Employee Fee Waiver Application Period for Spring 2017 | October 3 - November 4, 2016

The CSU Employee Fee Waiver and Reduction Program provides for the waiver or reduction of certain fees for employees who enroll in work-related courses offered by the CSU for the purpose of improving skills for existing jobs, or advancement in accordance with a career development plan.  In addition, an eligible CSU employee may transfer his or her fee waiver benefit to a spouse, domestic partner, or eligible dependent child. The fee waiver may be transferred to one person only per semester, regardless of whether the individual uses the full two (2) courses or 6 units.

The CSU Fee Waiver module is currently available for Spring 2017 registration. In order to ensure timely processing, please submit your application no later than November 4, 2016.

We'll be hosting a workshop on the Fee Waiver and Reduction Program on Tuesday, October 11, 2016 from 10:00am to 11:00am in the Human Resources' Training Room, Oviatt Library 16, Garden Level. For more information or to register, visit:
