  • Address on the waiver must match at least one student address in your Cal Poly portal. 
  • The waiver covers the same tuition costs as the Cal Grant Fees (not Cal Grant B), State University Grant,  and Athletic Fee Awards. There is no need to have both - they can not be used together.

I understand that the Cal Vet College Fee Waiver only waives mandatory system-wide tuition at Cal Poly. It does not cover campus-based registration fees or other costs. This program does not cover the expense of Extended Education courses at Cal Poly. The fee waiver approval received from a county veteran service office must be submitted here, each academic year. Waivers cannot be credited retroactively for previous academic years. Waivers must be submitted prior to the tuition due dates and can take several business days to process and be applied. If submitted after that date, students are responsible for paying their state tuition fees and requesting reimbursement after the waiver is credited. Please sign first and last name in acknowledgment.
