Enrollment Fee Waiver Program

Board of Governors Fee Waiver (BOGW)

To apply on-line for a BOG Waiver application for Grossmont College, students must now access WebAdvisor and sign in using their WebAdvisor user id and password.

On-line fee waiver application

State law requires that students attending California Community Colleges pay an enrollment fee and a health fee.  Beginning Fall 2012, students enrolled in credit classes at Grossmont College are required to pay a $46.00 per unit enrollment fee, an $18.00 per semester health fee and a maximum of $1.00 per semester Student Representation fee.

The Board of Governors Fee Waiver Program provides three ways to help low income students pay fees.  The eligibility requirements for each program are listed below.  If applications have not been processed for the Board of Governors Waiver by the time of registration, fees will be charged and a refund will be made upon approval of the application.  Please note that refunds are not retroactive to the prior semester.  The Board of Governors Waiver is awarded for up to twelve months: fall, spring and summer and students need to reapply every fall.

DROP FOR NON-PAYMENT: students who have a BOG Fee Waiver will not be dropped for non-payment of fees.  However, students should check with the College Cashier to ensure that they don't owe any miscellaneous fees.  It is the student's responsibility to pay any outstanding balance due that is not covered by the BOG Fee Waiver.

All three BOG Methods cover the enrollment fee and the parking fee (in excess of $20.00).  The health fee will only be waived for BOG A recipients.  BOG B & C recipients will be required to pay the $18 health fee.  All BOG recipients are still required to pay for the Student Representation Fee and any miscellaneous class or library fees.
