The State of California offers the College Fee Waiver program to spouses and children of deceased or disabled U.S. veterans. Eligibility is determined by your local California County Veterans Services Office. The Fall Program for Freshmen and the UC Extension programs do not qualify for the College Fee Waiver program.

The college-fee waiver benefit:

  • Applies exclusively to fees for academic programs that are subsidized by the State of California.
  • Applies only to UC-systemwide fees. You are responsible for paying all campus-based fees.
