What's New in Registration

 

California Community College students receiving fee waivers will have to meet minimum academic and progress standards to remain eligible for the financial assistance under new regulations adopted by the California Community College Board of Governors.

Effective Fall 2016, the new regulations will work in concert with statewide enrollment priorities to encourage students to focus on their classes and seek help when they face difficulties. 

Under new regulations, students will lose eligibility for the Board of Governors Fee Waiver (BOGW) if they are on probation for not maintaining a 2.0 GPA for two consecutive primary terms or not successfully completing half the units attempted in that period.  (Foster Youth are exempted from the policy.)

Districts are required to establish an appeal process that students can use to demonstrate extenuating circumstances, with supporting documentation for verification.
