Board of Governors Fee Waiver:
The Board of Governors Fee Waiver program is a State financial aid program administered
by the Chancellor's Office of the community college system.
Only California residents may apply. This fee waiver waives the enrollment and student
center fees portion of your registration.
Students who received a BOG for 2013-2014 must reapply for the 2014-2015 school year.
Summer 2014 is the start of the new year for BOG. If you have completed the 2014-2015 financial aid application (FAFSA or Dream Act),
please check myHancock to see if your BOG has been awarded to you.

Attention Students!! Beginning 2015-16 school year, BOG will be implementing academic standards. These
changes may affect your BOG eligibility for 2015-16 school year. Keep checking Allan
Hancock's website and/or myHancock financial aid messages/deadlines for updates.
Do not mail your BOG application with your registration packet. Prior to submitting
your packet, take the BOG application to the Financial Aid office. Staff will determine
your eligibility at that time.
The BOG is separate from other financial aid programs and has its own application
form and eligibility criteria.There are three types of BOGs: A, B, and C:
BOG-A - Recipients of public assistance (e.g., General Assistance/Relief, TANF/CalWORKs,
SSI) are eligible for BOG-A. Proper documentation must be provided to the Financial
Aid office to receive BOG-A.
BOG-B - Eligibility for BOG-B is based on household size and total family income for the
calendar year preceding the academic year for which the student is applying.
BOG-C - In order to be eligible for BOG-C, you must complete a Free Application for Federal
Student Aid (FAFSA) and have demonstrated financial need as determined by the Financial
Aid office. You can complete the FAFSA online at www.fafsa.gov.
