Two Years Free provides free tuition to first time students who are California residents. See how you can qualify.

  • Enroll full-time in fall and spring (12 units required, 15 recommended).
  • Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or Dream Act application for all required years. This is to allow the financial aid office to verify eligibility for any other financial aid first.  There is not income requirement or restrictions for Two Years Free.
