New Board of Governor’s Fee Waiver (BOGW) Policy
Beginning Fall 2016 students’ Board of Governor’s fee waiver eligibility will be impacted. This is a key
component of the Board of Governors’ Student Success Initiative. Students who do not meet academic standing and academic progress standards for two consecutive terms will lose eligibility for the BOGW. This is based on new State regulations. Once you’ve qualified for the BOG Fee Waiver, it is important to ensure that you are meeting the academic and progress standards in order to avoid losing the fee waiver.
Students must: • Maintain a cumulative GPA of 2.0
• Successfully complete at least 50% of all units attempted
If a student is placed on academic or progress probation for two consecutive primary terms, they will lose eligibility for the BOG Fee Waiver and enrollment priority if their GPA falls below cumulative 2.0 for two consecutive primary terms.New FSA ID

Federal Student Aid PIN as the process by which you authenticate your identity to access your federal
student aid information.
