Qualifying for financial aid is not a requirement for the free tuition, the school says. But, in order to get free tuition next semester, students will need to complete either the FAFSA, CADAA or California Promise Grant Application. Select students may even need a fee waiver.
Students who are registered for a minimum of six units for the Spring 2022 semester can also get $500 as long as they submit proof of their COVID-19 vaccination by Dec. 10.MORE NEWS: Lab Experts Criticize State’s Response To Risk Of 'Serious Injury, Harm or Death' At CA COVID Testing Lab
