If you currently receive the Board of Governor’s Fee Waiver to waive your enrollment fees, you

might want to read on.

The Board of Governor’s Fee Waiver is an amazing resource that provides low-income students with funds to pay the enrollment fee.

According to the San Diego Community College District, students who receive the BOGW are at risk of losing their eligibility if they don’t meet the new state policy requirements.

Effective Fall 2016, students will lose their BOGW privileges if they are not in good academic standing. More specifically, you can become disqualified if your GPA is below a 2.0 OR have a lack of progress such as “incurring multiple Withdrawals or Incompletes”.

If this state policy change was effective in the 2014-2015 school year, nearly 3,000 students in the San Diego Community College District would have lost their eligibility.

A significant prevention and outreach effort has begun to make students who are on academic probation aware that they are at risk of losing their BOGW.

If you have any questions or concerns, a Q & A has been made for students and is posted on the Student Web Services page. There are various workshops being planned for students on campus concerning this change.
