The CSU makes every effort to keep student costs to a minimum. Fees listed in published schedules or student accounts may need to be increased when public funding is inadequate. Therefore, CSU must reserve the right, even after fees are initially charged or initial fee payments are made, to increase or modify any listed fees. All listed fees, other than mandatory system wide fees, are subject to change without notice, until the date when instruction for a particular semester or quarter has begun. All CSU listed fees should be regarded as estimates that are subject to change upon approval by the Board of Trustees, the Chancellor, or the Presidents, as appropriate. Changes in mandatory system wide fees will be made in accordance with the requirements of the Working Families Student Fee Transparency and Accountability Act (Sections 66028-66028.6 of the Education Code.)
**New Fall 2016 students registering during June, July and August Orientations payment is due August 25, 2016 prior to 4:30 pm at the Cashier’s Office or if paying online, 11:30 pm.
Due to the high volume of calls during payment deadlines, it is quicker and more efficient for you to check your account online rather than calling. It is the student's responsibility to be aware of total fees due and deadlines.
All mandatory tuition and registration fees must be paid or all your classes may be dropped (even if a partial payment has been made) unless you have a fee deferment on your account. Only the student dropping all their classes, online, prior to the first day of the term, will guarantee non-enrollment. In order not to incur a debt to the university a student must drop all courses, online, prior to the first day of the term which is August 29, 2016.
If a student adds classes above 6.0 units full time fees are applicable and due meeting the above deadlines.
Please Note: The fee structure and drop/refund policies associated with Extended Learning (EL) may have a different fee structure and drop/refund policy.
YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR FEES PAYMENT BY THE STATED DEADLINES.
