Fee Waiver

California State University, Long Beach actively promotes career and professional development for staff employees particularly through the university’s Fee Waiver Program. This program, established in 1975, allows eligible staff members to “learn while they earn” and attend classes at CSULB or other CSU campuses for greatly reduced rates. CSULB employees who want to complete a bachelor’s or graduate degree, enhance job skills, or even prepare for a future career, are encouraged to participate in this program.

Eligible management and staff employees may enroll in a maximum of two (2) courses or six (6) units, whichever is greater, each semester. Fees are waived only for classes offered in the Fall Academic Semester, Spring Academic Semester, and Summer Sessions. Fees are not waived for Winter Intersession or other College of Continuing and Professional Education (CCPE) classes. All classes must be taken for grades or credit/no credit.

In addition to the employee fee waiver, eligible CSU employees may transfer his or her fee waiver benefit entitlement to a spouse, domestic partner or dependent child. The fee waiver benefit may be used by either the eligible employee OR the eligible dependent regardless of whether the individual uses the full two (2) courses or 6 units.

For more details on the Fee Waiver Program, and to determine eligibility, you can go directly to the Fee Waiver administrative guidelines or contact Luz Romero, Fee Waiver Program Coordinator, in Staff Human Resources at 5-8716.
