How does the BOGFW work?

You do not receive an electronic funds transfer or a debit card; instead your enrollment fees are waived after registration activity. You are responsible for paying any and all fees remaining which include the Health Fee, College Service Charge, material fees, and parking permit.

Your Board of Governors Fee Waiver will be posted on the college’s registration fee screen and will be valid for Coastline Community College, Golden West College, and Orange Coast College. If you paid your enrollment fees before the Board of Governors Fee Waiver was applied to your account, the Registration Office will complete a refund of those fees.
