The State Employee Fee Waiver Program allows eligible staff members to attend most classes at California State University campuses at a greatly reduced rate or with fees waived. Provisions of the Employee Fee Waiver Program are governed by collective bargaining agreements or for Management Personnel Plan (MPP) employees, Executive Order 491. These provisions may change as a result of collective bargaining negotiations. Such changes could affect program participation.
