California veterans and their dependents should contact the County Department of Veteran Affairs closest to their location for information regarding application procedures or other related services. Basic eligibility is attained if the veteran died from a service-connected disability or has a service-connected disability rated by the Veterans Administration at zero (0) percent or higher. Other specific criteria must be met prior to being deemed eligible, such as the student being a California resident. You may also contact the CSUN Veterans Service Office for information and guidance pertaining to California Veteran Fee Waiver benefits.
Students whose parents are rated less than 100 percent by the Department of Veteran Affairs, or who are also receiving Chapter 35 educational benefits, must turn in their previous year's tax return or a letter from the Internal Revenue Service stating they were not required to file federal income taxes.
