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.


Important Information:

State University Fee: The CSU Board of Trustees at its June 18, 2010 meeting approved a 5% increase to the State University Fee for undergraduate, graduate, and credential students that is effective with the Fall 2010 semester.


MBA Professional Fee: The CSU Board of Trustees at its June 18, 2010 meeting approved a 5% increase to the graduate professional fee for state-supported Master’s of Business Administration (MBA) programs and similar business graduate degrees that is effective with the Fall 2010 semester.


Ed.D Doctoral Program: The CSU Board of Trustees at its June 18, 2010 meeting approved an increase in State University fees to $4,773 for graduate students enrolled in the Ed.D. doctoral program in Education Leadership in addition to local fees and nonresident tuition, if applicable.


Fall 2010

Installment Plans

All students who are eligible to enroll may use the installment plan, with the exception of students with Financial Aid deferments, approved waivers (not including nonresident exemption waiver) or subsidies, or students who defaulted on their Installment Plan agreements in the previous semester. Past due obligations must be paid on, before or with the first installment payment.


Students can sign-up for the installment plan through the census date, September 21, 2010. After September 7, 2010 both the first and second payments are due.


If you plan to participate in either plan for Fall 2010, complete the appropriate Tuition/Fee Installment Agreement form and submit it with your first installment payment to the Bursar's Office, ADM 155 or Student Services Building., Rm. 103. Students who miss the registration period and wish to participate in a deferred payment plan must go to the Bursar's Office.


In the event of an increase in fees, students are fully responsible to pay the difference without submitting an updated installment agreement form.
