Program and Tuition Fees

Fees are based on current CSU fee guidelines. CSU program and tuition fees are subject to change based on the CSU Board of Trustees mandates.  Program and tuition fees do not include cost-of-living, books, or additional expenses.

For fall 2014, the cost of tuition is $500.00 per unit.  Tuition for the 60 unit MSW degree is $30,000.00.  Once enrolled, the cost of your tuition will remain fixed for the duration of your degree program.

In addition to tuition, students pay University fees each semester.  These fees may increase during your degree program.  As of fall 2014, fees cost less than $700.00 per semester.  Please note that your total fee costs will vary depending upon the number of semesters you are enrolled.  (For example, full time students will typically pay fees four times during their program - once for each semester they are enrolled.  Part time students will typically pay fees eight times during their program.

If you are accepted into this program, you will be asked to pay a non-refundable $150.00 "intent to enroll" fee. This fee will be credited towards your first semester's tuition.
