Veterans' Services - Cal Vet Fee Waiver
California College Fee Waiver Program
Under the California Education Code, dependents of veterans whose death or disability
was service-connected may be eligible for exemption from many College or University fees.
Applications and information are available at the Veterans' Office, located in the Student Services building
at the San Marcos campus or from your county Veterans' Services Office.
Please note that in tough economic times, education programs in California
are some of the first to get cut or cancelled. With that in mind, check
the official Cal Vet web page at
for possible updates of the form and/or restrictions.
