Fee Waiver & Reduction Program

The fee waiver program provides an opportunity for eligible employees to take courses at a CSU campus for career development; to attain a credential, undergraduate or graduate degree to enhance current job-related skills.

Job-Related Training: A job-related course is taken for the purpose of improving

  • The level of skill needed to perform existing duties and responsibilities or
  • Acquiring additional skills needed to perform new assigned duties and responsibilities.

If you are interested in a job-related course, please contact our Benefits office to initiate your job-related admissions application.

Eligible employees must submit the approved employee fee waiver form to our Benefits office by the established deadline date for each semester. Eligible employees may also transfer their fee waiver benefit to a spouse or dependent child by submitting a completed dependent fee waiver form (PDF).

NOTE:

  • Extended Education and other self-supporting courses cannot be taken through the employee fee waiver program.
  • During the summer sessions, only state-supported courses can be taken through the fee waiver program. 
  • If you separate from SF State University before the beginning of the semester, you will no longer be eligible for the benefit.  The Fee Waiver will be removed and your bill will be adjusted accordingly.  You can complete your course(s) by paying the fees due or drop the course(s).
  • If you separate from SF State University employment after the beginning of the semester, you can continue to use your fee waiver to cover that semester.
