Program and Tuition Fees

Note! Fees are based on current CSU fee guidelines. CSU program and tuition fees are subject to change based on CSU Board of Trustees mandates.  Program and tuition fees do not include cost-of-living, books, or additional expenses. *There is no difference in tuition cost for out-of-state students.

As of Fall 2016, the cost of tuition will be $499.00 per unit. 60 units total are required to complete both the Full-Time and Part-Time programs.

In addition to tuition, students pay University fees each semester.  These fees may increase during your degree program.  As of Fall 2017, semester fees total $812.00 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.
