Contra Costa College students receiving fee waivers will have to meet minimum academic and progress standards to remain eligible for the Governor’s Fee Waiver. This new policy will take place fall 2016. The new regulation will work in concert with the statewide enrollment priorities that will go into effect fall 2015. Community colleges are putting in place more counseling and other support services to help students define their educational and career goals and stay on track to graduate. Under the new regulations, students will lose eligibility for the Governors Fee Waiver if they are on probation for not maintaining a 2.0 GPA, for two consecutive primary terms or not successfully completing half the units attempted in that period. The college must notify students of their probation status within 30 days of the end of the term for which they did not meet the standards. For additional information contact the Dean of Students at (510) 215-3921. n
