Board of Governors Enrollment Fee Waiver (BOG)
The BOG program allows eligible students to receive a waiver of the enrollment fees charged at SBVC.
Students can be considered for a BOG waiver by completing and submitting an online FAFSA application. We encourage all students to apply for a BOG by submitting a FAFSA application. Once a BOG is awarded, it is valid for the remainder of the academic year. BOG's expire at the end of every summer semester and students must apply only once per academic year.
There are three types of BOG:
- BOG A-- For students and/or a student's parent who are currently receiving some form of public assistance (AFDC, TANF, CalWORKs, SSI, and General Relief). Proof of cash benefits for the current or previous month must be provided at the time of application to be considered for a BOG A. A BOG A cannot be awarded by filing a FAFSA.
- BOG B -- Based upon current household size and total 2013 income for the student and/or student's parent(s). Income standards are provided by the state Chancellor's Office. Proof of total 2013 income may be required. A BOG B may be awarded based upon the income and household size information provided on the FAFSA.
- BOG C -- Must demonstrate at least $1,104.00 worth of financial need in order to qualify, effective beginning with the Fall 2012 semester.
