All About University Fees and Orientation Registration


New Student Fees 

(Orientation Fees)

On campus

We charge $35 for students and $25 for guests to attend. This amount covers your meal, advising materials (Including a current Class Schedule) and facilities fees.

The NaviGator! Program, which is a 1 1/2 day event has two fees: Orientation fee and overnight accommodations fees. The overnight fees are per person and paid to Housing. (see the form below under "How to Pay")


Off Campus - Southern California

The Southern California Orientation in Buena Parks has a fee of $75 per person attending.

Please pay orientation fees within two weeks of your Orientation registration. Since Orientation dates are highly popular, it is possible to be dropped from an orientation for failure to pay.


How to Pay?

Payment information for the Orientation portion is part of the online confirmation.

Payments for on-campus housing for the NaviGator! program are managed through the Housing & Residential Services—use the following form:



Financial Aid

Financial aid recipients must pay orientation fees. It is not part of your award of financial aid.


Transfer Students

Transfers who wish to receive an early evaluation of their transfer coursework at their orientation MUST:

  1. pre-register for the date at least 2 weeks in advance,
  2. immediately pay orientation fees and
  3. have all official transcripts on file.


SF State Tution

If you have a Financial Aid Deferment then you DO NOT have to pay tuition. Make sure you accept your financial aid award and register for at least 12 units.

The university fees for Fall 2014 will be posted on the Bursar's website. See the Bursar's web site for information on ways to pay university fees.

Students may register for classes at orientation and pay tuition at a later date.
