SACRAMENTO — California Department of Veterans Affairs (CalVet) offers a College Fee Waiver Program for eligible veteran dependents. The CalVet College Tuition Fee Waiver for Veteran Dependents benefit waives mandatory system-wide tuition and fees at any State of California Community College, California State University, or University of California campus.
The College Fee Waiver Program is a State Benefit, not a VA benefit. It waives mandatory system-wide tuition and fees at any State of California community college, campus of the University of California, or campus of the California State University system. This program does not cover campus-based fees like books, housing and parking. The student must meet the in-state residency requirements as determined by the school.
For more information on eligibility for this benefit, as well as federal VA benefits, contact the County of San Luis Obispo Veterans Services Office at 805-781-5766. You may also visit their benefits and services page at www.slocounty.ca.gov/veteran.htm or the CalVet website at/www.calvet.ca.gov.
