Costs + Financial Aid
Because SF State is a publicly assisted university, its instructional tuition fees are much more affordable than private institutions -- as little as one tenth the cost of some colleges and universities. SF State takes pride in offering a high-quality education at affordable prices to students from all backgrounds. Half of our students receive some form of financial aid, and more than three-quarters of our students hold down a job while going to school. Our counselors will put together a package tailored to your specific needs, using all available resources: grants, scholarships, loans, and on- and off-campus employment opportunities.
