Veterans Benefit Programs
The Office of the Registrar certifies enrollment for Veterans
Chapter benefit recipients to the Veterans Administration (VA) Regional
Office in Muskogee, Oklahoma, and applies the California College Fee
Waiver for eligible students.
College Fee Waiver Program
The State of California offers a College Fee Waiver Program to
dependents of service-connected disabled or service-related deceased
veterans. This program is administered by the California Department of
Veterans Affairs (CDVA).
Benefits are awarded on an academic-year basis and students are
required to reapply each year for continued benefits. If you may be
eligible to receive these benefits, contact your local County Veterans
Service Office (CVSO). This listing is in the government pages section
of your telephone book, under “county government.” You may also call
CDVA at (800) 952-5626, or visit their Web site at www.cacvso.org to learn more about this program.
California Fee Waiver letters of eligibility should be submitted to
the Registrar before the fee payment deadline to avoid late fee
