Fee and Payment Information


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 initial fee payments are made, to increase or modify any listed fees, 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 and/or the Campus.


Fall 2009

Special Circumstances- Financial Aid Recipients

If you have been awarded and you have accepted an offer of Financial Aid (excluding College Work Study) for Fall 2009, you will be given a fee deferment. Enroll in classes by following the Registration Procedures. Do not submit payment or the Fee Payment Card to the Bursar's Office. Do not apply for the University's Installment Payment Agreement.


You must register through Gator Reg (SF State's web and phone registration system) in order to claim your Financial Aid at the beginning of the semester. The Financial Aid Office will not authorize disbursement until you are officially enrolled in at least the minimum number of units required for the types and amounts of Financial Aid you have been awarded. There will be no exceptions to this requirement.


If you are found to be ineligible for Financial Aid after you have enrolled in classes, you must pay your fees no later than July 9, 2009. If your Financial Aid is not sufficient to pay your fees in full, you will be responsible for paying the balance by August 24, 2009. Payments received after this date may be assessed a late administrative fee of $20. If you register for classes and decide not to attend SFSU, you MUST drop all classes by the published refund deadline of August 24, 2009 through Gator Reg (415)338-7000 and/or in person. (See Refund Guidelines under Title IV- Return of Federal Financial Aid Fund Due to Withdrawal).


Note: Refund application requests received from subsidized students whose fees were deducted from Financial Aid awards will be processed only after additional payment is received from the agency.
