Cal Vet Fee Waiver
For undergraduate students, the Cal Vet Fee Waiver runs for one academic year (i.e. Fall 2019 through Summer 2020). The Cal Vet Fee Waiver must be renewed each academic year. If you return to the same county office you originally filed, you only need to bring your tax form from the previous year (either your tax return or the statement of non-filing) and the application for that year (https://www.calvet.ca.gov/VetServices/pages/college-fee-waiver.aspx). If you go to a NEW county office, please bring a copy of your birth certificate to show the relationship to the veteran, the veterans DD 214, the disability rating as granted by the VA, your tax form, and the application for that year (https://www.calvet.ca.gov/VetServices/pages/college-fee-waiver.aspx). We recommend you complete this process between May and June to guarantee that the waiver is applied before your fees are due for the fall quarter. Please contact our office for any further questions.
Chapter 33 (Post 9/11 GI Bill ®), Chapter 35 (Survivors DEA), and Chapter 31 (Voc Rehab)
In order to continue using federal benefits (Ch 33, 35, or 31), students MUST complete an Academic Plan Form each quarter and receive a signature from their advisor. Due dates for this form are detailed on our calendar. Please see the picture below if you have questions about how to complete the form. Please contact our office for any further questions.
Chapter 1606: Reserve GI Bill®
In order to continue receiving benefits for the Chapter 1606, you must submit a quarterly APF (as shown above) AND complete a monthly confirmation that you are still a student. There are two ways to do this:
- Web Automated Verification of Enrollment (https://www.gibill.va.gov/wave/login.do)
- Call the VA toll free Interactive Voice Response (IVR) telephone line at 1-877-VA-ECERT (1-877-823-2378) to verify your attendance.
