How to Get Started

To start the process, employees should contact the Fee Waiver program email address to determine eligibility to participate in the program. In this communication, please include Request for Eligibility Verification in the subject line and provide your name and employee identification number in the body of the email.

Step 1

Enrolling in Work Related/Career Development Courses

If you will be enrolling in work-related or career development courses only, you are not required to matriculate into a degree program nor are transcripts needed. If you already hold a Bachelor's degree or higher, you will need to complete a paper CSU graduate application; if you do not hold a Bachelor's degree or higher, then you will need to complete a paper CSU undergraduate application. The "name of your intended major" should be "undeclared." You do not need to enter a major code. Contact the Admissions Office at 805-756-2313 for specific guidance.

To obtain a paper application, you may either go to the Admissions Office (Building 172H, Second Floor, Room 2-20; Monday-Friday, 8 am to 5 pm, closed on campus holidays) or download a CSU Undergraduate Application [PDF] or CSU Graduate Application [PDF] paper application. In addition, forms are available by visiting the Human Resources forms page.

Bring the completed application to the Human Resources Office (Administration Building 001, Room 110) for certification prior to delivering to the Admissions Office.

As a reminder, deadlines for submitting CSU paper applications are as follows:

  • Fall: July 1st
  • Winter: October 1st
  • Spring: February 1st
  • Summer: n/a - closed

Enrolling in Baccalaureate or Post Baccalaureate Degree Program

If you plan to matriculate into a new baccalaureate or post-baccalaureate degree program, you must apply electronically via Cal State Apply. Select the "Apply Now" tab and follow the instructions.
