Fee Waivers

Fee Waivers and Fee Discounts

To certify eligibility, Fee Waiver and Fee Discount forms must be completed for each semester in which the student is attending classes.

In order for a Fee Waiver or Fee Discount form to be accepted for the current semester, all students, including Financial Aid students, must submit their Fee Waiver or Fee Discount forms prior to or within the first two weeks of classes, and no later than the published Census date(s). (The Census date(s) for each semester are listed on the Academic Calendar, the Student Account Services’ Calendar, and as noted on the Fee Waiver and Fee Discount Deadline Dates.

Electronic Fee Waiver and Fee Discount forms are available on the “My Account” tab on CougarNet. See tutorial below.

Incomplete Forms

An incomplete form will not be accepted and the Fee Waiver or Fee Discount will not be granted. (Examples of missing info…required signatures, date of birth, complete social security number, teachers certification number, etc…)

NOTE: Fee Waivers and Fee Discounts will not be processed for students who obtain signatures prior to the posted guidelines.
