BOG Fee Waiver

California residents may be eligible to have enrollment fees waived. The California Board of Governors Fee Waiver (BOGW) assists eligible students with the enrollment fees by waiving the student's tuition fees (currently $46 per unit). Students are responsible for paying the MJC general fees which includes all material cost for any course.

To receive a BOG fee waiver, students must complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online ( or complete the BOG fee waiver paper application.

    • Students can apply for a BOG Fee Waiver by submitting a paper application to the MJC Financial Aid Office. The income standards below will be used to determine eligibility.
    • Students can also apply for fee waiver by filing a FAFSA online. Students have a higher chance of qualifying for a fee waiver by filing a FAFSA. If you have filed a FAFSA, please check if you have been awarded the BOG Fee Waiver before you submit a paper application.
    • The BOG Fee Waiver is good for 3 semesters and students do not need to re-apply every semester.
