Loss of community college fee waiver

Q: I am working with a foster youth enrolled in extended foster care attending a community college. He struggled academically during his first year and as a result ended up on academic probation for two consecutive terms. He was told that he no longer qualifies for the Board of Governors (BOG) fee waiver as a result. Is this true?

A: No, this is not true. New requirements were put into effect this year that mandate that students become ineligible for the BOG fee waiver if the student is placed on academic or progress probation for two consecutive primary terms, however foster youth are exempt from this requirement.


Reference: Section 58621(a)(2) of subchapter 7 of chapter 9 of division 6 of title 5 of the California Code of Regulations
