CSU Student Fee Waivers
Under current law, there are three state-mandated fee waiver programs: the CSU California Veteran
Waiver for children of disabled/deceased veterans (Education Code 66025.3), the Alan Pattee Waiver
for dependents of deceased law enforcement or fire suppression personnel (Education Code 68120),
and the fee waiver for California residents who were dependents of victims killed in the
September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks (Education Code 68121). In addition to state-mandated fee
waiver programs, other fee waiver programs have been established by CSU Board of Trustees policy,
California statute, and collective bargaining agreements that include programs for high school
students, California residents age 60 years and older, and CSU employees and employee dependents.
The state has not provided General Fund support to fund CSU fee waiver programs since fiscal year
1992/93. However, the CSU has used a portion of funds from enrollment growth and fee increase
revenue to support increases in the number of students eligible for state-mandated fee waivers.
