Fee Waivers

The California Education Code includes provisions for the waiver of mandatory systemwide fees as follows:

Students who may qualify for these benefits should contact the Admissions/Registrar's Office for further information and/or an eligibility determination.

Fees and Debts Owed to the Institution

Should a student or former student fail to pay a fee or a debt owed to the institution, the institution may "withhold permission to register; to use facilities for which a fee is authorized to be charged; to receive services, materials, food, or merchandise; or any combination of the above from any person owing a debt" until the debt is paid (see Title 5, California Code of Regulations, Sections 42380 and 42381).

Prospective students who register for courses offered by the university are obligated for the payment of fees associated with registration for those courses. Failure to cancel registration in any course for an academic term prior to the first day of the academic term gives rise to an obligation to pay student fees including any tuition for the reservation of space in the course.

The institution may withhold permission to register or to receive official transcripts of grades or other services offered by the institution from anyone owing fees or another debt to the institution. The institution may also report the debt to a credit bureau, offset the amount due against any future state tax refunds due the student, refer the debt to an outside collection agency and/or charge the student actual and reasonable collection costs, including reasonable attorney fees if litigation is necessary, in collecting any amount not paid when due.

If a person believes he or she does not owe all or part of an asserted unpaid obligation, that person may contact the campus business office. The business office, or another office on campus to which the business office may refer the person, will review all pertinent information provided by the person and available to the campus and will advise the person of its conclusions.

Students will be responsible for any legal costs incurred in collecting any unpaid tuition/fees and other miscellaneous university fees. Any amount owed may be reported to the Franchise Tax Board for offset against tax refunds and/or from any state lottery winnings.

For more information or questions, please contact:
Rosa H. Renaud, Financial Manager, Financing & Treasury in the CSU Chancellor’s Office, at (562) 981-4570 or rrenaud@calstate.edu.

Over Sixty Fee Waiver Program

San Francisco State University has suspended the California State University Over Sixty Fee Waiver Program beginning March 10, 2011. This program was created to enable California residents who are 60 years of age or older to earn a baccalaureate or master's degree at the university with reduced fees.

Current students already approved for this program before March 10, 2011 may continue to participate in the Over Sixty Fee Waiver Program. The criteria for continuing participation are that students: (1) are at least 60 years of age, (2) have been a California resident for a full year immediately preceding enrollment, (3) have met the standard requirements for admission to the university, and (4) must progress toward their degree objective and graduate in a timely manner. Those admitted pay a $3.00 fee for each semester attended and may enroll on a space available basis only. Over Sixty students enrolled in the program must register on the last day of priority registration, after regular students have been registered for classes. Miscellaneous fees associated with individual courses or majors are not waived by this program.

An application to the university and additional information are available from the university undergraduate and graduate Admissions Offices.

REFUND OF MANDATORY FEES, INCLUDING NONRESIDENT TUITION

Regular Session Registration Fees

Regulations governing the refund of mandatory fees, including nonresident tuition, for students enrolling at the California State University are included in Section 41802 of Title 5, California Code of Regulations. For purposes of the refund policy, mandatory fees are defined as those systemwide fees and campus fees that are required to be paid in order to enroll in state-supported academic programs at the California State University. Refunds of fees and tuition charges for self-supported programs at the California State University (courses offered through extended education) are governed by a separate policy established by the university (see Extended Learning below).

In order to receive a full refund of mandatory fees, including nonresident tuition, a student must cancel registration or drop all courses prior to the first day of instruction for the term. Information on procedures and deadlines for canceling registration and dropping classes is available on the web at http://www.sfsu.edu/~bursar/.

For state-supported semesters, quarters, and non-standard terms or courses of four weeks or more, a student who withdraws during the term in accordance with the university's established procedures will receive a refund of mandatory fees, including nonresident tuition, based on the portion of the term during which the student was enrolled. No student withdrawing after the 60 percent point in the term will be entitled to a refund of any mandatory fees or nonresident tuition.

For state-supported semesters, quarters, and non-standard terms or courses of less than four weeks, no refunds of mandatory fees and nonresident tuition will be made unless a student cancels registration or drops all classes prior to the first day in accordance with the university's established procedures and deadlines.

Students will also receive a refund of mandatory fees, including nonresident tuition, under the following circumstances:

Students who are not entitled to a refund as described above may petition the university for a refund demonstrating exceptional circumstances and the chief financial officer of the university or designee may authorize a refund if he or she determines that the fees and tuition were not earned by the university.

Any refund due a student is applied first toward any required return of student financial aid funds from federal, state, institutional, or external sources, and then the balance is returned to the student.

Information concerning any aspect of the refund of fees may be obtained from the bursar or on the on the web at http://www.sfsu.edu/~bursar/.

Extended Learning

The full Extended Learning tuition fee will be refunded if the university discontinues a course.

If a student drops a course and applies to the Extended Learning Office for a refund, tuition fees will be refunded according to the following schedule:

  1. Drops after paying fees but before the day of the first class meeting: all fees.
  2. Drops on the day of the first class meeting: all fees minus $10 for each dropped course.
  3. Drops after the first class session:
    1. courses of five meetings or longer--65% of fees collected until 25% of the course time has elapsed, after which there will be no refund.
    2. courses of four meetings or less--no refund.

Students should consult with the Extended Learning Office for the specific refund schedule for Winter Session. Refund checks will be mailed to the address on the application approximately six weeks after the application is filed.
