a bachelor’s degree, which opens doors to earning higher incomes and enables them to promote higher educational expectations for their own children, breaking the cycle of poverty.

Graduating Dad and SonHow Does CCAMPIS Work?

Student-parent applications are considered for childcare assistance through CCAMPIS funding on the basis of eligibility status, financial income, need, resources, and family contribution levels. Guidelines for eligibility are established by the United States Department of Education, which you must meet in order to qualify for assistance.

Student-parent participants receive a voucher to use for services, and each childcare provider will receive payment, following the receipt of their invoice, along with the attendance record for each CCAMPIS child.
