CA DEPENDENT FEE WAIVER

The application is submitted to the local VA Office.  Their website is: County Veterans Service Office (www.cdva.ca.gov).  Once the letter of approval is obtained, the letter must be submitted to the Veterans Resource Center where the Certifying Official can put it in the system.  It will be effective the next business day.  This form only waives the $46 unit fee.  The student must be a CA resident to be eligible.
 

 Due to a lack in staffing, SAC is currently not participating in the MyCAA program
