California College Promise Grant (Formerly known as the Board of Governors Fee Waiver or BOG Fee Waiver)
The BOG Fee Waiver program has changed it's name to the California College Promise Grant. The general criteria has not changed and the program will still provide the same benefits to approximately 1 million students in California. For more information on why the program has changed it's name, you can read the following press release.
State law requires that students attending California Community Colleges pay an enrollment fee and a health fee. Students enrolled in credit classes at Grossmont College are required to pay a $46.00 per unit enrollment fee, an $20.00 per semester health fee and a maximum of $1.00 per semester Student Representation fee. The California College Promise Grant program provides three ways to help low income students pay fees and the eligibility requirements for each program are listed below.
If an application for the California College Promise Grant has not been processed by the time of your registration, fees will be charged and a refund will be made upon approval of the application. Please note that refunds are not retroactive to a prior semester. In other words, if your fee waiver is processed and approved after the end of the term for which you are being charged fees, then you are not eligible for a refund. All students must ensure that their fee waiver application is processed and approved before the end of the term (the close of each term is published in the academic calendar in the Grossmont College Catalog).
The California College Promise Grant is generally awarded for up to twelve months (fall, spring and summer), assuming you are meeting the academic requirements outlined above. Students need to reapply for the California College Promise Grant fee waiver every new academic year.
DROP FOR NON-PAYMENT: students who have a 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 California College Promise Grant.
All three Fee Waiver Methods cover the enrollment fee and the parking fee (in excess of $20.00). The health fee will only be waived for Method A recipients. Method B & C recipients will be required to pay the $20 Health Fee. All recipients are still required to pay for the Student Representation Fee and any miscellaneous class or library fees.
Be a California resident, eligible under the provisions of the California Dream Act or eligible under AB 1899.
