Students Must:


  • Maintain a cumulative GPA of 2.00
  • Successfully complete at least 50% of all units attempted
  1. If a student is placed on "Academic" or "Progress Probation" through Admissions and Records for two consecutive primary terms, the student will lose eligibility for the BOG Fee Waiver.
  2. The student could also lose enrollment priority through Admissions and Records if the cumulative GPA falls below 2.0 for two consecutive primary terms.
  3. Students who lose BOG Fee Waiver eligibility will have an opportunity to regain eligibility by meeting the above listed standards or through an Admissions and Records appeal process.

What is the BOGFW?
The Board of Governors Fee Waiver (BOGFW) is available to California residents. The BOGFW will waive the per unit enrollment fee for eligible students. If you are awarded the BOG Fee Waiver you will still be responsible to pay the campus center, health fee and any material fees at the time of registration. 
Was I approved for the BOGFW?
Once your application is approved the BOGFW will be posted to ​your student account, and will be added to your Financial Aid Award Letter, which you may view via your My Shasta account online.  If you apply by mail or by using the electronic application you will receive an email notification regarding your eligibility.

NOTE: The BOGFW will be listed as "PENDING" in "My Shasta" under Financial Aid by Year. This is an internal​ code, the BOGFW IS ACTIVE and READY to waive the per unit enrollment fee.

If you qualify for the Bog Fee Waiver, you may also qualify for EOPS, an academic support program that offers services to help you succeed in college. Click Here for more information on the EOPS program.
