Attend Community College for Free
The Board of Governors Grant Waiver is a fee waiver specific to California Community Colleges that allows you to attend California Community Colleges for FREE as long as you are income eligible.
- Apply using the application that can be obtained from the Financial Aid office of the community college you are applying to.
- Bring the completed application into the financial aid office IN PERSON with a copy of your taxes (if you completed your taxes).
- There isn’t a deadline; you can fill this application out when you choose, but you need to fill it out around the time you fill out your FAFSA so it can be included in your financial aid package. Call the financial aid office at the community college you are planning to attend for more information.
