Our Best Answer - What is the California College Promise Grant (formerly the BOGW or Board of Governors Fee Waiver)
Board of Governors Fee Waiver
The California College Promise Grant (formerly the BOGW) program waives enrollment fees for eligible students.
BOGW is for California residents, eligible AB 540 students, and eligible AB 1899 students, as determined by the Admissions or Registrar’s Office, and for homeless youth as determined by the Financial Aid Office. If you have not had your California residency or eligibility status determined by the Admissions or the Registrar or homeless status determined by the Financial Aid Office, see one of those offices to obtain the determination. Fee waiver eligibility cannot be determined until your status has been verified.
Students should also fill out a Financial Aid form through FAFSA for additional monies they could be eligible for.
