Q: I am planning to attend community college in the fall. I qualified for the Board of Governor’s (BOG) fee waiver but was told I have to pay an Associated Student Fee and Health Services fee. Do I need to pay these even if I am getting the BOG fee waiver?
A: YES. It is very important that you pay these fees by the due date indicated. In addition to course enrollment fees, many colleges have nominal health and/or student activity fees and these fees are typically not covered by the BOG fee waiver. Disenrollment may occur after registration if fees have not been paid within a certain timeframe. Check with the college admissions office for relevant deadlines.
