Enrollment Fee Waiver

California residents may apply for a BOG Fee 
Waiver by submitting a BOG application, an E-BOG Application or by completing a FAFSA application.  

BOG waivers begin in the summer semester of each academic year and must be renewed every year.

BOG waivers are awarded for the current term in which the application is submitted and for following terms in the Financial Aid Year.
However, BOG Fee Waivers are not awarded “retroactively” to prior terms in the Financial Aid Year.
Other fees, for example: parking, student activities, health fee and ID card fees, must be paid by the student.
