    Hello Allie,

    Eligibility for the Board of Governor's Fee Waiver is not base and measure by if you graduated from a non-WASC or WASC accredited high school. To qualify and be approved for the BOG fee waiver, you must meet the following requirements listed below:
    • Are a student at a California community college, and have been
      determined to be a resident, or to be exempt from non-resident fees
      under AB 540, and;
    • Have financial need, based on a financial aid office review of your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), or;
    • Are receiving TANF, SSI/SSP or General Assistance, or;
    • Meet the following 2015-16 income standards

      Family Size 201 Income
      1-$17,505
      2-$23,595
      3-$29,685
      4-$35,775
      5-$41,865
      6-$47,955
      7-$54,045
      8-$60,135

      Each Additional Family Member $6,090
    Please keep in mind, that 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. If you have any additional questions or would like more information regarding this matter, please feel free to contact your colleges Financial Aid Office.
