Financial Aid Petition Deadline is September 26

The deadline to submit a Financial Aid petition for the fall 2014 semester is September 26, 2014.  You have the right to submit a petition if:

  • You were disqualified for financial aid because you did not meet the conditions set forth in the Satisfactory Academic Policy statement you signed when you completed your file
  • You believe your circumstances warrant a review of your financial aid eligibility

If you wish to exercise your right to petition, please carefully read the information below:

Please be aware that a disqualified status will still allow you to receive the California Board of Governors Fee Waiver (BOGW) if you were eligible. Therefore, if you receive the BOGW, your enrollment fees will continue to be waived regardless of your financial aid disqualification status at this time since the BOGW does not have Satisfactory Academic Progress requirements.
