Most Sierra College students can get the Board of Governor’s (BOG) Fee Waiver. California residents and non-residents may be eligible. You must meet specific income requirements.

Fees Covered by the BOG Fee Waiver

The BOG will waive the following fees:

  • Enrollment Fee
  • Health Fee for students who qualify under Method A
  • Parking Permit Fee is reduced

However, the BOG Fee Waiver does not pay for books or supplies.

Duration of BOG Fee Waiver

The BOG will be in effect for the full academic year (fall, spring, and summer). There are no minimum or maximum unit requirements.

Eligibility

Academic Standards

To remain eligible for a BOG Fee Waiver, you must:

  • Maintain a cumulative GPA of 2.0
  • Complete at least 50% of all units attempted

You will lose your BOG if you are on academic or progress probation for two consecutive fall and spring terms.

Learn more about probation and dismissal.
 

Financial Information

To determine your eligibility for the BOG, we use:

  • FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid)
  • Or your California Dream Application
BOG B and BOG C are automatically awarded to eligible students through June 30 of each year.
 

If You have not Completed the FAFSA

You can fill out the BOG Application and submit IRS tax transcripts to see if you are eligible. Spanish application is also available.

Return completed BOG applications to the Rocklin or Nevada County Campus Financial Aid Office. You can also mail the application, bring it in person or fax it.
 

Financial Aid and Summer

Summer is considered a trailer for financial aid awards. We may process a BOG application up to the last day of a summer term for those students enrolled in summer. If you are not enrolled in summer, we may not process a BOG application past June 30 for any retroactive reimbursements.
