Application Requirements and Due Dates

Application Requirements

  • Submit a new fee waiver form each term. 
  • Ensure that all forms are filled in completely and have all the appropriate signatures. Unfortunately, incomplete forms cannot be processed and will be returned to the employee.
  • Ensure that your supervisor signs the Use of the State Time Approval section even if you do not use State time to attend classes.
  • In order to continue in the Fee Waiver Program, you or your dependent needs to maintain good standing academically, which means a:
    • average or better for undergraduate students
    • average or better for graduate students
  • Grades are audited each semester. Unfortunately, if you allow your grades to fall below good academic standing, you will be dropped from the program.

Due Dates

The due dates listed below are for students attending SJSU only. If you or your dependent is attending another CSU, you must check with them for their due dates.

SJSU deadlines for the Staff Fee Waiver Program are determined each semester based on the payment deadlines set by SJSU Bursar's Office. When a student registers for classes a payment due date will be generated and posted in PeopleSoft. See the table below and use the payment due date to determine the fee waiver application due date. Submit fee waiver applications to Human Resources (0046) or email to

Fee Waiver applications received after the posted due dates will still be processed, however we cannot guarantee the fee waiver will be applied to the student's account prior their payment due date. If a student fails to make payment by their payment due date, their classes will be dropped and they will have to re-register.
