Yes. Both the Cal Grant and the CA Veterans College Fee Waiver are considered fee-paying resources and cover the exact same tuition/fees. Therefore, students are only eligible to receive one during a period of enrollment. The Cal Grant will take precedence and automatically credit to the BARC. The waiver can be applied to a summer program, as the Cal Grant is not automatically awarded during the summer session.
Additional financial aid may also be affected by the waiver, up to the amount of the waiver, including the university scholarship and loans.
The Post-9/11 GI Bill®, Chapter 33 payments for tuition and fees are also affected by the waiver (or by Cal Grant). The tuition and fees that the VA will pay directly to the school will be reduced by the amount of the waiver or Cal Grant.
