BOGW Fee Waiver Application

The BOGW application is no longer available online. Please complete the FAFSA to be determined eligible for BOGW.

Attention Students

BOGW is a state sponsored program, which waives enrollment fees for qualifying students. You may be eligible for a fee waiver even if you are not eligible for other financial aid, which we highly encourage you to apply for by completing a Free Application for Federal Student Aid.

Method A

Is for students on public assistance programs: TANF/CalWORKS, SSI/SSP, General Assistance. It is also for dependents of disabled or deceased California Veterans or National Guard, recipient or child of the Congressional Medal of Honor, or the dependent of a victim of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack, but certification must be obtained from the appropriate agency.  Documentation will be required to verify your eligibility.

Method B

Is for low income students. It is based on the previous year's income. This requires completion of a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and submission of all necessary forms to the Financial Aid Office. Processing of a financial aid file can take from 6 to 8 weeks.

Method C

Students who do not qualify under either Method A or B can receive a Method C waiver by establishing financial need for federal assistance through the MiraCosta Financial Aid Office. This requires completion of a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and submission of all necessary forms to the Financial Aid Office. Processing of a financial aid file can take from 6 to 8 weeks.
