Effective Fall 2015, all students seeking financial aid at City, Mesa, and Miramar colleges must submit a free application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or a California Dream Act application to determine eligibility for all financial aid, including BOG fee waivers.
For a FAFSA application, go to fafsa.ed.gov.
For a California Dream Act application, go to dream.csac.ca.gov.
Students with extenuating circumstances, who cannot complete a FAFSA by the deadline, should visit their campus Financial Aid Office.
New Board of Governor's Fee Waiver Eligibility Rules for 2016:
Beginning in Fall 2016, in accordance with recent changes to the California Education Code and Title 5, students who are academically disqualified due to GPA or lack of progress will lose their Board of Governors (BOG) fee waiver. The District has begun to notify students if they are at risk of losing their eligibility so they may take appropriate steps to remain in good academic standing. Students will have the option to appeal the loss of their BOG fee waiver eligibility if they have documented extenuating circumstances.
