The Board of Governor's Fee Waiver (BOGFW) is available to California residents who meet specific income eligibility requirements. The program waives the enrollment fees, but not the Student Health Fee, Student Representation fee or parking fees.
Imperial Valley College will use the results of the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) or California Dream Application to determine student eligibility for the BOGFW and will automatically award those students who are eligible and who have registered for classes. Please check WEBSTAR to see if you have been awarded a BOG Fee Waiver. Students who have not completed either of these applications may fill out the online BOGFW application in order to have their eligibility determined. Applicants must be a California Resident or AB540 as determined by the Admissions and Records office.
If you have already completed the FAFSA or California Dream Act Application, check WEBSTAR to see if you have been awarded a BOG Fee waiver before completing this online BOGFW application.
