Can I use my Cal-Vet Fee Waiver for programs/courses taken through the College of Professional and Global Education?

The Cal-Vet Fee Waiver only waives state-wide mandated fees. Self-support (extension) fees are not waived. Therefore, the Cal-Vet Fee Waiver cannot be used for any program or courses offered by the College of Professional and Global Education, including Open University courses. Contact the Veterans Resource Center staff at (323) 343-5080 to inquire about educational programs that qualify under the Cal-Vet fee waiver program at Cal State LA.
