 AGS APPLICATION

Three simple steps:

Step 1.  Gather the following information before you start.
You will be asked for the following information.  The information will be verified by an AGS advisor from your Contra Costa Community College District records (includes DVC & Los Medanos).  If you are relying on college work from a college outside our district you will need to turn in a transcript (unofficial) of your work from that college.  If you are a first semester college student applying for Temporary Membership you will need to turn in a copy of your high school transcript.  (Turn in to an AGS advisor or at an AGS meeting.)

  • Your most recent or current semester's GPA.  This must be 3.0 or higher.  (This will be for a Fall or a Spring semester--not summer.) 
    • There is an exception to this requirement if you are a continuing member.  Continuing members will receive one semester of grace for every semester of earned continuing membership.  There shall not be two consecutive grace periods.
    • You will be asked for your GPA with 3 decimal places.  For example 3.289.
    • You cannot round a 2.875 GPA to 3.0.  If your GPA is 2.something you are not eligible.
  • Your cumulative GPA.  This is for all college work completed to date and must also be 3.0 or higher. 
    • You will be asked for your GPA with 3 decimal places.  For example 3.289.
    • You cannot round a 2.875 GPA to 3.0.  If your GPA is 2.something you are not eligible.
  • Your total number of units.  This is for all college work completed.  This must be 12 units or more.

  • Your CCC student ID.

Step 2.  Fill out the on-line application (after reading the instructions below).

  • You need to complete at one stitting.  If you are unable to complete it click on the "cancel" bottom and come back at a later time.  You will need to start over.  There are only 18-20 questions.
  • The directions or important information about each question is given below the fill-in area for your response.  Read it.
  • Questions marked with an asterisck (*) are required.  Some may need you to enter a "0" (zero) or "na"
  • When you are done, click on the OK button.
  • Do not fill in the "FOR OFFICIAL USE ONLY" portions.

Step 3.  Pay your dues. 

  • Dues for one semester: $15.  For information about dues see AGS FAQs.
  • EOPS students may be eligible to have their dues paid by EOPS.
