Board of Governors Fee Waiver (BOG)
The Board of Governors Fee Waiver (BOG) is funded by the State of California to waive in full the amount of enrollment fee charged to eligible students who are California residents. A student's enrollment fees will be waived at the time of enrollment if the student is awarded the BOG Fee Waiver.
The Board of Governors Fee Waiver offers three ways for students to qualify to have their enrollment fees waived by the State:
Qualified applicants (or parents, if applicant is dependent) must be currently receiving TANF (Temporary Aid For Needy Families), SSI (Supplemental Security Income) or General Assistance/General Relief through the county social services department.
Qualified applicants (and parents, if applicant is dependent) do not exceed the income standards.
Qualified applicants filed the FAFSA, federal financial aid application, listing De Anza College and have financial need.
