SF State Tuition Fall 2013

In order to register for Fall classes at Orientation, you will need to either: PAY University Tuition OR Have a financial aid deferment on file.

Use the SF State Portal to check if you have a financial aid deferment.

When you log in, select Services then select MyFinaid.

NOTE: Please refer to the Bursar's Office website for the official Fall 2013 tuition cost.

The University Tuition cost may be subject to change pending the California State budget. Once tuition costs are posted, you may pay the University tuition.

The final amount of your tuition depends on two factors; how many units you want and your California residency status.


Part-time vs. Full-time Enrollment

Your University tuition pays not only for your classes but also other services like the Health Center fees, student ID card, Student Center fees, etc. The Bursar's (cashier's) website has more of a breakdown of what tuition covers.

The first thing to decide is whether to enroll as a full-time or a part-time student:

  • Part-time means enrolling into 6.0 units or less.
  • Full-time means enrolling into 7 - 16 units (any more is made by exception.)
