Fee Waiver Program


The Fee Waiver Program, established in 1975, provides eligible Humboldt State University employees the opportunity to attend HSU classes at reduced rates. The program is designed to assist employees in improving current skills or preparing for a new career at HSU.

The fee waiver information presented here offers a brief summary of the California State University Fee Waiver Program for employees covered by Collective Bargaining contracts and for employees designated as Managerial, Supervisory or Confidential. Refer to your bargaining unit agreement for exact contract language. Please contact Human Resources & Academic Personnel Services for information regarding Managerial, Supervisory or Confidential Fee Waiver, Siemens Hall Room 212, or phone 826.3626.

If you are new to the Fee Waiver program we encourage you to read the Fee Waiver Registration Instructions and Frequently Asked Questions to gain a good understanding of the various elements involved including eligibility, fees waived, timelines, and more.

Reminder: Fee Waiver cannot be used for HSU Summer Courses which are offered through Extended Ed.
