Board of Governors Enrollment Fee Waiver Program


 
The Board of Governors Enrollment Fee Waiver (BOGW) Program waives enrollment fees for qualified students for the entire school year. Students may receive a waiver for any number of units, with no minimum. You may qualify if you have some financial need, receive Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (AFDC/TANF), Supplemental Security Income/SSP or General Assistance and those who meet certain income standards.
 
The Board of Governors Fee Waiver ONLY waives ENROLLMENT FEES ($46 per unit)*. You are responsible to pay any fees not covered by your award at the time of registration to avoid being dropped for non-payment.

2014-2015 Online BOGW application is currently unavailable. 

 
We will let you know if you qualify for an automatic BOGW FEE WAIVER on your Award Notification. Even if you do NOT qualify using the simple BOGW method, you should file a FAFSA. Many students do not qualify for a BOGW-A or BOGW-B, but will qualify for a BOGW-C enrollment fee waiver and additional financial aid funds by completing the FAFSA. If you are an undocumented student, you can complete the California Dream Application instead of the FAFSA. The Dream Application will gather information about your family's income and assets and will issue you and your college information that will help determine eligibility for the BOG fee waiver.

What do I need to Apply?

  • Be a California resident, or have an AB540 status as determined by the Admissions Office and
  • Meet the annual qualifying income standards for one of the BOGW methods below.

Method "A"

You, or your parents if applicable, must be currently receiving benefits from CalWORKs, TANF, Supplemental Security Income (SSI)/SSP, or General Relief. Bring verification of your benefits, dated within the last 60 days, to the Financial Aid Office.

Method "B"

You, or your parents if applicable, must meet the following income standards for the school year. Your income must be equal to or less than the amount indicated based upon your family household size, as indicated in the table below.

Method "C"

You must have already applied for and been determined to have at least $1104 of financial need by filing a FAFSA. No BOGW application is required for a BOGW Method "C" waiver.
 

Which fees are waived?

The Board of Governors Fee Waiver ONLY waives ENROLLMENT FEES ($46 per unit)*. You are responsible to pay any fees not covered by your award at the time of registration to avoid being dropped for non-payment.
