BOG Waiver

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. For AB540 Dreamer students, please submit a California Dream Act Application.  We encourage all students to apply for a BOG by submitting a FAFSA or California Dream Act 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. Only an online FAFSA application is needed to be considered for a BOG fee waiver. PAPER BOG APPLICATIONS ARE NOT REQUIRED.

There are three types of BOG fee waivers:

  • 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 Assistance). Proof of benefits received dated within the last 60 days may be submitted after submitting the FAFSA or California Dream Act application online, to be considered for a BOG A.
  • BOG B -- Based upon current household size and total 2015 income for the student and/or student's parent(s). Income standards are provided by the state Chancellor's Office. Proof of total 2015 income may be required. A BOG B may be awarded based upon the income and household size information provided on the FAFSA or California Dream Act application.
  • BOG C -- Must demonstrate at least $1,104.00 worth of financial need in order to qualify.
