How to Appeal the Loss of Enrollment Priority and/or BOG Fee Waiver Eligibility
Read carefully each of the sections below. Then, if you feel you meet the requirements for an exception to the
regulations, you may complete and file the form entitled Loss of Enrollment Priority and/or BOG Fee Waiver Appeal. You
must attach a typed narrative of the reasons for the appeal, required documentation, and a copy of your approved SCC
Comprehensive Education Plan signed by a Counselor. Appeals submitted without sufficient documentation will be
denied. Submit all documents in a single packet to the Office of Admissions and Records on the Fairfield campus or at
the Vacaville Center, Vallejo Center, or Travis Air Force Base office.
In order to receive enrollment priority for the next semester, your petition must be submitted at least three (3) weeks
before the start of priority registration.
Loss of Enrollment Priority
Students who have completed orientation, assessment, and developed a student education plan are granted registration
priority. However, this priority is lost at the first registration opportunity after a student is placed on academic or
progress probation for two consecutive semesters or has earned 90 or more degree-applicable units at SCC.
Loss of Eligibility for the Board of Governors Fee Waiver (BOGW)
Students who are eligible for the BOG Fee Waiver may lose their eligibility if they fail to sustain a GPA of 2.0 or higher
and complete more than 50 percent of their coursework. If a student’s cumulative GPA falls below 2.0 for two
consecutive primary terms (fall or spring), the student is placed on academic probation. If the cumulative number of
units completed is not more than 50 percent in two consecutive primary terms, the student is placed on progress
probation. Any combination of two consecutive primary terms of academic or progress probation may result in loss of
fee waiver eligibility.
How to Regain Enrollment Priority and/or BOG Fee Waiver Eligibility
If you lose enrollment priority and/or BOGW eligibility, you can have them reinstated in one of several ways:
• Improve your GPA or course completion measures to meet the academic and progress standards
• Successful appeal regarding extenuating circumstances
• Successful appeal based on significant academic improvement
• Not attending SCC for two consecutive primary terms (fall/spring semesters)
The appeals process for extenuating circumstances includes:
• Verified accidents, illness, or other circumstances beyond your control
• Changes in economic situation
• Evidence of inability to obtain essential support services
• Special consideration for CalWORKs, EOPS, DSPS, and student veterans
• Disability accommodations not received in a timely manner
Foster youth and former foster youth (age 24 years and younger) are not subject to the loss of the BOG Fee Waiver
under these regulations.
