For the Spring Semester, Cañada College will waive enrollment fees for students who reside in San Mateo County (some exceptions apply). There are no minimum or maximum units required to qualify. Depending on documented financial need, students may also be exempted from paying the student body fee, student representation fee, student union fee, inclusive access fee(s), and materials fees associated with enrolled courses. Registration is open to all students! To help students determine if they qualify for the Free College enrollment fee waiver and other fee waivers, visit our Free College FAQ.
