Welcome to Financial Aid
FINANCIAL AID ALERT – BOGFW Changes
Beginning 2016-17 academic year, the Board of Governors Fee Waiver will be implementing academic standards. All grades will be used to determine BOG eligibility for 2016-2017.
Any combination of two consecutive terms of cumulative GPA below 2.0, and/or cumulative course completion less than 50% may result in loss of fee waiver eligibility.
You’ll be notified within 30 days of the end of each term if you are being placed on either Academic (GPA) and/or Progress (Course Completion) probation. Your notification will include the information that a second term of probation will result in loss of fee waiver eligibility. After the second consecutive term of probation, you may lose eligibility for the fee waiver at your next registration opportunity.
How to regain eligibility:
If you lose eligibility for the BOG Fee Waiver, there are a few ways that you can have it reinstated:
- Improve your GPA or Course Completion measures to meet the academic and progress standards
- Successful appeal regarding extenuating circumstances
- Not attending your school district for two consecutive primary terms
The appeals process for extenuating circumstances includes:
- Verified accidents, illness or other circumstances beyond your control
- Changes in economic situation
- Evidence of inability to obtain essential support services
- Disability accommodations not received in a timely manner
Please note that foster youth and former foster youth (age 24 years and younger) are not subject to loss of the BOG Fee Waiver under these regulations.

Our goal is to assist you in bridging the gap
between your own resources and the cost of attending college. We offer assistance with completing applications
and providing information about the requirements of the various financial aid programs. Financial aid consists of
federal grants, work study, state grants, fee waivers, and outside scholarships.
