College Fee Waiver

Waiver Program

The State of California will waive mandatory system-wide tuition and fees at any State of California Community College, California State University, or University of California campus for the eligible dependents of veterans. To be eligible the veteran must be receiving service-connected compensation from 0 to 100% and received a discharge that was Under Honorable Conditions.

Most eligible students will qualify for the program under either “Plan A” or “Plan B.” Medal of Honor recipients and their children and dependents and survivors of permanently disabled National Guard members may qualify under different plans.

Please note the eligible dependents are not entitled to receive the VA's Chapter 35 educational benefit and have their college fees waived under the State of California's "Plan A" benefit
