For eligible California residents, the California Community Colleges Board of Governors (BOG) Fee Waiver permits enrollment fees (currently $46 per unit) to be waived at any community college throughout the state. Eligibility is based on your financial need.
Many California community colleges offer online BOG Fee Waiver applications through CCCApply. When you use these financial aid online applications, the data you’ve entered in CCCApply will be transferred automatically, making your financial aid application much easier and faster.
In addition, the form for applying for the BOG Fee Waiver is available via PDF from the icanaffordcollege.com website.
NOTE: while most students lose their eligibility for the BOG Fee Waiver at community colleges if they are on academic probation for two consecutive terms, foster youth are exempted from this.
