Fall 2016 BOG Fee Waiver Changes

Minimum Requirements for Maximum Success

Beginning Fall 2016, students lost their BOG fee waiver if they have been on academic or progress probation for two consecutive semesters.

Whether you want to move into a career or move on to a four-year university, California community colleges want to help you achieve your educational goals.

The Board of Governors (BOG) Fee Waiver, available to eligible students,
will waive your per unit enrollment fee at any California community college
throughout the state. Once you've qualified for the BOG Fee Waiver, it's important to ensure that you're meeting the academic and progress standards in order to avoid losing it.

What you Need to Know

  • Academic - Maintain a GPA of 2.0 or higher:
    If your cumulative GPA falls below 2.0 for two consecutive primary terms (fall/spring semesters, or fall/winter/spring quarters), you may lose your fee waiver eligibility.
  • Progress - Complete more than 50 percent of your coursework:
    If the cumulative number of units you complete is not more than 50 percent in two consecutive primary terms (fall/spring semesters, or
    fall/winter/spring quarters), you may lose your fee waiver eligibility.
  • Combination of Academic and Progress Standards:
    Any combination of two consecutive terms of cumulative GPA below 2.0, and/or cumulative unit completion of not more than 50 percent may result in loss of fee waiver eligibility.
  • How will I know?
    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 will
    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:

    • Your BOG grant will automatically be restored for the following semester if you show significant academic improvement. (Complete more than 50% of your classes AND attain a 2.0 GPA in your next semester.)

    • Successful appeal due to extenuating circumstances beyond your control. (see below)

    • Improve your cumulative GPA or course completion measures to meet the academic and progress standards

    • Not attending your school district for two consecutive primary terms (primary terms at Cabrillo are Spring and Fall, summer is not a primary term.)

  • 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 service: There are special consideration factors for CalWORKs, EOPS, ASC and student veterans when accommodations are not received in a timely manner. If you have questions or need assistance, please contact the CalWORKs, EOPS, or ASC offices, Veterans Center, or the Admissions and Records office.

    • The Loss of BOG Appeal will be available in Cabrillo's eForms through WebAdvisor after Spring grades are posted and notification emails have been sent.

    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
    .
