Only State-Funded Classes are Eligible

The Chico State Employee Fee Waiver (Tuition Reduction) Program allows eligible staff employees to attend California State University (CSU) state-funded courses at reduced rates. Courses are taken for credit and must be state-funded (so the program does not apply to Open University, Special Session, January Intercession, RCE, ESP, or most Summer courses).

Identify State-Funded Courses

All courses offered at Chico State are now in one common public-facing Class Schedule. This means that if you search for classes, you may find a combination of “state-support” classes and courses offered by other self-support organizations on campus.

Note: Most summer classes at Chico State are not state-support classes.
