Dependent Fee Waiver (Tuition Reduction) Option

Eligible employees may transfer their fee waiver benefit to their spouse, domestic partner or a dependent child. (Each employee must submit a dependent fee waiver app for every term to be applied.)

Student Financial Aid may be affected by the use of fee waiver. Contact the Financial Aid and Scholarship Office at the campus that your dependent is attending to see how financial aid will be affected by participation in the Fee Waiver Program. At Chico State, the number is 530-898-6451.

  • Employee submits a timely Fee Waiver (Tuition Reduction) Application for Dependents(opens in new window) (PDF) to Human Resources through Adobe during the appropriate fee waiver application period.  One application per term of enrollment.
  • The campus fee waiver coordinator determines eligibility and approves application through Adobe.
