In case of financial hardship, CSU campuses allow a limited number of undergraduate application fee waivers for residents of California.  For students without lawful immigration status, who qualify for an AB540 non-resident exception, fee waiver may also be available.

If you file the admission application via Cal State Apply, the fee waiver request is included in the online system as part of the application process.  You will be notified at the time you apply online if you qualify for the fee waiver.

Only California residents are eligible for application fee waivers.


Submit all admission requirements to the Office of  Admissions for your admission review. This includes all official transcript(s), SAT or ACT test scores, enrollment deposit, and state residency documents if needed. Please visit the Admissions Office website admissions.fullerton.edu for the complete lists of deadlines for first time freshmen and undergraduate transfers application requirements.

The EOP Admissions cannot evaluate your application until your campus admissions file is complete and the Office of Admissions has made an admission decision.  Please call the Office of Admissions at 657-278-2300 if you have additional questions.

The EOP grant is a state aid so you must apply for financial aid. You are required to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The application is available from high school counselors and college financial aid offices, or you may apply online at www.fafsa.ed.govOpens in new window . You will be eligible for the largest portion of financial aid if you submit the FAFSA by March 2. However, if you miss that date you should still apply. To be considered for an EOP grant, AB540 students should complete the CA DREAM Act applicationOpens in new window (not the FAFSA).
