If you would like financial assistance, you will need to file the following forms to see if you qualify:

You may pick up the BOGW Fee Waiver and scholarship application at the Financial Aid Office, Admissions Office (both campuses) and the Welcome Center and file your FASFSA online at

How Do I Qualify?

Family financial information is evaluated by a federal processing agency and then transmitted to MJC. The information is reviewed and verified by Financial Aid staff, and the amount and types of aid are determined. Funding is limited, so complete this step as soon as possible!

What’s Available Students may be eligible for:

  • Grants
  • BOGW Fee Waiver
  • Federal Work-Study Placement
  • Nursing Loan

What is a Fee Waiver?

California residents may apply for a California Community College Board of Governors Waiver, which waives the $20 per unit enrollment fee. To qualify, students must:

  • Currently receive TANF, SSI, SSP or General Assistance, OR
  • Have financial need as determined by the Financial Aid Office through the FAFSA, OR
  • Meet the following income standards:

No. in Household
(including yourself) Total Family Income
1                             $15,600 or less
2                             $21,000 or less
3                             $26,400 or less
4                             $31,800 or less
Add $5,400 for each additional dependent.

Veterans and Active-Duty Military Resources 

Visit the Veterans Office. Services include assistance with educational benefits, obtaining tutorial help and counseling, and maintenance of a referral service to other colleges and community service agencies.


If you receive Federal Grant funding and then withdraw from classes before the 60%-point of the semester, you may owe a repayment to the Federal Aid program. Financial Aid staff will calculate how much of your disbursement you have earned and how much will need to be returned based upon the date of your withdrawal. If you withdraw after the 60% point of the semester, you will not be required to repay. If you are considering withdrawing, see a counselor immediately to discuss your reasons for leaving. There may be alternatives you have not considered. If you do choose to withdraw, you may work with Financial Aid to arrange repayments and thereby retain your student aid eligibility. Failure to do so can result in a nation-wide hold on student aid eligibility.

PLEASE NOTE: BOGW (Fee waiver) will no longer waive the health fee.

Note: Fees are subject to change without notice
