Enrollment Confirmation Deposit Waiver Request

Cal State LA understands that some students and their families are facing financial challenges, and paying the $100 Enrollment Confirmation Deposit may not be possible at this time. If you would like to reserve a seat in the incoming class but are unable to pay the deposit, you may submit an Enrollment Confirmation Deposit Waiver request. The waiver request must be submitted by the indicated ECD deadline for your admission term.

Please complete the form accurately, and briefly explain the extenuating circumstances, or financial hardship, that prevents you from paying the deposit. Also, be aware that by submitting the ECD Waiver Request below, you are committing to attend Cal State LA for your admission term. You will be expected to follow through with all admission and enrollment requirements/deadlines to join the Cal State LA Golden Eagle Family. 

US Military Veterans, Servicemembers, or their dependents: If you will be using VA benefits (Chapter 31: Veteran Readiness & Employment program or Chapter 33: Post 9/11 G.I. Bill) for your campus tuition and fees, you may apply for an ECD Waiver. In the waiver request, please specify if you will be using Chapter 31 or Chapter 33 for your VA benefits. Be aware, only these two specific military tuition programs qualify for the military-related ECD waiver.

After submission, please allow 7-10 business days for review and processing. If you submit an ECD payment before the approval of your waiver request, it is non-refundable but it will be applied to your admission term's tuition and fees. If the ECD waiver request is not approved, we will notify you to submit the payment accordingly. Emails will be sent to the preferred email address indicated in your GET account.
