Fee Deferments

A Financial Aid Fee Deferment permits eligible students to delay payment of course registration fees.  Deferments are issued based on the expectation that fees will be paid by financial aid.  This deferment allows students with unpaid fees to remain registered for classes, but only until the fifth week of the semester.

Fee Waivers

The Employee Fee Waiver Program is a benefit for eligible faculty and staff employees of the California State University (CSU) system. It allows employees or their spouses, domestic partners or dependents, an opportunity to enroll in CSU general-fund courses at reduced rates. The fee waiver does not apply to courses in self-support programs including Extended Education Programs or Open University.
