There are a lot of ways to get fee waivers for college, you just have to know what is available, take the code number to your school of choice, and ask if they honor it or have something similar.  For example, there are fee waivers if you have lost a parent in the line of duty, been a victim of a terroist attack, have ever been in foster care, if you are over 60, if you have a family member who works at a CSU, etc.  The key is to keep asking until you find the right people with the right information.  The Adult Reentry Center is a good place to start as is Financial Aid.
