BOG Fee Waiver Changes – Effective Fall 2016
Once you’ve qualified for the BOG Fee Waiver, it is important to ensure that you are meeting the academic and progress standards in order to avoid losing the BOG fee waiver
- Academic – Maintain a GPA of 2.0 or higher
- If your cumulative GPA falls below 2.0 for two (2) consecutive primary terms (fall and spring semesters are primary terms at Palomar) you will lose your BOG fee waiver eligibility.
- Progress – Complete more than 50% of your coursework
- If the cumulative number of courses you successfully complete is not more than 50% in two (2) consecutive primary terms (fall and spring semesters are primary terms at Palomar) you will lose your BOG fee waiver eligibility.
- Combination of Academic and Progress Standards
- Any combination of two consecutive terms of cumulative GPA below 2.0 and/or cumulative course completion is not more than 50% may result in loss of BOG fee waiver eligibility.
You will be notified within 30 days of the end of each term if you are being placed on either Academic (GPA) and/or Progress (Course Completion) probation. Your notification will include the information that a second term of probation will result in loss of BOG fee waiver eligibility. After the second consecutive term of probation, you may lose eligibility for the BOG fee waiver at your next registration opportunity.
Students who have lost their eligibility for the BOG Fee Waiver may submit a petition to have it reinstated.
