*IMPORTANT CHANGES TO BOARD OF GOVERNORS FEE WAIVER (BOGFW) PROGRAM

Beginning Fall 2015: Students must provide all required documents before eligibility for the BOGFW can be determined and are at risk of being dropped for non-payment until receipt of the BOGFW is confirmed. This is a change from prior years where a student was awarded the BOGFW and had 21 days to submit the documents before having it removed.

Beginning Fall 2016: Due to changes made by SB 1456 Student Success Act of 2012 to Title 5 of the California Education Code, a student who fails to meet the minimum academic and progress standards of the institution for two consecutive primary terms (excludes summer terms) may lose their BOGFW. Students at risk of losing the BOGFW will be notified after the end of the Spring 2015 term and every term thereafter.
