Nonresident Tuition Fee Waiver For English As A Second Language (ESL) Classes


Students who have resided in California for less than 1 year may qualify for the non-resident tuition fee waiver for their ESL classes.

To qualify, you must:

  • Have recently settled in California and lived in California for less than one year. AND
  • Be a recent immigrant OR recent refugee OR person who has been granted asylum

The waiver removes the non-resident tuition fees for ESL classes, students are still required to pay the usual $46 per unit enrollment fees.

For example, students who are approved for this waiver and enroll in ESL 184 F Low Advanced Reading and Writing for Non-Native Speakers (a 5-unit class) would pay $230 for the class.

Many students qualify for financial aid to pay for their enrollment fees.  Visit Fullerton College Financial Aid for more information.
