Board of Governors Fee Waiver Policy Changes

California Community CollegesCalifornia Community College Sean and College of Marin Seal

Effective 2016-17

IMPORTANT FINANCIAL AID ALERT!

Beginning 2016-17 academic year, the Board of Governors Fee Waiver will be implementing academic standards. All grades will be used to determine BOG eligibility for 2016-2017.

Any combination of two consecutive terms of cumulative GPA below 2.0, and/or cumulative course completion less than 50% may result in loss of fee waiver eligibility.

You'll be notified within 30 days of the end of each term if you are being placed on either Academic (GPA) and/or Progress (Course Completion) probation. Your notification will include the information that a second term of probation will result in loss of fee waiver eligibility. After the second consecutive term of probation, you may lose eligibility for the fee waiver at your next registration opportunity.

How to regain eligibility:

If you lose eligibility for the BOG Fee Waiver, there are a few ways that you can have it reinstated:

Improve your GPA or Course Completion measures to meet the academic and progress standards
• Successful appeal regarding extenuating circumstances
• Not attending your school district for two consecutive primary terms

The appeals process for extenuating circumstances includes:

• Verified accidents, illness or other circumstances beyond your control
• Changes in economic situation
• Evidence of inability to obtain essential support services
• Special consideration factors for CalWORKs, EOPS, DSPS and veteran students
• Disability accommodations not received in a timely manner

Please note that foster youth and former foster youth (age 24 years and younger) are not subject to loss of the BOG Fee Waiver under these regulations.

If you have questions or need assistance, please contact the Enrollment Services/Financial aid office.
